Check out this interview with one of our bands to watch this year, Moaning.

S] How are you guys?

I’m good! Excited that we announced our new record.

S] What thoughts and feelings inspired ‘Ego’?

I want to be a better person and be more self aware. I was thinking about how important it is to check yourself and be grateful. I think it’s interesting that the ego can make you feel like you’re the best and the worst at the same time.┬áIt’s easy to be caught up in narcissistic crap. It’s important to focus on being a good person for the people around you. The song deals with those themes and is a reminder for me.

S] What are the biggest challenges you face as a band now?

Touring and being away from home can sometimes be hard. I don’t think people realize how difficult it is to not have your own bed and a stable routine. 

S] What motivates you outside of music – think movies, people and places for example?

My friends are inspiring. I work in animation and a lot of my friends are artists. It’s inspiring to see different forms of artists make work and be passionate.

S] How do you define success as a band?

Success is relative. I’ve never loved extremely mainstream music or art. I think we’re successful if we like what we are doing and are impacting even just one person in a positive way.

S] Have a great day, and thanks for your time!

Thank you!
