Feature: A Copy For Collapse (24/08/15)

A Copy For Collapse, are an Italian electronic duo, comprised of Daniele Raguso and Aria Myrskya. They've collaborated with Candian-Ukranian dream pop duo, Ummagma, as well as Aerofall, Redrum Alone, Leland, and Ecole du Ciel. They've shared stages with Slow Magic, Darren Price, Etienne de Crecy and The KVB. The duo released their debut album, 'The Last Dreams of Earth' in 2013 and the 'Lucid Dream' EP in 2014; this year they're back with their second full-length LP 'Waiting For'; which is now available digitally and on vinyl. Here's a Q&A with Daniele... 

General Questions:

1. How old were you when you started getting involved in music and how?
I started to play piano when I was very young (six years old); in my family, my brother and my sister are pianists, so music was always in the air. 

2. What is the most inspiring musical performance you've ever seen?
I remember The Cure live in Rome (2002); I like Robert Smith and his energy. 

3. Who have you been listening to lately?
Witch-house and trap music and artists like Purity Ring or Dillon Francis. 

3 Qs for A Copy For Collapse:

1. Who would your dream collaboration be with and why?
Probably Grimes, she's great for her capacity to mix dream-pop/indie music with pop attitude. And I like her voice. 

2. What process did you go through creating 'Grey Sunday' and how did it differ from the rest of 'Waiting For'?
I wrote 'Grey Sunday' during a (grey) Sunday afternoon. At first, I wasn't convinced to add the song to 'Waiting For' cause it's very different from the rest of the album (more chill-wave and dreamy orientated). 'Grey Sunday' is the darkest song of album and it represents the real attitude by ACFC. 

3. Which song do you like play live most and why?
'Alone', which is the most dance-orientated song. It's a pleasure to see public dancing :)

Random Q:

Where in the world would you most like to visit and why?
I was two times in USA some years ago and I like them. I'm falling in love with San Francisco, where I'll probably plan to have a gig. 

'Waiting For' Review:
The title track opens the LP well, slowly building and becoming a catchy electronic track. The LP follows, with a perfect mix of chill wave, electro, synth pop and nuwave, creating a wonderful combination leading to dreamy, ethereal brilliance. 'Dusk' and 'Triangle' are two of my favourite tracks from this release, and of course the lead single 'Grey Sunday', which closes the LP on a catchy, and upbeat tone, however it holds a haunting and intense underline, highlighting the talent behind the layers...
