My alter ego – interview with Miranda Cartel

Updated: 20 December, 2015 Created: 20 December, 2015 By:Adalbert Category: Interviews|News
Miranda Cartel is a synth pop/darkwave act which is a child of Arachna – composer and vocalist involved in Lilly of the Valley, polish synth/gothic duo which already released two LP’s. In Miranda Cartel she decided to leave the guitars which are very remarkable in her main band, and plunge herself into world of electronic  and more dance oriented rythms. What is common element of both projects is Arachna excellent vocal and great melodies, that will hardly get out of your head if you will give Miranda Cartel a try. Arachna agreed to answer our questions and unveiled few secrets of Miranda Cartel’s concept.

More info and player

Adalbert: Why you decided to start Miranda Cartel after many years of Lilly of the Valley’s activity?

Arachna: I think that many musicians and composers had the same moment in their life – while preparing some stuff you start to think about different ideas, different sounds and composition are coming to your mind and you have to decide what should be done with this “different” stuff.

Adalbert: Is it a side project or will it somehow replace LOTV’s activity?

Arachna: A side-project. It will not replace LOTV’s activity, but for now, for this particular moment, I feel the different wind in my wings and I think I should go with it. ;)

Miranda Cartel is oriented towards electronics only, not so ephemeral, not so lyrical as LOTV is

Adalbert: Is Miranda Cartel… just the same project as Lilly of the Valley – it’s just oriented towards electronics?

Arachna: Miranda Cartel is oriented towards electronics only and not so ephemeral, not so lyrical as LOTV is.

Adalbert: What’s the band name meaning? Is there any?

Arachna: Well…. Miranda Cartel is my alter ego. There is no hidden meaning :)

Adalbert: First thing that has striken me while I listened to “Divert” is  its very good sound and production. What was the role of Zowa Studio (directed by Zmorrha from Skon project) in this process?

Arachna: Zowa-Studio is responsible for mix and mastering, so the final EP’s sounds is his merit.
