What can your audience expect from your upcoming performance at The Echo?
A short set. Fast and short. We always leave you wanting more. Don't complain.
How would you compare your first full-length CD/LP It’s The Evil, with your second release, Sorry?
It's The Evil is four people trying to write songs together where as Sorry is four people who have figured out how to write songs together. This is the only way I can really describe it. But Sorry is sugary and I thought it was a pop record. Clearly, other people did not. Our new record will be more aggressive and melodic. We're never satisfied.
What is the most challenging part of the recording process?
I really like recording. Jesse Gander, who has done both our albums, is kind of the reason I know how to make effective harmonies and that the vocals are actually challenged on Sorry. He's a great producer and engineer and he makes everything clear and loud. Our songs are very busy so everything has to be clear, no muddiness. It doesn't work with our writing and Jesse knows how to do that. Plus, he taught me how to do all these dorky vocal warm ups, which now I totally swear by when it comes to the studio.
Do you feel the group’s collaborative sound has progressed between albums?
Very much so. We know one another now. That is what spending 24 hours a day with the same 3 people will do that to you. You become twisted. You become crazy and in tune. Milk Music are moving to Joshua Tree together to drop acid and live in the desert and write music. Being in a band turns you into a crazy person. Who else would think that is a good idea besides bandmates who have just crossed to the other side, you know?
If you could back to when you were recording It’s The Evil and give yourself one piece of advice, what would it be?
"Don't screech like that. Just sing. You can project without screeching." It's hard for me to listen to It's The Evil. Honestly, some of those songs. "Wild Failure" is a good song. That's the only song on that record that I think should have been on Sorry. It was the last song we wrote for IT's The Evil and led the direction of further song writing.
Who are three groups/musicians that have inspired/influenced you?
Paul Westerberg, St. Dad, The Brat
A lot of times artists are asked what’s next, instead, what are you savoring most right now?
I love this question. I'm savouring this moment right now. I'm sitting in my house, working, in my shitty pajamas. This will be over for the next 2 months. I'm savouring this because pretty soon I'll be on tour jammed in a motel with my 3 bandmates, no privacy, no cooking channel. No dumb almond milk, flax seeds and granola. You know? The grass is always greener.
