Im Gespräch mit Griefjoy!

Standard

…so nennt sich die französische Band aus dem schönen Nizza! 😉
Lange kannte man sie vor allem in Deutschland noch nicht, damit sich das ganz schnell ändert, haben wir schon mal ein Interview mit ihnen geführt! 😉

Griefjoy ist eine fünfköpfige Band aus, wie oben schon erwähnt, Frankreich. Die Jungs machen seit 2012 zusammen richtig guten Electro Pop und haben auch seit kurzem ihr Album GRIEFJOY in Deutschland herausgebracht. Uns gefällt es wirklich super gut, haben uns auch schon ein paar Lieder gekauft! 😉 Bei iTunes gibt es ihren Song Feel übrigens für nur 69 ct !

Ja, und wir hatten das Glück mit dieser brillianten Newcomer Band ein Interview per Telefon zu führen!
Was sie so zu erzählen haben und wieso es ausgerechnet der Name Griefjoy werden sollte? Das erfahrt ihr jetzt! 😉
Viel Spaß beim Lesen!

For people who don’t know you,  how would you describe your music in three words?

GRIEFJOY:
I would say pop , maybe electro and moody.

 

Why did you decide to call yourself Griefjoy?

GRIEFJOY:
So, we’d like to feel both emotions at the same time and Griefjoy is two emotions, you know, grief and joy. And yes, we want people to dance and cry at the same time. And we think it’s the right word to express it.

Oh yes, that’s true. And do you have any other bands who influence your music?

GRIEFJOY:
Yes, some german bands! I don’t know if you know them,  apparat? 

Oh, no we didn’t know them yet.

GRIEFJOY:
Yeah, so we like this band. But we also other bands like a danish band influences our music.

Ah ok cool, no we don’t know them. Was it always clear to you, that you want to become musicians?

GRIEFJOY:
We learned music in Highschool, so in the beginning we started to play some covers like The Strokes or Arctic Monkeys, and after it we decided to compose our own songs and it was clear to us, that we want to be musicians in our life.

And is there any musician you’d like to record with?

GRIEFJOY:
Oh yes, I would say maybe Thom Yorke, from Radiohead, because we all are a huge fan of him. And maybe James Murphy from LSD Soundsystem, he’s a great producer and it would be a pleasure for us to work with him.

Your quite successfull in France, so what is it like starting from scratch in Germany?

GRIEFJOY:
Yeah, so our first album is out on Friday the 20th of September and we are very excited about this and we hope that the German audiance will like our music and we are very excited to play in Hamburg, the 28th of september at the Reeperbahn Festival, it’s our first festival in Germany, so we are very excited!

Very cool! Do you have a favorite Album at the moment that you could recommend to us?

GRIEFJOY:
Oh yes! This morning I heard the new Arctic Mokeys album, and yes I think it’s a great one! Maybe one of the best of their career. And we are very excited to the the new album from Arctic Fire, I don’t know when it’s gonna be out but I think it will be great! And we heard the Moderat album a few days ago and it’s very great, too.

Cool, thank you. And what are your plans for the future?

GRIEFJOY:
We have a europen Tour coming from september to december and after it, we don’t know, maybe composing new songs, maybe record a new album… we don’t know yet, so we will see what the future’s gonna be.

Thanks a lot to Griefjoy for the Interview!
