Freedivers is a alternative Rock/Grunge trio from Barcelona.
The band is formed by:
Sergi Blanch (vocals & guitar), Rafa d Villegas (bass) and Xavi Blanch at the Drums.
The Band is currently working on new material and it will be released by the end of December.
I managed to have a chat with Rafa and asked three questions:
1- What Music means to you and which message you want to give to your listeners?
-For us, music is a tool, a medium that allows us to connect with people. In our songs we tell daily and personal stories trying to convey what is happening with our society ,and we do in sincere way so that the message is received
2- Name 3 bands that influenced your music and why they influenced you?
-As a band we have influences from the Seattle sound of the 90s, from bands like Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden etc, but each of us has their own influences. In my case I am personally very influenced by Nirvana, Alice in Chains, Pixies. It is the music that I have been listening to forever.
3- What are your plans for the future?
-We really don’t have high ambitions. Keep making music, having fun making it, and connect with people who want to listen to us.
