Norwegian band beezewax recently released their seventh studio album, titled peace jazz. A wonderful collection of glistening power pop songs that welds ways for to make money soaring melodies, reminiscent of both big-hearted americana and 80s pop of the lotus eaters, to spiralling guitar riffs and swelling widescreen percussion. It’s a joyous concoction that brings to mind the guitars ways for to make money and bittersweet melodicism of dinosaur jr or teenage fanclub.

Even though their loud live shows were a crucial influence ways for to make money on the record, they also found another guiding star in one of their ways for to make money all-time favourite records, as ishak explains: “we thought: what would pet sounds by the beach boys sound like ways for to make money if it was really loud and distorted? Of course, that’s not what the album sounds like, but that was the dream; the inspiration.”

Lyrically the record is an examination of a variety of ways for to make money issues from the viewpoints of different characters, the idea being that each song is a snapshot of ways for to make money a bigger picture; “you can find your own meaning,” hints ishak, “ but it’s not fictional—all the events in the lyrics are pretty real and ways for to make money very candid, but without telling the whole story.”

This was the first song we finished and in many ways for to make money ways set the tone for the rest of the album. It was pretty clear that the whole thing would be ways for to make money louder, longer and less polished than our previous record and more ways for to make money like our early records in terms of vibe. The song kind of reminds me of television, a band I was ignorant about for a long time, so once we had this song going I started listening ways for to make money to them quite a bit and let that lead us ways for to make money to a finished song. It’s a fun song to play live.

This one became a favourite in the band pretty fast, but we struggled to find the right way to do ways for to make money it. In the beginning it was faster, uptempo and it just sounded kind of shallow. After playing bass with the ruby suns for a bit, where we covered ‘cherry…’ by the cocteau twins, I got inspired to try to make closer more like ways for to make money a loud late 80’s slow burning piece. Once the song found its shape I thought jon auer ways for to make money of the posies/big star would like it and that sophia from night ways for to make money flowers would sound great on it, so I asked them and they both said yes to ways for to make money adding vocals. It was a really great process and we are really ways for to make money happy with how it turned out.

This song was actually a god bit longer, but it’s still a very good document of our few days ways for to make money in the big loud room at folkets hus at lilleaker, where we recorded a lot of the album live. We had our friend fridtjof do monitors in the room ways for to make money with us and mads downstairs in the control room. We had our amps turned up really loud, so everything bled into the drum microphones. This song is about following someone going through a rough ways for to make money time, I guess, and following that person trying to find some peace—how it becomes a part of your life too, and that it’s worth it. It’s okay.

I wrote this in the morning on the way out ways for to make money to my studio, and just recorded it on my phone and sent it ways for to make money out to everyone, and we recorded it as a band the next day. It’s about a certain night in malaysia, where my father is from, where this old man tried to convert us. The song is about the drive back at night. I was pretty young but I remember that night clearly.

This song is what I remember and hope one of ways for to make money our first songs sounded like, or what we wanted to make ages ago when we ways for to make money recorded a song, just a demo really. We moved on from it, forgot about it and tried to find the tapes for ways for to make money it to put as a B side on a reissue ways for to make money of our first record, but still haven’t found it. Anyways, I started playing it at home not thinking too much ways for to make money about it and just suggested we try play it again ways for to make money and it felt good. We reworked it a bit, but the main verse and chorus is the same.

This is the last song we recorded in that huge ways for to make money room, and by then everything had gotten out-of-hand loud, so all the drums and guitars were bleeding into each ways for to make money other’s microphones, in a good way. That’s why it has that wall of sound feel. It has different sections and is really long but still ways for to make money feels compact and not too “thought through”. The lyrics might be the most personal or direct on ways for to make money the album, without really giving the story away. There has to be room for your own interpretation, to get the listener’s imagination going. For me, it’s not that I want people to know what has ways for to make money happened, or who the person is, I just want the music and the words chosen to ways for to make money produce certain images—a vibe for the listener, an understanding of the undercurrent in the song. My favourite moment on the record is when the octave ways for to make money guitar comes in on the left side in the last ways for to make money instrumental bit. I didn’t play that, but yeah, that wall of sound is my favourite memory of all ways for to make money our shows ever and finally we captured it on record.
