Interview - Viscula

Today let's have a chat with Viscula a band that have released the new album 'IV' on December 17th, 2021.

- Hi guys and welcome to this interview. Tell us about your latest release, album 'IV'.
Hello, thank you for the invitation! Album 'IV' is Viscula's fourth studio album. It is remarkable that it is completely instrumental and this is the first such experience for us.

- How would you describe your sound?
Sound producer George Shilling (Blur, Primal Scream) was responsible for the sound of our new album and it seems to us that he said something about post-rock with elements of psychedelic, folk and trip hop.

- What do you write about?
We write about all life topics that excite the human imagination and about incomprehensible things that focus our thoughts.

- What do you listen to when you are home?

We listen to classical and jazz because we have so too much rock music around our creative life.

- Your favourite live performance so far?
There are several of them, one of them really didn't happen because we didn't find a scene in the woods when we hurried to the festival.

- Tell us a funny story that happened in studio or on stage.
Among other entertainments on the stage is a performance at the Rock Club of one of the towns of the Tibetan Plateau in China. There were yakuza-like people sitting there and we thought they would eat us right after the performance. We also mention our very first performance in 2002 in the university auditorium, where instead of a lecture on rock music, our performance was staged. This was our first and last visit to university auditoriums.

- Your favourite albums?
Let's mention three, they are not the most favorite just come to mind first: 
a) Deep Purple 'in Rock' b) Pink Floyd 'The Wall' c) Nirvana 'Nevermind'.

- A musician you would like to meet for a beer?
In fact, we prefer not just drinking beer with musicians to play with them. The last such case happened to us when the legendary bassist Alexander Titov (Kino, Aquarium) joined Viscula to record the above-mentioned album 'IV'.

- What would you ask for backstage, if you were the most important band on earth?
We would ask for the highest honorarium on earth.

- What are your plans for the near future?
No, we do not plan to become the most important group on Earth, but we plan to celebrate the 20th anniversary of our band with dignity at the end of this year.
