Charley, singer and frontman of the hardcore band Mindwake, did a quick Q&A with us!
WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST IMPRESSION OF YOUR BANDMATES WHEN YOU MET?
We have been friends since before the creation of the band, I saw them as good musicians and good friends, I was very excited to make music with them.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE MEMORY PLAYING SHOWS?
My favorite memory? Mmh … I think it was when a girl started doing a lap dance in front of me while I was singing, that was really cool hahaha.
WHAT ARTIST WOULD BE YOUR DREAM COLLABORATION?
Damn dude, there are too many! I would love to be able to collaborate with Nick Arthur from Molotov Solution, he is a reference for me in the metal scene! I would also like to be able to collaborate with Adam Warren from Oceano, We could create something very violent.
WHAT SONG ARE YOU MOST PROUD OF AND WHY?
The track I’m most proud of hasn’t been released yet, it’s a track that will be released in the near future! I’m proud of it because it’s the evolution of the album, a more aggressive voice, more groovy flows, more catchy lyrics. I can’t wait to share this with you.
WHAT IS YOUR GO-TO GAS STATION ORDER?
Monster, Monster and uh…Cigarettes and a ham and cheese sandwich.
WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR NON-MUSICAL INFLUENCES?
I am very influenced by films and film music which make me dream and imagine lots of things! Also by the daily life, by this shit reality haha
WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO YOUR YOUNGER SELF?
Believe in yourself, love yourself, act, don’t be afraid to try and fail, waste as little time as possible and separate yourself from people who are not worth it.
WHAT ARE YOUR GOALS FOR THE YEAR?
Release our next EP, find a label and partners to work with, book a tour, do lives and make lots of friends.
