Sandra Kolstad, el Electro-Indie noruego llega a Madrid.

El próximo sábado 18 de enero tendremos la oportunidad de ver en directo en Café La Palma a Sandra Kolstad, cantante muy popular en Noruega gracias a su pop electrónico que ella misma define: bailable, explosivo y extravagante.
Aquí os dejamos con una pequeña entrevista que concedió especialmente a Urban Side Project

1. I would like to know something about your influences both in rock and electronic music. How did you start as a musician and when did you choose to play electronic music?
When I grew up, my father was running a record store in Oslo, the first record store there to bring in alternative music from abroad. I grew up listening to a lot of progressive music and space rock, like Hawkwind and Gong. Later on I developed my own taste for hip hop and electronic music. Parallell to this I was always playing classical piano. As I started getting serious about making my own music, the sound that felt right was within electronic music. Now I am slowly also integrating more acoustic sounds into the electronic sound. That’s very interesting and exciting.
2.   What feelings do you want to find out in your Album ‘(Nothing Last) Forever’? What do you want to say to people?
(Nothing Lasts) Forever was written with water as the theme, both lyrically and musically. Water is a heavy symbol, associated with the unconciusness, birth, life, death.... And to me most of all change. (Nothing Lasts) Forever is about the only thing we know is true: That everything is changing all the time. The terror of it, and the beauty of it.
3.   You also use visuals during your show, dont you? What do you want to comunicate with that?
I don t always use visuals as in video projections, but my show is always very visual. That is something that comes very natural to me. I think a concert is a bit like a ceremony, a ritual.
4.   What do you think about the norwegian electro-indie scene? What other bands do you like in Norway?
Norway has a lot of very exciting bands and artists within different genres. Some of my favourites are King Midas, Jenny Hval and my own bass player Eivind Henjum who has a skweee/electronic solo project called Sprutbass.

5.   What about electronic clubs in Norway? What cities do you think are good to play in an indie-band?
Norway is sparsely populated, and I think the best cities to play in are the cities with the most inhabitants: Like Oslo, Bergen, Trondheim.. But even though it’s a small country, Norway has some really good clubs and festivals for electronic music, like the club Blå in Oslo, and the Numusic Festival in Stavanger. That said, it’s also a lot of fun playing smaller places in Norway. I’ve had some of my best concert experiences playing really small places, like this one festival on the border of Norway and Sweden, in the middle of the Woods. The border actually went right through the stage, so my bass player was standing in Sweden, my drummer in Norway, and I… Well, I was running back on forth between the two countries.
