"Interview: Rusland Fernandes, Coldsleepyhead"

Rusland Fernandes is the founder of the band/project Coldsleepyhead also owns one of the best releases of the year in Paraíba , the EP More Conscientious Behavior. The album is lo-fi and only has 5 tracks , including two instrumentals and three sung. MCB was released timidly in January this year by the Finnish label Siko Records. The band played one show throughout his career, but it turns out to be very promising in its first release. We talked a little as Rusland began the project, recording at his own home, and even the band's next steps. Check out : - Atividade FM

"Thrilled"

Pop music that draws influence from shoegaze and lo-fi indie pop. It's pretty odd that we haven't released any music that fits into that description, given that we've put out quite a lot of different kinds of music from bedrooms around the world and a lot of bedroom musicians operate in this area.

Well, Coldsleepyhead and his EP More Conscientious Behavior is a great way to get that "genre" covered. The Brazilian musician makes music to listen to with your friends, if you still have any left after playing them our previous releases. Uplifting, charming lo-fi pop that makes you want to hug and kiss people. Hugging and kissing is good for you, you know. - Siko Records


"Coldsleepyhead - More Conscientious Behavior (2013)"

Inspirado por algumas bandas da atual década – além de outros clássicos anos 90 – o pessoense Rusland Fernandes traz no primeiro EP do seu projeto solo chamado Coldsleepyhead, uma mistura bem barulhenta de guitarras distorcidas, melodias pop e arranjos eletrônicos. Tudo isso ao se misturar pode soar um pouco como o primeiro álbum de Big Troubles e algumas outras bandas de Nova Jérsei. Isso pode ser explicado porque a cultura do it yourself está enraizada neste trabalho, já que tudo foi gravado dentro do próprio quarto no tempo livre durante a greve dos professores da UFs em 2012. Se você gosta de música alta, barulhenta e divertida, poderá ser uma boa pedida para você escutar com as pessoas que você ama na praia tomando qualquer coisa que você goste... - Hominis Canidae

"Coldsleepyhead - More Conscientious Behavior"

So we have a Brazilian singing songs in English and releasing them on a Finnish label. The world is indeed getting smaller, especially thanks to the internet, a medium that means you can download these five songs and have copies of them in a matter of seconds. They're all free, but fans of waiting and physical things can order a CD from the link below and there will be some handmade cassettes to follow, meaning the past collides with the future. It does so with the music too, Coldsleepyhead is the solo guise of Rusland Fernandes and this EP is a mixture of punk, indie, electronica and generally DIY sounds from the past and present. It's a fine listen too, and a high energy one at that.

If you're going to make an instrumental track then you may as well give it a ridiculous name, and so this EP opens with the fizzing, electronic song 'To The Stars With Your Fluffy Tears' and then launches straight into 'I Want To (I Never)' where drum machines meet muffled vocals and some buzz-saw guitars. The trick is repeated with added handclaps on 'Perhaps It's Platonic' before we get possibly the best of the bunch in 'All', a non-stop riot of a song on a non-stop riot of an EP where synthesized sounds mingle with crude guitar and a love of noise. Final track 'You're Going Out' is a bit like a Jesus & Mary Chain demo, and that's a compliment. It's all a bit like downing five cans of Red Bull in a row; you'll need to have a lie down afterwards to recover. - The Sound of Confusion

Bio

Coldsleepyhead started in June 2012 during a strike of professors in almost all federal public colleges in Brazil. And, with a lot of free time, Rusland Fernandes started to record songs in his own bedroom in some analogic and digital equipament. Also it's necessary to say it all begun because of the Cali and NJ scene of lo-fi noise pop that influenced him very much.
