I Had Plans + Seila Chiara
I Had Plans (Lissabon, Portugal)
“I Had Plans – the name describes what the most of us have already felt one to many times. 5 take part in this well-traveled project from the Potuguese sun in a winter scenery. After two european tours and single shows with their buddies Adorno and nothing but a demo cd-r, they now got released through unterm durchschnitt with their first album.
Life could be a lot easier, if one was happy to work behind a till, as an insurance company’s agent with a headset behind a computer screen, or with any promissing career path, – this is what I HAD PLANS wrote in their Biography. They may not haven been that lucky in more conservative lifestyles, but they certainly have found happiness in their work as musicians and artists. Their first record doesn’t follow the principle of art for art’s sake, it´s a reflection of life in prismatic colours: “If our work grasps an inclined political atitude it’s because we are alive, and we face life with a kind of love, respect and childish sense of wonder that makes us question somethings that just feel wrong and unjust” comments Iuri Silva.”
Seila Chiara (Lyon, FR)
SEILA CHIARA play a mix of styles. You can find some real melodic, almost post-rockish moments mixed with some kind of classic french-emo-elements and also some post-punk. These songs are beautiful, clear, simple. Completely free of any clichés. Think of AMANDA WOODWARD meets AMALTHEA or DOMINIC and Seila Chiara sound even better than that!
