Music: New Band: Electro dark-rock: Normoria

I recently met a philosophical young man. He asked a hard question. The question was: “What is best in life? Music, Anime, or games?” I, of course, placed a tally for “anime.” Why? Anime incorporates music into every show. As soon as that intro starts, you get a feeling like you are home. Feeling like your home in a comfortable place with just your auditory senses is very special – not all music is created equal. There is a new band that makes me feel like I’m home, they are, Normoria.

Normoria is an American/Swedish Electro dark-rock band founded in 2016 by Angel Moonshine. The band is composed of two Americans and two Swedish friends that have come together to bring you a big blend of dark styles, and electrifying music for the soul. Angel Moonshine is the band’s founder and vocalist. The bandmates have been in the electro and goth scene for many years – they know what they like & what audiences will like; the best part is – they are all beautiful and talented. I look forward to seeing them live once they start touring. Check out the interview Angel kindly granted me, then follow the links to hear Normoria for free!

Ruth:

How did the idea for the band form?

Angel:

I always wanted to do something in this music genre. So after moving to Sweden a little over two years ago and getting tired of playing in symphonic metal bands, I finally decided in 2016 that it was time to do something fun and pursue my other love, which is dark electro music.

Ruth:

How did you meet?

Angel:

Our guitarist Gustav and I (Angel) are actually married. I brought up the idea I had with some friends, which included Simon (backing vocalist) and he was immediately interested in joining. Then he introduced us to Johan (bassist) who quickly jumped on the (band) wagon. We all have things in common and essentially the band formed from a circle of friends, so we try to keep a “friends hanging out” atmosphere.

Ruth:

Where do you draw inspiration?

Angel:

Inspiration for me can come from all sorts of places and experiences, just life in general. That’s what I get inspired by when writing lyrics or music. Although with the actual music it can vary because sometimes you don’t have to look for it, it just comes like a flash of lightning even if you are asleep.

Ruth:

When will your EP be released?

Angel:

We are working on it right now and if everything goes as planned we are expecting to release it by the end of October.

Ruth:

How do your songs come together?

Angel:

I wanted the music to be more exploratory and mix different styles and sounds and make it into something more versatile instead of sticking completely to one style. That’s exactly what I found in Jim Zero’s music who is a multi talented friend I worked with in the past. He wrote some of our songs and allowed me to add the necessary changes, melodies and lyrics to the music in order to finish them. I like working with different musicians and getting inspired by them. And at the moment I’m also working on more music with another talented friend and producer as well. I’ll talk more about it when we are done with all the music.

Ruth:

Do you want to be signed, considering that there are artists that are very successful and unsigned?

Angel:

We are not seeking to be signed, but we are always open to any offers from record companies.

Ruth:

What is your long-term goal?

Angel:

Our long term goal as a band is to write fun and inspiring music, play awesome shows (big and small) hopefully in different countries, and have fun doing it all.
