We are sharing our recent interview with Astroblue Express, a dream pop, alternative pop, space pop band, based in Brooklyn that fuses different musical genres and cinematic sounds, with a futuristic vibe.
Twist Online : Who or what inspired you to get into launch “Astroblue Express “?
Astroblue Express : Music has always been a big part of our lives, but it’s taken many different forms and career tumbles before we decided to create a band. Initially, the band was created as a form of artistic freedom. A space to experiment independently, and to serve it to the public without any big corporate filters or obligations to other bosses.
Twist Online : Our readers would like to know about the band members and their roles in the band?
Astroblue Express : Sela produces all the songs. He is a film composer and a classical pianist. Maya, the lead singer and songwriter, is a science fiction writer and a multi-medium artist. Together we molded a sound that fits both our styles and interests.
Twist Online : Tell us about your recent release “Kingdom of Moments”?
Astroblue Express : We are very proud of “Kingdom of Moments.” It’s the first of a very positive, uplifting EP we’re working on, which has a more polished and defined sound than our previous album. It came to us after we had reached a certain peak of stress. It really could have gone in only two directions; complete collapse, or changing our approach to things. From that breaking point, we had a certain realization that we need to pause more and enjoy the details of all the moments, which make our life worth living.
Twist Online : What kind of response you have received from the release?
Astroblue Express : The responses we’ve been getting have been wonderful. It’s brought a lot of joy to people. Being able to give that experience to people feels really good.
Twist Online : Working in studios or performing on stage, what do you enjoy the most?
Astroblue Express : It’s all very exciting, but the best moments are probably when a song kind of comes to you, and you’re just starting to mold it into something. It’s like a puzzle or a riddle that you’re solving, trying to get it right.
Twist Online : Have you set some goals to achieve?
Astroblue Express : We hope to create many more albums that bring something different to the mainstream, but our main goal is always to give people an interesting musical and visual experience. Also, we hope to collaborate with other musicians and artists.
Twist Online : Are you working on any new project?
Astroblue Express : Currently, we’re preparing for the release of our next song, which will be followed by our new EP.
