Despite only just starting out on the new music scene in recent months, Barcelona's Best Seller Of The Same Name are looking to bring a wealth of influences to their debut single 'Everybody Wants Some'.
Channeling a mixture of psychedelic and Britpop aesthetics throughout, 'Everybody Wants Some' makes for a dense and textured introduction to the outfit. Filled with woozy hooks, sweeping production, and some truly otherworldly vocals throughout, expect to be hearing a lot more from this lot in the months to come.
So with the new single out and about, we sat down with them to find out more about their background and what has inspired them most over the years.
What was the first instrument you fell in love with?
What has been the most prominent inspiration behind your music so far?
Anton Newcome of the Brian Jonestown Massacre.
What kind of music did you love as a teenager?
Oasis, Britpop, then a bit later 80s guitar bands.
What do you find is the best environment to find inspiration for your music?
Anything, but it helps to be creative – ‘Inspiration exists, but it has to find you working’.
Who are your favourite artists you have found yourself listening to at the moment?
Paul Weller, The Cribs, Anderson Paak.
How many of your songs have you written about people you wish you’d rather forget?
I don’t really write songs about anyone else, but there are lots of tunes that are increasingly terrible with time!
What has been the funniest moment in your career so far?
Auditioning a keyboard player who’d never played a keyboard before he turned up. He bought a (decent) keyboard the morning before we played. Very bizarre!
If you could open a show for anyone in the world, who would it be?
If you weren’t a musician, what other path do you think you might have taken?
And what is the best piece of advice you have received as a musician?
You only have to answer to yourself.
