Hi Haale & Matt, how the devil are you today?
How would you describe your music to people who have not heard you before?
It’s super percussive with interlocking electric guitar riffs and layered vocals. As you said in your review, and others writers have echoed, it's hard to pin down bands that we sound like. There are strains of TV on the Radio, Tinariwen, Blonde Redhead, PJ Harvey, Page & Plant in the music, but there's something new happening here.
Matt, who are your drumming influences - Billy Cobham, Michael Shrieve & or Neil Peart by any chance?
They are all great drummers for sure. All powerhouse, technically great players but also with a lot of deep groove. Of the three, I have checked Billy Cobham out the most. Another great drummer is Narada Michael Walden – the stuff with Mahavishnu on “Visions of the Emerald Beyond” is classic.
But since I play a hyrid set with a lot of percussion, I also really like Zakir Hussain, Jamey Haddad, and Nana Vasconcelos, among others.
