Up & Coming Bands | Powernap


Earlier this year, Montreal band, Powernap released their debut EP Oreosmith. The band are a side project of The Saint Catherines singer Hugo Mudie who also provides the vocals for Powernap. Oreosmith is a collection of fast paced punk rock songs that never run low on energy while also attaining engaging and uplifting riffs. We asked Hugo a few questions about Oreosmith and all it has to offer...

WHERE ARE YOU FROM?
I’m from Montreal. 

HOW DID YOUR BAND FORM?
We wanted to play songs together to have a reason to see each other.

DESCRIBE YOUR SOUND IN FIVE WORDS FOR SOMEONE WHO MIGHT NOT HAVE HEARD YOUR MUSIC BEFORE
veggie dogs with hot peppers.

YOU RECENTLY RELEASED YOUR NEW EP 'OREOSMITH', TELL US A BIT ABOUT IT...
It’s our first 6 songs. The artwork is orange and blue. If you put it in a record playing device it plays the music that we recorded. It sounds nothing like this.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE SONG FROM OREOSMITH AND WHY? 
Live Slow, Die Whenever. 'Cause it’s a good advice.

IF YOU COULD TOUR ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD WHERE WOULD IT BE?
Jama├»ca, I’d love to smoke weed there, even though I don’t smoke weed here.

DO YOU PREFER RECORDING OR PLAYING LIVE?
Recording, the thing with playing live is that it involves speaking with other bands about gear and booking agents which I don’t care about, and also, you have to go to bed late. I don’t like that either. I can record during the day and not talk about much, cuz I’m too busy signing and faking that I need to rest my voice when I’m not signing.


WHAT ARE YOUR TOP FIVE FAVOURITE ALBUMS AT THE MOMENT?
1989 by Taylor Swift,  Yours To Keep de Albert Hammond Jr, Ariane ZIta EP, Acidrap by Chance The Rapper,  Bloom by Beach House.

Oreosmith is out now via Asian Man / Klownhouse Recordz. Listen to it in full below:
