SEE HEAR SPEAK: from Slovenia to Greece, trying to build a new European diy punkrock scene

SEE HEAR SPEAK project was brought to life after the INxSANE (SI) breakup, with cooperation of Real Life Version (SI) and Despite Everything (GR) members; they are touring Balkans

Hi. Tell us your story in 3 sentences.
SEE HEAR SPEAK is an open project that consists of musicians who share the same ideas and taste of music. We try to create an atmosphere full of energy flooded with life experiences, our ambitions for better future and relations with friends and families who shape us. After a breakup of INxSANE (SI), some of us still had the need to express ourselves through music and with cooperation with members of Real Life Version (SI) and Despite Everything (GR) we brought the project to life.

Tell us something about your last album or your last musical production.
5 track EP »Time Heals« was created in only 8 days! And that means 8 days practice not studio time!:) After finishing the recording 2 hours before the first tour in February 2014 with members of Real Life Version (SI) we all knew this is going to be something special. We released it on a diy cassette in 140 copies. Now with members of Despite Everything (GR) we are working on a new release which we plan on releasing in February 2015 following with the tour with Kids Insane (IS) in the Balkans and hopefully joining the Vodka Juniors (GR) Club riot tour across Europe.

What is your “home ground” area? Tell us something about it.
Our base is currently in Athens Greece. We are working with Vodka Juniors (GR) and many other Greek bands like 10 to Go (GR) , Despite Everything (GR), Bandage (GR), Bangies (GR), Wish Upon A Star (GR)… we are trying to build the diy punkrock scene here in Greece.

What’s the best live act in your area? Tell us something about it.
The most active and working band is definitely Vodka Juniors (GR)! They released a new album »Club Riot« which consists of 57 songs and is way too diverse than anything you have ever heard before in means of musical directions. They are touring Europe from the end of February on for 100 days!! And of course we will be there with them as individuals to help making their tour achieve good things for the future and to introduce the new shape of punk/hardcore/dub/reggae to the wider audience beside the Greek. And if it goes as planned SHS might also join on some of the touring dates.

Which artists have influenced your style & sound, if any?
Many different musical influences are involved here. It really depends on what we are impressed by in the specific moment of creation. But we can say that almost all styles are involved here individually and in general most of the music with message and energy be it electronic or acoustic whether crust or pop, jazz or hardcore. But we come from a 90′ punkrock youth so this is kind of ingrained in us and that’s how we feel most comfortable expressing ourselves.

Any favourite artists?
So many!:)

What’s the last live music show you’ve seen?
Vodka Juniors (GR) filling up Pricipal Club in Thessaloniki, Greece

Tell us something about your best and your worst memory on the road
The best experience was on stage when all the members felt the same connection and comfort and that’s when things came together and the whole process of creating the band made sense and gave will and lust for more! Bad ones we don’t count and we want to forget as soon as possible!

Did you plan to have a tour in the next future? Tell us something about it.
There are plans for February 2015! Touring Balkans and Greece with Kids Insane from Israel. Next is a supporting tour with Vodka Juniors (GR) throughout Europe. Follow us through our social media for more information on that!

What do you think about LiveTrigger? Did you manage to book any shows?
We think it’s a great idea and we are happy to see it bloom! We support you and hope for it to reach the expectations it has! Thank you for having us on board!!! 🙂
