Instagram’da The Maccabees ile ilgili videoma gelen like üzerine kim ki bu ? Diye bakıp bir link sayesinde sitelerine girip sonrasında albümlerini dinleyip çok beğendiğim Wildcat Strike ile bir röportaj gerçekleştirdim. Kendilerini daha çok Indie – Rock’n Roll Band olarak tanımlıyorlar. 5 kişiden oluşan Salt Lake City (ABD)’li grubu yakından tanıyoruz şimdi.
Who is Wildcat Strike ? Who are Tony, Jake, Jordan, Will, Joe ? answered by Will
Our creative process is a little bit all over the map. Each of our songs has it’s own little story behind it and that’s probably what’s so fun about it. Entire songs have been built around one idea for a guitar or bass part and the lyrics have come as sort of a reaction to the song, and lots of parts have come directly from just noticing that something sounds cool while we are messing around. However, the main ingredient in most of our music is Tony. Aside from being a natural songwriting talent, he has been writing and performing music for years and has worked extremely hard to become good at it. Most of the time, Tony comes to us with an idea for a song that he’s been working with recently (Tony has a truly unique ability to express a lot of ideas very succinctly and since he’s been writing music for so long, he is able to write deeply personal lyrics/songs really quickly and naturally). We then get together in our practice space (Jordan’s basement) and mess around with all the moving parts of a song: structure, chord progressions, effects, etc..etc…etc… until we come to something we all like. We try to be honest with each other about if we like something or don’t like it and we are usually willing to give any idea a try. Why else does music exist?
We hope we get a chance to go to Istanbul! Thank you for the awesome interview!
