Asian Dan Interview: Chinese Christmas Cards

1. Who is Chinese Christmas Cards?

Chinese Christmas Cards is young band from Barcelona that was created over a year ago and whose members are Mario GutiƩrrez and Joan Sala. We met at school and fact that we shared musical interests, that Mario plays the guitar and Joan the piano was what made us bring this project together, in which song writting is combined with synthesizers and other electronic sounds.

2. What are your influences?

It is quite hard to talk about a direct influence, we think that it is all the music that we have listened to over the years that has made us do what we are doing, and it goes from the music from the 80’s, the 90’s pop all the way to the new current electronic trends. If something has really influenced us while componing that would be the songs our mothers sang in the shower, the sound of the construction work we hear nextdoor to where we produce, and the christmas cards, if possible chinese ones.

3. Are either of you Chinese? Is Christmas your favorite holiday?

Hahahahaha! The truth is no, neither of us is Chinese, but it all goes back to the school years when everybody called Joan “Chino”, which in Spanish means Chinese, because of the shape of his eyes.

Christmas is nice and is cool basically because of the days off school and the presents, but then it is too cold. If we could wear flipflops and shorts and eat ice cream in Winter then it would be our favourite holiday.
