Pettersson is a very young Austrian trio that today gives birth to his first work called “Rift And Seam” (I.Corrupt.Records, Miss The Stars, My Name Is Jonas, Structures//Agony, One Wild Collective, Hardcore 4 Losers, Time As A Color, Samegrey Records, Longrail Records, Upwind Productions, and Krimskramz): we listened to its preview: eight tracks reminding the most melancholic atmospheres by Pianos Become The Teeth, Envy, Suis La Lune, I Viva Belgrado, Touche Amore, among others. We met them three to have a chat.
Who the hell is Pettersson?
Pettersson is three friends making sad music in Vienna. In case you wonder: Yes, the name is a reference to “Pettersson and Findus”.
Rift And Seam is drenched of several atmospheres but, in the end, the ultimate goal seems “fixing up things”. Isn’t it?
If there is an ultimate goal for us, it would be to make sense of things, and learning how to cope. We don’t have any idea of how to fix anything, though.
A lot of influences are detectable in your work, maybe it could be reductive to say just emo/screamo, sometimes it even sounds black metal.
Thank you! We only wear corpsepaint for band practice though. #666
Is it good to play in Austria?
There are only few people taking part in something like an alternative hardcore-scene but they are doing an amazing job. From the moment we played our first show we felt very embedded in this nice little bubble. Props to My Name Is Jonas, Pylon Network, Hardcore For The Losers, Generation Noir and lil Sebastian Memorial Booking.
Neverending tour: bring with you only a CD, a book and a dream.
