Today, we have the pleasure of interviewing Jonas Noise from the all-instrumental rock band ‘Sometimes Lost.'
Sometimes Lost blends post-rock, punk, emo, and alternative DNA into original music that shakes up the typical rock formula and doesn't require vocals to paint a beautiful picture. The band's first release, Missing Tapes, dropped on April 18th, 2019, and displays its unique brand of rock music in all its glory.
Hi, nice having you here! Please tell us what it is you do.
I play guitar, bass, and synths on an instrumental band named Sometimes Lost, formed mid-2016/2017 in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico.
Please tell us about your music and about your previous album, Missing Tapes (2019).
Missing Tapes was great, we have a lot of expectations with this album, and as we were just to start the tour, the pandemic situation came. We used to have several demos before this one came, so as you know, the best songs are the ones that get here.
In the beginning, when we were recording this album, and we just finished this, we had an electrician problem that destroyed the memory of the computer. This incident led us to record the whole album again. We recorded this album in just 4 days.
What's the band Sometimes Lost doing right now?
We are right now in the studio. We are recording a new album; we hope this could be out in Nov – Dec 2021. I think this is faster, melancholic and some of these songs are longer. This new album, it's something like the second part of Missing Tapes, has some kind of this essence.
We hope to start the tour in December through Tijuana, San Diego, Los Angeles, and almost all the west coast.
What have you been listening to lately?
I have been listening to John Coltrane, Misfits, and the new Mogwai album (As the love continues). This album is great, by the way.
R.D I know, is listening to a lot of Incubus & Johnny, I know, is listening to Propagandhi; he loves that band. And I think they are awesome musicians too.
Do you have some literary influences, and does this has an influence on the music creation?
Yes, for sure! I like Isaac Asimov's books (Lucky Star, Yo Robot). I like how fiction influences our music through synthesizers, depressive guitars, and loud drums.
We like books, and we also love movies. My favorite director is Alejandro Jodorowsky. Santa Sangre is one of our favorite films. Through these influences, we like to provide a kind of indulgence in our songs that identify us with certain settings.
Any message for our readers.
You don't need words. The music, it's the guide, the map, and the description.
Fantastic! So tell us, how can people find out more about your music?
Well, we have an Instagram handle @SometimesLostMusic, and we are right now on Spotify, Tidal, YouTubeMusic, IHeartRadio, Deezer, and a lot of other platforms where you can hear our music.
Thank you so much for giving us your precious time! We wish you the best for your journey ahead!
