awesome band + first headline gig + blogger = collaboration
I basically just got back from my favourite city, Berlin.
Since the interview we did last month went absolutely well and we all had a good time working together, we decided to collaborate once again.
This time we wanted to film a documentary of them getting ready for the show.
Before I'm going to show you that, I wanted to share some photographs and my personal impressions with you.
Music videos are strange things.
At least that's the only options I've ever experienced while watching videos.
The 'Get To Know' features are back!
For those of you who are new to the game - this is some kind of a basic interview.
The questions are really simple, and basic, and help the artists to introduce themselves to you, the wonderful readers.
Today Plastic Barricades from London take the mic!
There is so much talent on this planet - especially in the music business.
But you know what's the problem?
The charts always seem to feature the same artists and it's so hard for indie musicians to make it these days.
But luckily house in the sand is always excited to show case these absolutely talented people.
Ciaran Lavery is a singer/songwriter from Aghagallon, Ireland.
His music is passionate, expresses all different states of heartache and could be classified as alt-folk.
This time I want to put the spotlight on six brilliant rock bands which asked me to write about them.
I always try to be open for every genre and I don't think you can be happy by just listening to one single genre. At least I couldn't.
But I admit, rock music has been with me for years and I really got a thing for raw guitar riffs, marching drum beats and basslines and expressive vocals.
Personally, I absolutely enjoy each and every single song you'll find in the post, so I'm really asking you to take some time to listen.
Genre: Electronic rock
Release: 13th May 2014
hits rating: 7,5/10
Most of the artists who send me an email ask for reviews.
That's a fact.
Since I like to keep things lively on the blog I don't post review after review (even though I could).
But today I'd like to share my thoughts on an electronic rock album with you.
We can share the music.
As I'm writing this article I'm sitting in my room in a super small town somewhere in the South of Germany.
My blog statistics tell me that my readers are from the UK, the US, China, Italy, Japan and a lot more countries.

Working with absolutely talented people is what I do basically every day.
It sometimes takes a while and I really have to take some time to go through their music and listen to what those musicians do, but then I just realize what absolute blessing this job is.
Quinn Archer is no exception when it comes to incredibly talented people.
She had me from the first note I heard her sing and well, now here's our interview.
Quinn Archer is a British born singer/songwriter who now resides in Los Angeles, US.
Her sound blends all kinds of genres together; the slightly gothic touch is complimented by her strong, souly and dark voice. Pop and rock elements give a lot of grip to the songs and let them sound more lively.
In the interview Quinn talks about getting into music, living in Los Angeles, performing on the same line up along with Bon Jovi and Taylor Swift and a lot more.
Either way: I hope you enjoy!
But it's also a bit hard to plan solo features for about 50 artists/bands. It would take 100 days to blog all of them since I blog every other day.
You don't need to be a math genius to figure out that it's just way too long to let people wait to finally appear on your blog.
When I first started producing interviews I wanted to have one question I ask every single band/artist I would ever interview.
It says a lot about the artists.
First of all - how is April already over? It's May now and that's crazy. But exciting. I can almost smell Summer! :)
