Trojan: we are our own backwater when we appear on this stage

 Trojan: we are our own backwater when we appear on this stage


In the first performance of Le Xia, the Trojan band returned to the publics attention with a song the king of the old city, which revived the memory of this underground king of rock and roll. Later, the adaptation of later added a bit of splendor and blazing to the original frustration and desolation of the song, which triggered the whole chorus. In an exclusive interview with Netease Entertainment, talking about the experience of participating in the program, Muma, the lead singer, said that its much more exciting and nervous than expected, its impossible to say that theres no pressure. In addition, its in the competition, so we hope to do well. In fact, we dont know what the final result is. So there will be a little uneasiness on this. There will always be a wrestling mentality between the two poles. I think its fun. If I dont participate, I may not have this feeling in my life.

Trojan horses adaptation of later won praise

Among the bands, the style of Trojan horse is unique. Many other bands will also regard them as idols and benchmarks. And in their own minds, young bands also let them enjoy. In the face of some new forces born in the 90s and even after the 00s, the Trojan horse thinks very good because the development of the times is always dominated by the latecomers. In addition, I also think that in the music world, many great works happen in the back, which is our attitude towards the future. The past is always a classic. It has become history. Maybe we focus on the future. We have our own future. We are on this stage now, we are our own backwater.

The Trojan horse, which has been established for more than 20 years, envies the current environment in which young people play the band. You can focus on music development without being subject to economic pressure. But looking back on their experience along the way, we can only use too difficult to describe. When we first started to play band, we didnt know what the studio was like. We had never seen the performance of a big foreign band that we liked. Therefore, we had to be a little bit more closed than now. There was no such information and no support. In addition, there were no band companies, no brokers and no stage in the industry There was no livehouse. So the times are still developing and the industry is getting better and better.

In the program, Muma has a very impressive sentence, talent is not a diamond, heart is a diamond. When asked how to understand this sentence, he explained: for example, its like a person walking on the road with a bag on his back. In order to be more secure, he constantly goes to pick up gold, diamonds, silver tickets, and then his ID card, drivers license and room book. This thing is carried forward in the bag, the bigger the thing, the heavier the burden. But when one day, he really lost (these things), was robbed by robbers, or you lost, you become yourself. In fact, your heart is diamond and wealth. Your heart is the wealth among all wealth. I dont think its wealth to be taken away or lost. What you cant lose, including your bad habits, is wealth.

Talking about the changes in music concepts over the years, they think that the most constant thing they have is the image, the picture and the breath. Breath is the most important thing in a band. Every band has its own unique flavor. When he stood on the stage, when his temperament came out, the breath was irreplaceable and unique. For the band, this breath, this fan, the gene hidden in the music, is the most important

They are also honest that their music has been more or less affected by the market these years, but this change can be divided into two kinds: positive changes are absolutely irresistible to us. But relatively negative changes may need to be controlled. For example, there are some dissatisfaction and deficiencies in the future, the past and the present on this stage. We cant get involved in them. We still have to find ways to solve them.

As long as it happens, its not too late. As long as anything develops slowly, its not too late to be a stagnant pool.
