Why Stian Summer?
Stian is the grown up person in me that does not want to grow up yet, and that just want to play pop music and not care about the more grown up issues one have.
Its fun and capricious, however still pretty deep in thoughts.
isn’t Stian Summer some 20-year-old?
yes or no, he’s in his twenties still, probably late 20′s early 30′s, but have experienced much more in life. You can’t run away from things that has happened to you , but you can choose to highlight certain sides of yourself at certain times.
and any men tend to stop growing up from 25 onwards, and that’s for the good and the bad.
Who do think will like the music?
Now Stian Summer is not some sort of a marketing ploy or something, he is an artist/singer that simply does his own thing. In the end it is his songs that should catch on, not some concept. The sound is pop/punk, pretty british, bit of Cure, but with many other references put into it.
Name 3 acts that has inspired Stian Summer.
i would like to think Bowie, Roxy Music and the Cure, but there could be many. mainly British 70′s and 80′s.
Do you listen to records a lot?
Actually not at all. Well it’s not say that I never listen, but it has just always been like that. I think when you work your music so much on a daily basis your ears gets tired and you simply have had enough. The good thing is of course that you don’t end up sounding like some other act out there. The bad is that you can get caught in some ‘out of fashion sound’ sometimes. It’s not that bad though.
Where is Stian Summer in 5 years time?
Still doing his thing i guess. All depends on how the songs gets received over time, but it is definitly not some craze that will last only a few months. It is a part of me that probably wont disappear soon, if ever. If you knew how many times I have been told off for not wanting to grow up…. it’s pretty true, but so what? who else to decide beside myself.
the Stian Summer project promotes a very British sound that is a combination of a whole lot of things coming out of London. It’s both pop and punk at the same time, and sounds somehow both old and new.
Stian Summer is an English Power-Pop project just about to hit the ground. It’s music for grown-ups who don’t really want to grow up… at least not just yet!
“As much as we all like records that grow on you and that you can listen to forever, it is great sometimes to listen to a song that is just full-on from start to finish….
and that is really what Stian Summer is about.
Silly Thing is the first single and promotes a very British sound that is a combination of a whole lot of things coming out of London. It’s both pop and punk at the same time, and sounds somehow both old and new.
With Stian, you’ll find glamour, although it’s also pretty deep with thoughts.
