Vincent Liou Interview on Nagamag

.


Nagamag:
Which are the genres that describe your music style better?

Vincent Liou:
Indie pop


Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Vincent Liou:
I started piano when I was young and then played bass and clarinet for a few years. I loved making huge chords on the piano. I joined a band (Crash Coordinates) in high school and played minimal keys – I was basically the hype man. I wrote my first song in college in 2010 where I (low-key) ripped off Owl City’s ‘”Fireflies.” I wrote four EPs and recorded with Bob Hoag during that time. After graduating from PA school in Massachusetts, I moved back to Arizona to live with my momma (school is expensive you know!). After I came back, I met a girl who was cool, but she broke my heart – she was dating someone else at the same time we were together. My most recent ‘Big Surf’ EP are the songs that came out of that experience.


Nagamag:
Do you remember your first connection of love to music that was the right impact to be a music artist now?

Vincent Liou:
I was lucky enough to have parents that liked good music. My dad would play John Denver and my mom played The Eagles. From there I started discovering new artists that really helped color my world. The artists that really showed me that music was freedom are many but Primus, The Locust, Minus the Bear, really solidified my belief.


Nagamag:
Many artists listen to genres that they are not producing music for. Which track is your favorite that is NOT similar to yours?

Vincent Liou:
Whitney Houston "I Wanna Dance with Somebody (Who Loves Me)"


Nagamag:
Of Course Nagamag would love to listen also which is the track from a similar artist you admire?

Vincent Liou:
Bonnie Raitt "I Can't Make You Love Me"

RUNAE – You’re My Wild Storm (Spotify)

Tags: , , |

“Juicy modern mix, angelic voice and pleasant warm atmosphere. Sound elements equally occupy a music space and seems to whisper on the ear, I'm with you, I'm near. Casting melodic work!”

“Сочная, современная аранжировка, ангельский голос вокалистки и приятная, ламповая атмосфера. Музыка обволакивает, равноправно занимают музыкальное пространство и словно шепчет на ухо, - я с тобой, я рядом. Цепляющее мелодичное произведение!”

-Nagamag.com

Runae shared few words behind this song inspiration with Nagamag:

"I wrote this song myself this summer in my bedroom and home studio in Hundested in Denmark where I live. The song is about feeling attracted to the wild and tells the story about being in love with this wild person who is unpredictable but at the same time has a power over you. I am inspired by nature and like to use elements from nature in both my lyrics and visuals.

The song has a romantic soft pop mood."

XHOANA X – The Villain (Video)

Tags: , |

“Enjoy the lung melody, angelic singing and an interesting selection of chords. The bold rhythm section, which seems to be dug in your brain, and dramatism allocated on a general background adds energy and lush atmosphere to the already bright work!”

“Наслаждаетесь лёгкой мелодией, ангельским пением и интересным подбором аккордов. Дерзкая ритм-секция, которая словно впивается в ваш мозг, а ярко выделяющийся на общем фоне драматизм лишь добавляет и в без того яркую работу долю энергии и пышной атмосферы!”

-Nagamag.com

Albanian born XHOANA X takes her dark, Eastern European heritage very seriously. From an upbringing of one of the most tolerant spiritual cultures in the world, comes a unique style of art, with a mixture of freedom, rebellion and heroism.

The relaxed form of culture from Albania is the driving force here. You are in the darkest little corner of your room. And yet, this is where you find that you are most comfortable. Although perhaps you also find yourself a bit surprised at the ease in which you exist here.

The unexpected seems natural.

The rich enthralling darkness is the vibe.

Following in the footsteps of early musical influences the likes of Massive Attack and ‪Portishead, XHOANA’s music takes us on a spellbinding journey, as if we are preparing for a series of pagan rituals based on mystical beliefs.

Make no question here, she is the high priestess, and in full control of the ritual. The journey is a web in which we are caught, but you’ll find it hard to turn your ears away. You are trapped in a web of intrigue and sensuality while a neo noir movie plays in your head.

Her look and fashion is no less captivating, additionally filled with occasional David Lynch-esque twists and turns. Although her main ambition has always been on developing her musical recording career, XHOANA has also worked both as an actress, influencer, and model.
