Q: You guys recently signed with 80/20 Records, how is that going?
Matthew: It’s been a really good learning experience
Chelsey: They are very helpful and we are very good friends with Zero Zero and Captain Squeegee, so it’s nice to be on the same team
Robert: It’s nice to have more brains thinking about your band. Like what you should do, where you should go next, what you shouldn’t do because the four of us can’t really make all of the decisions.
Chelsey: Yeah, you can get really self-obsessed I think and you’re like “everything sucks” or “everything rules” and it’s usually somewhere in between.
Q: How was the response to your first EP (the Fairy Bones EP)?
Chelsey: It has gone really well. The response has been really good and the Phoenix Newtimes picked Like Like as one of the best things they’ve heard in 2013. Everyone really like that song. It’s gone much better than I could have ever anticipated. We were looking for someone to record with and everyone was freaking out about Bob Hoag. So I went and met him and his energy is awesome, he is just really cool. We did the record with him and it was insane, I cried when I first heard one of the songs.
Q: So, now you are working on a full-length album called Dramabot, tell us about that.
Chelsey: We don’t know what we’re doing because we’ve never released a full-length before and there are different opinions on whether or not a full-length is even relevant anymore, but I have always wanted to do one. We want to do something different though, we don’t just want to release an album and that’s it. We have a website (dramabot.org) and an Instagram (dramabot14) just for this album and we might do some interactive stuff to make it different. The imagery behind it is like retro-futurism, so the images are a little creepy and weird. We have a lot of art-things going on.
Robert: We just started the boneshaus Instagram as well (@Boneshausart).
