When we first started, we played a gig where only three people showed up, and two songs in our amp blew up. We agreed that it was nice to get the "worst gig" out of the way early in our career.
We are alternative hip-hop, or alt hip-hop for short. We follow the lyrical structure of hip-hop but with a punk/rock kind of attitude. People have said that we are somewhere in between Rage Against the Machine, Beastie Boys and Nine Inch Nails. Our fans always tell us they have a hard time describing our sound to their friends, which is pretty neat. Originality in the music is hard to come by.
James Dean in Live Fast, Die Young.
Inaudible lyrics in today's rap music aka "mumble raps."
Making food at home. Getting excited about cooking is definitely unexpected.
Any number of current mainstream rap records that are catchy yet painfully simple. A repetitive track that just gets stuck in your head for two to three days at a time. Love/hate thing for sure.
Tyrannosaurus rex or a professional ice cream taster.
There's a certain feeling that comes with creating music. It's very rewarding and also very challenging.
“Zombie Tundra.” The song was written about 14 years ago when Brod and I first started making music together. Our drummer Joe actually wrote the drum part as a fan for fun way before he joined the band. Years later, it's one of our most popular songs during the live shows.
Gorillaz, a band that blends different types of genres together into their own unique style. We really like hybrid sound/style bands in general and definitely identify as one ourselves.
Our friends know everything. We are quite shameless.
“Inside Out” by Eve 6. Such an iconic track that for us captures that '90s spirit.
Total Recall. Amazing '90s cover band that plays all the memorable songs from our teen years, and they play them well.
Taylor Perry Gomez.
Bring back Tupac and Biggie so we can make an album with them called Reanimation Collaboration.
