SHE PAST AWAY

Writing and singing in our mother language gives us more freedom.

One of the main attractions on Black Easter 2016 surely is She Past Away. Jurgen had a chat with the band.

For those who are unfamiliar with the band, tell us about the history of the band, and your influences through the years. Did you play in other bands before?
We are active since 2009. We got involved in a variety of styles from extreme metal to post-punk to electronic. I got into dark wave in the late 90s. It took ten years to come up with She Past Away, due to the rarity of people into this style.

Which bands and artists influenced you?
We are into 70s and 80s new wave. Too many bands to mention really. The mechanized, desperate, dark sound of that era is the main influence.

You sing in Turkish, could you bring the same music/atmosphere in English?
We never tried it. Writing and singing in our mother language gives us more freedom. Maybe in the future we will try, we will see!

You guys come from Turkey. Is there a gothic scene over there?
There is not a dark wave and gothic scene in Turkey. Heavy metal, post-rock and experimental music are the main genres in the underground.

Which other bands in Turkey should we definitely discover?
I can suggest Kim Ki O, Ugly Shadows, Rhythm 0 and Reptilians From Andromeda.








She Past Away - Kasvetli Kutlama

Tüm renkler soldu

Kapkara çukurda

Tüm sesler sustu

Bir anda

Tüm ruhlar çürümüş

Kasvetli kutlama

Tüm sahte yüzlerde

Deri maske

Ve yine

Hiçlikte!

Boğuluyor benliğim

Derinlerde

All colors have faded,

in a pitch black hole

All voices are quiet,

suddenly

All spirits have rotted away,

sombre celebration.

Upon all the fake faces,

leather masks

And again,

within nothingness!

My existence drowning,

in the depths

Most of us don’t understand the lyrics, can you tell us what you mainly sing about?
I write lyrics about the negative side of our lives. It can be many things: loneliness, feeling empty, the negative impacts of religions or the daily trauma.

What inspires you to write songs?
Writing and composing is a meditative process.

The music you play has an 80's sound, and it reminds me of dark wave and cold wave. Any reason? Is it intentional?
This is purely because we listen to that kind of music. The 80s is an ocean, an era in which music was progressive and intimate.

Is the second album (Narin Yalnızlık) more mature than the first one (Belirdi Gece), you think?
That’s a natural process. Maybe we are growing up. Some songs of Berlirdi Gece were composed ten years ago, so in fact it is a collection of songs from the previous 10 years. Narin Yalnızlık reflects more what we are now.

You were on a tour for a long time after the release of Belirdi Gece. You also were on tour after the release of the second album. What is the biggest challenge to play live?
Not many things changed. We play longer now, but during festivals, you have a limited time. It is harder to choose what to add to the playlist and what not.

What do you prefer: a gig in a small venue or a bigger festival? And why?
It depends. Smaller clubs feel better due to the intimacy with the audience.

You played in Belgium some times (Café Bizarre in Dentergem and Botanique in Brussels), what's your idea about the audience in Belgium? Is it different than in other countries?
We also played in Eernegem at the B52. It was rather enjoyable. We like to play in Belgium. It is the home country of legends like Front 242 and Siglo XX. The audience knows what’s going on in music and the average age is higher. It is a pleasure to play for a more experienced audience.

On 26th March you perform at Black Easter Festival. What can we expect?
We will play songs from both albums. I expect it to be depressingly cold and rather danceable.

Are there any dreams you want to realize in the near future?
We are recording some new songs and we are working on a new video and the tours as usual.

Een van de headliners op Black Easter 2016 is natuurlijk She Past Away. Jurgen had een praatje met de band.

Voor degenen die niet zo bekend zijn met de band, vertel ons wat over de geschiedenis van She Past Away en over jullie invloeden. Hebben jullie voorheen in andere bands gespeeld?
Wij zijn actief sinds 2009. We hebben verschillende stijlen gespeeld, van extreme metal, post-punk tot elektronische muziek. Ik ontdekte dark wave in de late jaren 90. Het duurde tien jaar vooraleer She Past Away een groep werd, want zo veel mensen vind je hier niet die van dit genre houden.

Welke bands en artiesten hebben je beïnvloed?
Vooral newwaveartiesten uit de jaren 70 en 80. Te veel bands om op te noemen. De mechanische, wanhopige, donkere geluiden van die tijd zijn de belangrijkste invloeden.

Je zingt in het Turks, zou je dezelfde muziek en sfeer in het Engels kunnen brengen?
We hebben het nooit geprobeerd. Schrijven en zingen in je moedertaal geeft je meer vrijheid. Misschien dat we dat in de toekomst eens zullen proberen, we zullen zien!

Jullie komen uit Turkije. Is daar een gothscène?
Er is geen darkwave- of gothscène in Turkije. Heavy metal, post-rock en experimentele muziek zijn de belangrijkste genres in de Turkse underground.

Welke andere bands in Turkije moeten we zeker ontdekken?
Ik kan je aanraden om eens te luisteren naar Kim Ki O, Ugly Shadows, Rhythm 0 en Reptilians From Andromeda.

De meesten van ons begrijpen de teksten niet, kun je ons vertellen waarover je zingt?
Ik schrijf teksten over de negatieve kant van het leven. Het kan van alles zijn: eenzaamheid, een leeg gevoel, de negatieve gevolgen van religie of de dagelijkse trauma’s.

Wat inspireert je om liedjes te schrijven?
Ik vind componeren meditatief.

De muziek die je speelt heeft een jarentachtiggeluid en ze doet me denken aan dark wave en cold wave. Is daar enige reden voor? Was het opzettelijk?
Dit is puur omdat we dat graag horen. De jaren 80 is een ware oceaan, een tijd waarin muziek progressief en intiem was.

Is het tweede album (Narin Yalnızlık) rijper dan jullie eerste (Belirdi Gece), denk je?
Dat is een natuurlijk proces. misschien groeien we. Sommige nummers van Berlirdi Gece bestonden al ​​tien jaar, dus in feite was het een verzameling van liedjes van de voorbije 10 jaar. Narin Yalnızlık weerspiegelt meer wat we nu zijn.

Na de release van Belirdi Gece was je een hele tijd op toer. Wat is de grootste uitdaging om live te spelen?
Niet zo veel dingen zijn veranderd. We spelen nu langer, maar tijdens festivals heb je sowieso een beperkte tijd. Het is dan moeilijker om te kiezen wat je gaat spelen en wat niet.

Wat heb je liever: een optreden in een kleine zaal of een groter festival? En waarom?
Het hangt ervan af. In kleinere clubs voel je je beter wegens de intimiteit met het publiek.

Je speelde al vaak in België (Café Bizarre in Dentergem en de Botanique in Brussel), wat is jouw idee over het Belgische publiek? Is het anders dan in andere landen?
We hebben ook in Eernegem in de B52 gespeeld. Het was daar aangenaam. We willen nog meer spelen in België. Het is het land van legendes als Front 242 en Siglo XX. Het publiek kent de scène en de gemiddelde leeftijd is er ouder. Het is een genot om te kunnen spelen voor een meer ervaren publiek.

Op 26 maart sta je op Black Easter Festival. Wat kunnen we verwachten?
We zullen tracks spelen uit beide albums. Ik verwacht dat het deprimerend, koud en dansbaar zal zijn.

Wat zijn de dromen voor de nabije toekomst?
We zijn nieuwe liedjes aan het opnemen, bezig met een nieuwe video en zoals gewoonlijk aan het toeren.

Next interviews

MILA MAR • We might record and release some new songs, we might travel the world together … Right now everything seems possible.

HEKATE • I have the firm conviction that we can learn from myths and legends for our own lives and for our development.

SONJA KRAUSHOFER • I`m happy and proud that Thomas Rainer and I made it through all the years. I`m very thankful that I have the chance to be a singer... and do just what I really love to do.
LAIBACH • The European Commission suggested to veer towards a more classical style of entertainment than Laibach.
LEAETHER STRIP • Music is as important for me as food. It's my therapy, my comfort and soul. Every song I wrote has a special meaning for me and it's an ongoing and never ending learning process for me...
ROME • Cold Meat Industry gave me my start and I will always be thankful for that. I am not into looking back, really.
LEBANON HANOVER • Vaguely it’s around 1982 when music has been written that inspired and grabbed me, more than anything before or after. It's this feeling we want to revive.
