Adalbert: While I think about Miranda Cartel’s inspirations not only dark independent electronics, but also more synth-electro tunes like Marsheaux, comes up to my mind. Which were your direct inspirations?
Arachna: It’s hard to tell which of the groups which I listen to had the most spectacular inspirations. Among the groups which I was listenening to during the time I was preparing this EP were Aesthetic Perfection, Ashbury Heights, Zombie Girl, Covenant, and many many more and I think that the final result is caused by this mix.
Adalbert: Any ideas to make Miranda Cartel a live act?
Arachna: I had some plans for live shows. I will put information on Miranda’s facebook as soon as it will be confirmed.
Adalbert: There are 5 regular tracks on your new “Divert” LP. It’s hard to say which is the best, my favourite are “Divert”, “Leviathan” and “Fake my fiction”. And yours?
Arachna: It’s hard to tell, every track is important in particular way, so I can’t decide which is my favourite. Maybe “Fake My Fiction” is in some way very special, because I recorded vocals at home, on my own. Other vocals were recorded at studio and with this last track I decided to experiment. While home-recording you are alone and you can put into you’re your vocals expressions different emotions and feelings. Personally, I think that final results is really good and this experiment was a good idea.
Adalbert: The final question is… what’s next? Any plans for the future? Shall we expect any full length album?
Arachna: This month (December) the video for „Going Down” will be released, I had some plans for remixes and yes, full album is my next target. And of course – plans for live shows. 2016 will be both – full of work and activity.
