Dödsögonblicket consists of three musicians who decided to switch instruments with each other in order to create a new, raw, straight to the point punk rock sound.
We are launching Unlimited – a flexible pricing plan to suit every artist’s creative process. Unlimited allows you to release as many tracks as you want for a fixed price, from $4.99/month. We got the chance to talk more about creativity with Record Union artist Dödsögonblicket.
How did you find each other? And was it self-evident that you were going to start a band?
At work, Anders met Tony, whose sister Tommy had an intimate relationship with. So yeah, it was pretty obvious we had to start a punk band together.
What inspires y’all the most?
Our main inspiration is:
What does creative freedom mean to you?
Being able to do whatever we want, whenever we want, without thinking. Ignorance is bliss.
As we know, working with creativity rarely goes in a straight line. How is it to work creatively in a group?
We believe in total chaos. We have no agenda or rules when it comes to songwriting. But, a hit is a hit – and we know when we hear it.
What is challenging about being an independent band?
Nothing, it’s a way of life. The punk rock culture in Sweden and abroad is alive and kicking. We take care of each other and pretty much don’t want or need anyone to tell us what to do or create.
Do you have any tips and tricks when feeling stuck in your work?
Jam it out. Don’t overthink it too much. Have a drink, some laughs and don’t worry. We’re confident in our own talent. Eventually, it will show.
So, when you’ve finally got the creativity flowing, how do you know when a track is done? And how do you feel when you release it for others to listen?
Usually, we all know simultaneously when a song is done. It’s when the energy is high, and we’re all laughing. We feed off each other when there’s collective electricity in the room and you just now.
Last but not least, what’s your next step? Do you have any projects in the pipeline?
Coming up, we’re releasing a new album called “Heavy Metal på Svenska”. Basically, we’re taking our punk rock roots and mixing it up with some classic heavy metal sounds.
