Interview with Sondag

#RoguePR #VIMH #Titans



RPR (VIMH): Hi guys, congrats on your new release “Titans”.

Sondag: Thanks guys! Really appreciate it!


RPR (VIMH): hat is the significance of naming a single Titans?

Sondag: “Titans” came up in a difficult moment for us all.

In these hard times we’ve seen that the social medias became (once again) a place where everyone poured out his fears and anger lead by a huge wave of misinformation.

The concept behind our last single lies upon these hard times, and when we say ”we are the titans of nothing”, we really mean that everyone seems to have the truth in their pockets, but reality is another thing.


RPR (VIMH): What do the lyrics talk about? Which are your major lyrics’ influences?

Sondag: As said, the lyrics of this single are focused on exposing the total lack of contents that the majority of web users shoot out on the social medias everyday.

I can’t actually say where our lyric influences come from, I guess they come in a very spontaneous way from the experience we live daily in our lives.


RPR (VIMH): Which are those elements that separate your new album from your previous albums?

Sondag: Well, we are only releasing singles since a year now. The 3 singles we already released as of now (Half, Trendsetter, Titans) a really different from each other: from the lyrics to the soundscapes, we always try to give our best in order to let the track sounds “unique” in it’s own way.


RPR (VIMH): How would you characterize “Titans” and what are your expectations from the new single?

Sondag: Titans is out since a month now, and we are really happy with the feedbacks we are receiving about it! This song is something that really tells how we feel right now in this specific time frame, so we really care about it.


RPR (VIMH): How did the cooperation with Manifest Records occur? How’s working with Barry and how much has he helped you on the whole?

Sondag: Barry, our man in Manifest Records, is the best thing that ever happened to us.

Since the day he showed interest into our music, he has always helped us with basically everything: from the promotion to all the aspects of the band management with his professional expertise.

Without him, things would be much harder for us.. I can tell you that!



RPR (VIMH): How’s the fans’ reactions been to the new songs on your live shows so far?

Sondag: Unfortunately we don’t do any live show since the whole pandemic thing started, but as for the streaming's we are doing pretty good compared to the past years!


RPR (VIMH): Do you prefer to be on the road or on the studio writing and recording?

Sondag: Well, in this particular moment there’s nothing we miss as much as touring around.

I mean, writing new music is something that we love of course.. but how do they say?

“when you can’t have something, you will be craving for it all the time”.. we really miss playing live show mate.


RPR (VIMH): How did you come up with the name “Søndag” initially?

Sondag: I must admit that I am very infatuated with Scandinavian languages, and therefore I took a cue from the Danish vocabulary for the band name: Søndag (Sunday).

The reference to the day of the week wants to create a parallel between the day of the week when the plug is disconnected from everyday life, and our music .. which (we hope) in its own way disconnects from the routine of the music we are used to listen.



RPR (VIMH): How would you describe your music style to someone that hasn’t heard of you before?

Sondag: Søndag’s sound can be described as groovy and Heavy: ”low-tuned rock”.

The most curious thing about our songs is that we use quite heavy tunings, in some riffs the guitars plays the same octave of the bass.

Above all, we always try to keep up the groovy riffs along with trippy atmospheres and catchy refrains!


RPR (VIMH): Which do you consider to be the best male & female vocalist in metal history?

Sondag: Tough question!

In my personal opinion: Chris Cornell and Anneke Van Giersbergen.


RPR (VIMH): Which is the record you wish you had written and why?

Sondag: Without hesitation: “Destroy Erase Improve” from Meshuggah.. it has shaped the modern metal scene for good, I wish it was written by me!


RPR (VIMH): Were you obliged to give just one album to extraterrestrials that would represent the whole human music, which album would it be and from which band/artist?

Sondag: Hahaha, whoa.. this is difficult!

I would go with something from the Beatles, maybe “Abbey Road”.


RPR (VIMH): If you had the chance to travel in time… where would you choose to go? To the past or the future and why?

Sondag: Past for sure!

I would love to see the Roman empire era, or the crusade one.. why? Don’t know mate, I’ve always loved to study these centuries.
