After establishing themselves with their eponymous debut album last year, Norwegian outfit Temperature Falls have now returned with their eagerly-awaited follow-up 'I Want To Go Where You Go'.
Channeling a mix of alt-rock and trip-hop influences for the release, 'I Want To Go Where You Go' sees them return in stunning style. Filled with a rich and textured atmosphere, sweeping direction, and some soaring vocals from frontwoman Camilla, this new full-length is a fine return to form.
So with the new album available now, we sat down with Camilla to find out more about her background and what has inspired her most over the years.
What was the first instrument you fell in love with?
For me it was definitely the guitar. My dad has always been really good on the guitar and I remember I was so fascinated when he was playing. Every night I want to bed he had a guitar concert for me. This from when I was born til I probably moved out.
What has been the most prominent inspiration behind your music so far?
My inspiration must be that the music makes me feel good! Makes your mind kind off disappear from the day to day life. It also make me dream and feel. It’s amazing how powerful music is, and I wanted to do the same. Create music that can make other people feel the as I do!
What kind of music did you love as a teenager?
As a teenager? Oh my. This was probably the first time I discovered that it was other music out there than Britney Spears. I discovered Metallica and I became a huge fan of them for years!
What inspires you to make music?
My inspiration must be thy the music makes me feel good! Makes your mind kind off diapers for the day to day life. It also make me dream and feel. It’s amazing how powerful the music is, and I wanted to do the same. Create music that can make other people feel the as I do!
Who are your favourite artists you have found yourself listening to at the moment?
Ian discovered Phoebe Bridgers for a few months ago, and we absolutely became big fans of her music. Especially motion sickness. I think we been listening to it a thousand times. I like her as an artist as well, kind off different than anyone else. That is something I always like in artists, who just are them self and making the music they want to make.
How many of your songs have you written about people in your life?
I think almost every song we have is inspired from our own life and people we know. It’s not always a exact story, but inspiration from loads of situations in our life. We both are sentimental human beings and feel high on happiness but also very low when something bad happens. But I think that is a good quality when you can transfer that into music.
What has been the funniest moment in your career so far?
This has to be Ians Story - in his last band ‘Number One Son’ he was playing at Rock City in Nottingham . the dressing rooms backstage where in a basement or ‘Labyrinth’ as he described it :) he got lost on the way to the stage - ended up in a boiler room, couldn’t find the rest of the band - a true ‘Spinal Tap’ moment!
If you could open a show for anyone in the world, who would it be?
That is so difficult!! it would have to be a band we both adore - special mention to The Kills but i think we would have to go for Sylvan Esso.
If you weren’t a musician, what other path do you think you might have taken?
Oh. That is a difficult one. I really don’t know. But what I do know and what I been learning after life experience is that I would do something that I love to do. Because life is really to short to just do stuff you hate. I would have used more time to figure out what would make me happy.
And what is the best piece of advice you have received as a musician?
The best peace of advice must be to accept that you have bad days where you can’t get anything done or what you do is just not good enough. That happens. The clue is to not give up and have people around that can motivate you and keep you going! The most important if you want to fallow your dreams is to never give up. Motion and good and honest people is important in your life to reach that goal. And remember. Not everyone is going to like your music, because music is very personal for every single one of us! Just keep going and create what you really want to create!
