Bands | Neuman
Neuman is a folk rock band from Murcia with hints of post-punk style. With a touch of melancholy, their melodies are wrapped by only a piano, a guitar and drums. Extended themes where the intermediate and final parts of the composition always acquired more weight than the voice. The voice, warm and sensitive runs through a frame of emotions that are transmitted by a descriptive language that moves you on every note, every minute.

Interview with Neuman
1. How did the band begin?
(Read the band bio on this apge to kwno more about their beginnings ).
2. How would you define the sound of the band?
3. Talk us about your last work.
It has been recorded like the old techniques of recording discs 40 years ago, almost live, to keep the emotional aspect intact as in its compossition.
4. How are your concerts? What can we find there that we wont find on your studio records?
It can be seen as a "roller coaster", from an
acoustic sound and a whispering voice to a authentic madness unleashed sounds. A loyal like in the record studio.
(Read our article of Neuman gig Day of the Heineken Music Festival 2011).
5. What do you think about the music industry and what do you think is your place within it?
I see a fashion musical archetype which we respect and share. We are in a privileged position in the current music scen. We also get feed from the people who begin to follow outside our country.
