Birds on Clouds is a band formed of 7 people, making dreamy indie pop music.
With their latest EP ‘Nothing changes if nothing changes’ released the band joined us for an interview to talk about music and culture.
Hi, how are you guys?
We are really good! It’s summertime.
So, how did Birds on Clouds form?
Lina gathered some friends together, and here we are. It started with a fun musical vision and ended up with our Birds on Clouds sound. We began combining different genres and now it feels like we found our expression. From a kind of indie folk, singer-songwriter sound to more of a playful dreamy and melancholy sound.
What are the band’s influences?
A hard question. We all come from and like different musical backgrounds so we basically have broad influences of indie pop, folk music, rock, and pop.
If you could collaborate with any artist who would it be?
Also a hard question, we’ve in a way just started our journey so we can’t really say a specific artist. Thinking about it, it would be interesting to do a collaboration with a philharmonic orchestra actually, that could create a nice dreamy sound combination.
Describe yourselves in one word.
Describe your music in one word.
What are your goals for the rest of 2017?
To have a release party and write new inspiring music.
What is your definition of culture?
Culture is something you share with at least two people. Everyone and everything is part of a culture. It includes social behaviour, music, art and much more. It can be in the walls of your job, from the city of the country you grew up in, in the group of your friends and family. It’s a part of life and being able to be open to learn other cultures is a part of being a human being. We are all different, we all come from different experiences, but we are still the same. You never know what’s behind a person’s actions. The important thing is to be curious and to have a will to learn.
