Quarantine videos, Green Day and hitting the studio we want More! More!
HI THERE THANKS FOR ANSWERING SOME QUESTIONS FOR US.
TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOUR NEW VIDEO
We definitely had a challenge making this video with the Coronavirus really limiting our options. That being said, we wanted to create something that felt unifying in a very divisive time. In the end, we decided that everyone loves blasting music on a road trip. So that’s where the idea came from.
WHAT RECORD CHANGED YOUR LIFE AND WHY?
Green Day’s “Dookie” was huge for me. I was in fifth grade and that was the first album that I bought with my own money. I can remember feeling like ‘this is my music’. It was the first time, that I started listening to stuff that wasn’t my parents’, that was different from stuff I had heard before. From that point I really got into punk rock and just fell in love with the rebellion and energy of the music
DO YOU HAVE A FAVORITE MUSIC VIDEO FILMED BY YOUR BAND OR ANOTHER ARTIST?
Ok Go has the funniest music videos in general. I wish we had that kind of creativity those guys are hilarious.
WHAT WOULD WE FIND YOU DOING WHEN YOU'RE NOT MAKING MUSIC?
I do a lot of writing in general. I’m definitely into making short films or writing scripts for full length features. Recently Thomas and I wrote a kid’s book about a pig escaping a farm. It’s pretty awesome actually.
DO YOU GET NERVOUS PERFORMING LIVE, IF SO HOW DO YOU DEAL WITH THAT?
Yeah there are always a few jitters before a show, no matter how many times I have done it. I actually remember when I was a kid, my Dad telling me that it is ‘good to be nervous’ because it means you care about something and will do well at it. I don’t know if that’s even true or not, but I have a found that as soon as that first song starts, the nerves go away and it’s just fun after that.
HOW DID YOU FORM THE BAND?
Dan (bass) and I (Guitar) work together. We both realized that we love playing live music, so instead of actually doing our jobs, we started writing songs. Pretty soon after we formed More! More! And got our first gig. The rest is a love story.
HOW DO YOU WRITE? - DO YOU HAVE A KEY SONGWRITER OR DO YOU ALL WORK TOGETHER?
Dan and Thomas do most of the song writing. We generally will start with a song idea and then flesh it out with the two of us first. In general Thomas really shines with melody and music, where Dan shines at writing lyrics and coming up with new parts to songs.
WHAT INSPIRES YOU?
Struggle. I think the bad days are the ones that generally lead to the most creativity. A lot of the best art comes from pain.
WHAT IS NEXT?
We are hitting there studio again! We found an awesome producer and are recording a new single in a couple of weeks. Can’t wait! The song is called “It Doesn’t Matter” and we are really excited about it.
