Inför Sweden Rock 2014: Intervju med BLUES PILLS

Med 28 dagar kvar till Sweden Rock Festival fortsätter vi med serien “Inför Sweden Rock 2014”. Nästa band ut i denna serie är BLUES PILLS, där Rocknytts Effie Trikili fick chansen att ställa några frågor till bandet.


Ett nytt stjärnskott har tänts på den del av den svenska rockhimlen där arvet från de ljuva 60- och 70-talen förvaltas. Svensk-amerikansk-franska konstellationen Blues Pills bildades i december 2011 och släppte minialbumet ”Devil man” i oktober 2013. De har hyllats av både kritiker och prominenta kolleger som Amorphis, Witchcraft och Orchid. Soundet kunde komma direkt från Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplins, Creams och Fleetwood Macs 1967 och musiken framförs med både stil och sväng. Elin Larsson sjunger fantastiskt, tidvis rentav på svenska.


1. You’ve just released a mini-LP, how does that feel?

It feels good! The audience’s response for the two mini-LPs we released was great and that got us on quite a lot of shows and festivals. It was also a great way to introduce the band right before the full length release which will be in July. 

2. What expectations do you have on the gig at Sweden Rock Festival?
I don’t have much expectations on our actual performance as it’s always different and depends on many things, sometimes a show that I have bad expectations turns out amazing and vice versa; so I usually try to go without thinking about it to much. Though I’m getting excited as I’m looking at the website we are playing the same day as many bands I want to see (Canned Heat, Joe Bonamassa, and of course Black Sabbath) so I’ve got high expectations on the other bands playing that night.

3. What’s the best way to warm up for a gig?

I try to be as relaxed and focused as possible. I also get ready mentally, I’m anticipating the performance so when it’s time to go on stage I’m prepared and ready for it. Also it’s good to have a small band talk, hug or something to make sure everyone is feeling good and that we get all in the same mood.

4. What’s best with the swedish audience?
We haven’t played in Sweden that much so it’s hard to say but from what I’ve seen the audience is really into it. Sometimes it feels like they are really checking out the way you play, maybe because there is so many good musicians in Sweden so they really know what it’s all about. They usually think I’m swedish cause Elin speaks swedish on stage so that leads to some misunderstandings after the show when they come up to me talking in swedish and realise I don’t understand a word.

5. What kind of show can we expect at Sweden Rock Festival?
You can expect to see 4 people trying their best to play the music they feel and love. I’m guessing we play a mixture of blues rock and soul definitely inspired by the 60’s and early 70’s music. We try to play with as much of emotion and feeling as we can and don’t focus much about technical abilities. For the people that already know us, they can expect a show slightly different to what we’ve been doing before as we will be playing new songs and new arrangements.

6. How would you describe your music with three words?

Energy, feeling, dynamic. 

Blues Pills spelar fredag 6 juni klockan 17.00 – 18.00 på Rockklassiker Stage.
