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"

Himmat Singh – Gulabo Meri

Tags: , , , , |

“-Himmat Singh- holds the balance between two faces- the rhythm and the indie R&B melody and such a lyrical, romantic manner of performance. The feeling that you sway on the waves of the Pacific Ocean and, together with charming music, everything is perceived very naturally and convincingly. (Automatically Translated with Google Translate)

“-Himmat Singh- удерживает баланс между двумя гранями — ритмом и мелодией Indie R&B и такой лирической, романтической манерой исполнения. Чувство, что покачиваешься на волнах тихого океана и вместе с очаровательной музыкой всё воспринимается очень естественно и убедительно.”

NEO NOIR – Always You (2022)

Tags: , , |

“Similar tracks are often devoted to each other in love couples, who are associated with deep and sincere feelings. The successfully selected arrangement in the Dream Pop genre and warm vocals -neo noir- can serve as an ideal gift to your loved one. (Automatically Translated with Google Translate)

“Подобные треки часто посвящают друг другу влюблённые пары, которых связывают глубокие и искренние чувства. Удачно подобранная аранжировка в жанре Dream Pop и тёплый вокал -Neo Noir- могут послужить в качестве идеального подарка вашему любимому человеку.”

-Nagamag.com

Always You was originally released in 2020 for a brief period of time. Written in Los Angeles during the turbulent times of the COVID Pandemic, Systemic Racism & rampant Climate Change, “Always You” was inspired by the beauty of everything around us that we’ve taken for granted. Whether that’s a significant other, the world, etc. it was an influence in crafting the messaging and music, lyrics and overall vibe of this song. Musically we went with a more organic approach as we’ve both been playing guitar lately. We wanted to get back to our roots that got us into producing in the first place.

NEO NOIR is an LA based Future Music collective based around producers Bradley Allan & Greg Ogan. Some notable credits between them include Bruno Mars, Britney Spears, Sean Kingston, Brandi, Justin Bieber, Kelly Clarkson, Rihanna and more. They formed NEO NOIR at the start of 2017 as a passion project to create music collaborations with talented singers that share their artistic vision. This enables them to experiment freely and push boundaries more so than when producing specifically for other artists. Their first song “When I Was Young (ft. Brooke Williams) broke a million streams and is currently at 2 million. They currently have 8.5 million streams on Spotify combined as of 2020. Also worth noting is that they’ve been a featured artist on MTV's “The Challenge” as well as featured in an international Hershey’s Chocolate commercial campaign since the start of 2020. They’re also in rotation on the NFL on Fox - NFL Kickoff this season.
