Aus dem Eastend Glasgows stammt die Band Ocevns, die sich diese Woche bei uns vorstellt. 5 Herren aus dem Herzen der schottischen Metropole haben sich Alternative Rock auf die Fahnen geschrieben und bieten fünf bittersüße Tracks auf ihrer Debut-EP. An neuem Stoff arbeiten sie bereits, doch erst einmal haben sie sich tapfer unseren Fragen gestellt.

Who is behind Ocevns?
Kris Tennant – Vocals, Glenn Holburn – Guitar, Gary Dillon – Guitar, Joe Carney – Bass and Garry Curran – Drums.

If you had to put your music into a drawer and print a label on it, what would it say?

Forget about genres for a second – Ocevns music sounds like …
Like honey … made by those killer bees.

Which sort of mood produces the best songs?
When you’re heartbroken or pissed off. I dont think I’ve ever written lyrics when Im happy, I’m scared what’ll happen or what I might uncover in me.

Which instrument will surely NEVER be heard on a Ocevns-album?
Bagpipes. Never, ever, bagpipes.

Which record would you want to listen to when you leave the bathroom in the morning, while the beautiful girl from last night is still in your bed?
„Im Not In Love“ by 10cc. Its the first song that comes to mind as I was listening to the Guardians of the Galaxy soundtrack yesterday which it features on.

The Fairy-Godmother pops up in front of you and grants you a wish. What do you wish for?
I’d wish for the girl from last night to get a taxi home.

No alcohol is no solution either. What booze combination will definitely dissolve all your troubles and issues?
Alcohol doesn’t give you the answers, it only makes you forget the question. Although, combining tequila … with more tequila is a laugh.


What shows you that someone is a true friend?
When nothing is off the table when it comes to making fun of each other.

Who was the hero of your childhood?
Probably Lion-O from Thundercats.

What is the most embarrassing/surprising record in your CD-shelf?
I’m not embarrassed by any record I listen to. I don’t believe in guilty pleasures. In the traditional sense though, I’d go with Take ThatProgress, which is easily the best pop record of the last ten years.

What’s next? Tour? Studio? Vacation? Something completely different?
In the next few weeks we’ll release our second single, Reborn, along with its video. We’ll then be planning our next single and something special to finish off our first year as a band. We’ve already started demoing our next release so the writing process for that will carry on throughout the next few months as well.
