INHERENTLY LOST – interview
Introduce your band, and describe your latest release:
We have Mark who does heavy vocals and keys/synths, Noreen Who does the clean melodic vocals, Joe on the guitar, Drew on the bass, and me on the drums. Our latest release is a cover of Motley Crue’s “Red Hot” and our single Unraveling Sanity.
What’s the hardest part about being a band in this day and age?
Trying to build a fan base. A lot of people don’t go to local shows anymore and social media is so over saturated with band promoting themselves that the ads all just kind of blend together.
When did you realise that your project had the potential to be much more than just a fun idea?
As soon as I joined the band. There’s this essence that this band is just different. It’s not like everything else you hear in the local metal scene. When we go on stage, our sound sticks out. In a good way of course.
Tell us about your latest release, why should we check it out?
As far as original music “Unraveling Sanity” is the latest. The actual latest release as previously stated is “Red Hot” a Motley Crue cover. If you really want to see what I mean when I say there’s just something different about this band, listen to the original version of “Red Hot” and then take a listen to ours. You’ll see what I mean.
How does a song typically come together for you?
It usually starts with a riff and then slowly but surely it starts to become a song. It’s a pretty organic way of writing and I think that’s part of what makes our songs “different”
How would you describe your sound to an unfamiliar reader?
Think fast and heavy but also breaks off into melodic and symphonic moments.
What do you want listeners to take away from listening to your band?
I’m sure that answer would vary depending on the person you ask but for me it would be: Go crazy with what you do and have fun doing it. Be yourself and don’t concern yourself too much with being “weird” or “different”.
Where would you really like to tour that you haven’t done so yet, and why?
I would just like to tour in general. I’ve always wanted to be a musician by profession. Music is the number one solstice I have in this life and I would love to make it a full time thing.
How would you say that the sound of your band has progressed over the years?
It’s difficult for me to say because it hasn’t been that long. If I had to make some sort of statement on the matter probably that the songs groove better now, the writing is more mature.
How excited are you for 2024,and what can fans expect from you?
I’m really excited for us to start playing songs live from the upcoming album “Art of Corruption” there’s some seriously killer songs on that album and I can’t wait to share it with the world and on the local stage.
