Slime Girls


Please tell our readers who you are and what you do?


I'm Pedro Silva, and for the past 5 years I've gone by Slime Girls. I make weird music for weird people.



How would you describe your style and genre?


The music I write is pretty varied and all over the place… I get bored easily in terms of what I want to write. But most of it falls into the realm of bittersweet summer memory, instrumental laptop pop.
I'm very particular about sound palettes and I tend to favor sounds that sound a little raw or, in other words "bad" and low quality. So most of my music is made with the type of instruments you might here in a PS1 or N64 game, complimented with guitar and other organic instruments, sometimes vocals. I like variation and too many things going on at once, both texture-wise and melodically.




Who are your biggest influences and idols … and why? Do you have any idols? Are you a super fan of anyone? (Dead or alive, musician or non-musician)


I tend to take inspiration from a lot of different mediums and sources in terms of my music, everything goes into my creative process. Some long standing influences to what I do with Slime Girls have been the bands Bomb The Music Industry!, Perfume, and the denpa music genre. My personal hero is Nemu Yumemi from the group dempagumi.inc.




What´s new right now? What should our readers know about that is coming up from you?


I'm currently working on the soundtracks to two independent video games right now. OMORI, a psychological horror RPG by OMOCAT, and Ooblets, a sort of Harvest Moon meets Pokemon and Animal Crossing low poly game being published by DoubleFine, I'm very excited for these projects!

What was the biggest mistake you made when you started making music and what would be the number one tip you could give to a newcomer musician?


It's easy not to think long term or about the bigger repercussions down the line regarding your music or how you present yourself. Whether that's your name, time spent on your songs, etc etc a million things. So I think it's good to spend a little more time and gain a better perspective other than your own on those things.

But at the same time, my biggest piece of advice is to not sit on stuff for too long. Just release music, write it and put it out there. You're going to learn so much more that way. Don't sit around and wait until you think you're "good enough".

How do you get gigs? Can you share any tips?
Honestly, a good portion of my favorite gigs have been DIY gigs. Put on shows wherever you can, get involved with friends and other musicians and make something great happen. Most DIY gigs in my experience have paid way more as well and have less cumbersome rules, and tend to be All Ages, which is important. I think as a musician you should be able to handle yourself and put on a great show at both a house show and a sold out massive venue. Both are fun for their own reasons, and both have their own problems.
