Interview With Up and Coming Artist Camlann
How did you come by your stage name?
Camlann’s own name comes from the Arthurian legend, The Battle of Camlann. It was King Arthur’s final battle. We’re all a fan of the mythology.
When did you discover your love for your craft and what made you realize you wanted to pursue a career in it?
It was around early 2019 when four of us decided to form the band. Our Bassist/Singer, Vinyl Godfrey, has always wanted to form a Post-Punk/Goth band since a few years ago. But it was in 2019 when we all finally formed this family we never knew we needed. We just want to show our music to the world and bring more goth/post-punk music to the music industry.
To what or whom do you accredit your sense of style?
Musically, we all really influenced by a lot of traditional Post-Punk and Shoegaze artists such as Joy Division, The Smiths, The Cure, Siouxsie, and the Banshees, Bauhaus, Cocteau Twins, and Slowdive. While on visual, we’re very influenced by Siouxsie Sioux and Robert Smith.
On your upcoming project, how did you come up with the concept?
We’re going to go into a more Shoegazy sound in our upcoming full-length debut album. We’re mixing Dark Post-Punk with Shoegaze this time. Expect a shimmering and ethereal guitar and vocal with a heavy dark Post-Punk Bassline and Industrial drum sound. Imagine Joy Division mixed with Cocteau Twins.
We came up with our upcoming album concept a few months ago when we’ve decided to mix Post-Punk with Shoegaze. Something which is very different from our previous materials. We’re trying something new.
What are some of your greatest challenges, and what is your greatest attribute when it comes to your work ethic?
We’re still high school students and we’re still 15-16 years old. So the challenges we have to face are usually time since we have to go to school and have a lot of school works to do. So it’s extra homework for us to do time management.
Are you the best at what you do in your opinion?
We don’t think so. We’re still teenagers and still quite new to these kinds of stuff. We’re still learning and need to learn a lot of stuff too. But we surely enjoy what we’re doing and we’re sure that we keep improving day by day!
What are your plans for the near future?
We’ll be releasing a single by December 2019, it’s our 1st single from our upcoming LP. we hope people will like it.
Is there anyone you’d like to thank, any shout outs?
Yes, definitely. Special thanks to our beloved manager and record label owner, Anida Bajumi, for the undying love and support she has given to us these past few months since working with her. Also special thanks to our parents for the support and encouragement they give to us.
