Band name:
DESPERFECTO

Date & location formed:
Formed in March 2013 in Concepción, Chile, South America.

Reason for forming:
We began playing just for fun. We met one day to hang out, we didn’t know how to play, but we had a place where we could rehearse for hours. That made us play a lot, create and record the songs for the demo.

Comenzamos a tocar por amistad, luego de juntarnos un día a pasar la tarde, no sabíamos tocar instrumentos, pero teníamos un lugar donde ensayar por horas, por lo que, en poco tiempo logramos hacer y grabar las canciones del demo.

Desperfecto

What are your lyrics about?
The demo lyrics are about everything we love and everything we hate. certain types of attitude that we don’t like, and the fear to give up. Our newest songs on the other hand are much more negative, we dedicated our time to talk about what we can’t stand.

Las letras del demo hablan de las cosas que nos gustan y las que odiamos, de actitudes humanas que no nos gustan, y del miedo que tenemos a renunciar a nuestras ideas. La nuevas canciones que hemos hecho son mucho mas negativas en sus letras, nos dedicamos a hablar mas de lo que detestamos.

How would you describe your sound?
Our songs sound like what we could do with our instruments, simple punk influenced by very honest bands like Irreparables or Las Tímidas. People say that we sound like Vice Squad, Ultimo Resorte, Cocadictos and the like, basically primitive punk, female fronted bands.

Nuestras canciones suenan a lo que podiamos hacer con nuestros instrumentos, punk sencillo, influenciado por bandas actuales muy honestas como Irreparables o Las Tímidas. La gente dice que sonamos a Vice Squad, Ultimo Resorte, Cocadictos, osea bandas de punk primitivo con voz femenina.

What’s in the future for this band?
This month we are recording four new songs for a split CD with another band called Rehusar. They are from Talca, Chile. We would like to record again in early 2015 and check what we could do with those songs. We have played in a couple of sorrounding cities, now we would like to travel to further places and continue playing as much as we can.

Este mes grabaremos cuatro canciones nuevas para un CD split con la banda REHUSAR, ellos son de Talca, Chile. Nos gustaría grabar algunas canciones mas en enero/febrero y ver que podemos hacer con aquella grabacion. Hemos tocado en varias ciudades cercanas a la nuestra, nos gustaría seguir viajando y tocando en nuestra ciudad tanto como podamos.
