Macondo talk to Loreli about being an international post-rock band with members from four different continents and how awesome their name sounds in a Columbian accent.
Posted Nov 12, 2015
Starting in 2014, Macondo is a cosmic 4 piece post rock outfit hailing from 4 continents. Their brand of music can be described as an infectious blend of hardcore, and electronic psychedelics. They are an attack on the senses, you have to watch them to experience it. Loreli caught up with them at their September 19th gig at Mao Livehouse, but sadly the Beijing music machine rocks much faster than we can keep up with and the Macondo lineup has already changed. At the time of recording, we got to hear from these guys:
Matt Byrne - Drummer (England), Sebastian Fernandez - Bass (Columbia), Gerald van Wyk - Synth (South Africa), Scott Slepicka - Guitar (United States of Minnesota)
Now, bassist Sebastian Fernandez has left the band and some guy named Fred has taken his place. Sebastian's spine-tingling Columbian pronunciation of "Macondo" will be missed but you can hear it in the interview below. You can check out the new Macondo lineup at Temple Bar on November 21st.
