Beautiful Collision - Beautiful Collision Newsletter Interview

15 Jun 2012 // An interview by Shade
 

What can we expect to see from Beautiful Collision over the next year?

We’re heading to Napier early in July; Beautiful Collision have been selected to perform at the City Showcase. If we take out the big prize at the Showcase, we’ll earn a slot at Rhythm & Vines 2012 and, we'll be sent off to London next year. We’re pretty excited about all that! We’ll also be heading into the studio this year to work on our debut single/EP; we’re also excited about that! You’ll also see us out there doing more live performances; we’ll be aiming to get out of Auckland so, the people of NZ can expect to experience some collisions of a beautiful kind happening around the country. We’re excited about that too! I guess you could say we’re an excitable bunch.

What advice would you like to give to other aspiring musicians?

Don’t be afraid to follow your dream. Work hard at it; don’t give up. Remember, you’re pursuing something that really excites you; it’s what makes you tick. If it’s really what’s in your heart; take your passion and, make it happen! I think that last bit's a song lyric but we won’t say which song haha.

What will Beautiful Collision’s next release be?

We’ll be releasing our debut single/EP later this year. We’ve had some demos out there for a while now; those tracks are definite contenders but we’re not going to give too much away. We performed a couple of songs live on 95bFM and had listeners phone/txt/email the dj voting for what they thought it should be; 'Eyes Wide Open' won hands down. So, that one’s definitely on the table but, It may be something that nobody’s heard or maybe something even we haven’t heard! [joking]

How do you come up with your lyrics?

We are story tellers. First and foremost, it’s gotta come from the heart. Inspiration from a life experience perhaps or, something that’s happened or happening in your life. It’s got to be something you care about. Songs are a great vehicle for getting a message out there to people; if the words of a song touch someone, effects them or has an impact on their life, even in some small way; that’s a beautiful collision; job done.

Who would you most like to support live?

Ha! There are a couple that spring to mind immediately; Incubus or Stereophonics. Both bands are prolific song writers and musicians and both are awesome live.

How do you believe Beautiful Collision fits into the NZ music industry?

We hope to breathe, or should we say, inject new life back into NZ’s rock/pop scene. We believe we have something unique to offer; an international sound that will appeal to a wide audience; honest, accessible, songs with real meaning. There’s a gap out there for our music; um, maybe it’s more of a void! Ok, we’re gonna stick our neck right out here and say... move over the ‘indie crowd’; it’s time to shave off the beard and hang up your cardi’s; Beautiful Collision have arrived with their deliciously edgy, pop-infused rock, and we’re here to stay!

How do you describe Beautiful Collision’s music?

We’re all about songs that come from a place at the centre of who we are; the heart. I guess our songs kind of challenge the perception of the way things are and, how they could be. Our songs have an edge; people say our raw energy comes through in our music. In a word, passionate.

What inspired you to start Beautiful Collision?

Beautiful Collision is my calling; I truly believe that. Of course, music is our passion and we wanted to fill the gap out there and breathe new life into pop/rock music. But, faith is also very much in the mix; it’s in the songs. I wanted [needed] to put something out there, something that would move people; effect people in some way. Songs and music that people could take with them into their day; into their lives.

How did you come up with the name Beautiful Collision?

The name Beautiful Collision was born out of the answer to your last question; it seemed to be the perfect fit. Songs impacting people in a positive way; music colliding with people; that’s a beautiful collision. It has a double meaning: it’s also about the people in the band; we all hail from different parts of the world; Scotland, England, Philippines, Holland and, of course, New Zealand. Different cultures, musical influences and people colliding and creating music; that’s also a beautiful collision.

What rumour would you like to start about Beautiful Collision?

Rumour has it that Beautiful Collision will take out the big prize at the City Showcase, Napier in July and, be jetted off to London to start a New Zealand World Order of deliciously edgy, pop-infused rock music. You heard it here first!

 

About Beautiful Collision
