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.

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.

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.

After the program was broadcast, in addition to the discussion on music, they also gained more views from the audience. It also includes ridicule for the leading singers Wooden eyeliner. For this, Mu Ma laughs and says he does not mind. I have Eyeliner from the beginning, Trojan horse, old Trojan horse period I have smoky smokes, all kinds of explosions, what has happened, so fortunately, I feel very happy. He also joked that he might be the terminator of Liang Long if he went to make-up.

When asked about the phenomenon of more and more band members appearing on variety shows, Muma said: I think I can. But the most important part of the musician himself is still not lost. You can do something else, because it will give you a lot of experience. After this kind of experience, we can still turn it into the source and power of creation.

Do you feel late for variety show?

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