Here is our 4th post about One Spark Start: Berlin music creators. Today we have focussed on Berlin based three-piece band JYLDA. I talked to Gianna about their One Spark project and what they expect from taking part next week ...

50K MUSIC: Who are JYLDA? Please tell us a bit about the band.
Gianna: JYLDA consists of the three producers Gianna, Martin and Floris. Gianna writes the songs, sings and plays keys, Martin plays funky riffs and either elegiac or powerful melodies with his electric guitar and Floris triggers effects and creates crazy and atmospheric synth sounds.

50K MUSIC: Where do you come from (musically)?
Gianna: PJ Harvey, Kate Bush, Patti Smith, Billie Holiday, New Order, Maria Callas, Mazzy Star and Verdi. Also, everything that’s Pop without being annoying or boringly reproductive.

50K MUSIC: You've decided to apply for One Spark Berlin? Why?
Gianna: We think it’s an great opportunity to show live what our project is about and also to get to know other cool projects.

50K MUSIC: ... and what do you expect from taking part at this crowdfunding festival?
Gianna: Of course, it would be great to achieve our funding goal to be able to press our next record on vinyl. But first and and foremost, we are looking forward to showing our music to the crowd!

50K MUSIC: How do you prepare for One Spark?
Gianna: We take a deep breath, spread our arms, close our eyes. Then we breath out, push the arms down, straighten up and open the eyes again. On repeat.

50K MUSIC: And last one: anything you want your fans and future One Spark supporters to know?
Gianna: Hope to see you at our concerts!
