Interview with the band KALPA

Have you ever played in Bulgaria?

No, this tour is the first time we’ll be performing abroad and Sofia, specifically, will be our very first foreign destination. So we guess it’ll be kind of a special show.

What are you expectations for the show?

We try not to carry any expectations with us. We believe that every place is going to be a unique experience and hopefully a good one.

What do you think about Greek scene?

The underground scene in Greece is in a really good place right now, there is constant circulation and plenty of decent releases to listen and bands to watch to. Every weekend you’re forced to make a decision in which gig you’re going to be and most of them are excellent, so that’s a tough one. In Athens that’s the case for sure. So, in a few words, things are happening!

How much of an influence is the culture of Greece to your music?

We don’t believe that we lived a unique cultural upbringing. In our opinion, culture in contemporary societies tends to share many similarities. Everything we know about our culture as Greeks is what we learned through sources that are available to the most. The thing’s for sure that we’re not anything like the ancient Greeks were. Only chance had to do with us being born here. We consider ourselves people of the world and we’re influenced by literally everything that affects our daily lives.

What’s in the future for you?

We believe in keeping things neat and simple and not plan too far ahead. After the tour we’ll continue working on some more new material for a third album and keep doing as many shows as we possibly can.

Anything you'd like to say to the fans?

Support your local bands, they really need it.

In April this year you released the album „Dissociation”. What was your inspiration for it?

Pretty much everything going on around our lives, really. It’s been a hectic couple of years for Greece -and not necessarily in the good sense-, so it all found a way to get into our music, inevitably.

Are you satisfied with the reactions of the fans?

We are happy as long as the people that come to our shows look happy and entertained. You can’t really ask for much more.

In your facebook profile is written that the band stands against “any kind of damage imposed from one human to another”. Is that the most important thing for the band?

That’s certainly our motto, but do not misjudge us. That’s the world we would like to live in, but at times you just got to take some action.

You have tour with Minerva Superduty. What are your expectations for it?

The whole tour is meant for both bands’ music to get reached by as many people as possible. If in any extend we succeed on that, that’d be it.
