Behind The Track: Chinese Newspaper

7th March 2019

What was the inspiration/is there a story behind your track?

There’s not much of a story to be quite honest. We were kicking around the arrangement for quite some time at jam sessions, always altering it tiny ways. It wasn’t until we sat down and did a demo that it kinda made more sense. The whole “boredom” theme happened naturally as we never thought the demo process would end; torture! 

What did your process involve?

 Cheap pizzas from LIDL  and cans of Galahad. 

Do you have a favourite line/section of the song?

The end section/climax of the song is quite fun to play. Everyone gets to go a bit ‘moon’ which is never a bad thing. 

Can you describe your sound in three words?

Any filters lads? 

What’s the best thing about studying at BIMM Dublin?

The best thing about studying at BIMM Dublin is the street it’s on, “Francis Street”. It has everything you need within walking distance: some nice cafes, an off license, boojum, a pub were the Guinness is less than 5 euro. If you’re asking for anything more than that, you’re just being greedy. 

Chinese Newspaper will perform a headline set at Whelan’s (upstairs) on March 27th.
