KOPPS is a fantastic band, and they’re fronted by the amazing Patricia Patron. She’s the kind of fiery front woman that we aspire to be in our minds. She’s also a licensed therapist which makes her even cooler. We talked to her about mental health, their new song “Hott” and working with Joywave.
The other day I was at a show with my friend and this guy across from me took an interest in my opinions on music. By “took an interest” I mean he decided to tell me how everything I was saying was stupid and I obviously didn’t know what I was talking about, but since he was older and man he understood ~the industry~ way more than little me. Now, here at The New Nine, we believe that everyone’s opinions on music are valid, but we especially like to stand up for young women because so few music publications do.
Hangout Fest kicked my butt this year, but between all the walking and applying sunscreen, I got to sit for a second and ask The Suffers some questions about life, touring, and what it’s like being a band from Houston, Texas.
Ronnie Heart has been a sort of fascination of mine, I used to work in Dallas and I’d see him almost everywhere. After following him on Instagram I became fascinated by his eclectic style and incredible live performances.
Why Don’t We is an internet sensation, their video “Taking You” already has over 200,000 views and is growing fast. Their “Only The Beginning” EP hit #15 on Billboard’s Heatseeker Albums Chart and I’m certain that they’re the next big thing.
It seems fitting that my first interview of 2017 takes place with a band from my city of Memphis, Tennessee. Within five minutes of speaking with Graham Rowell, Andrew Isbell, Spencer Stewart, and Jeffery Jordan, I knew this was going to be a unique interview. Even off-stage, these guys who form the group The Band CAMINO exhibit an exceptionally electric chemistry.
“So i want you to imagine a beautiful nebulous starscape, close your eyes, you are far away in a galaxy and you are on a yacht but it’s not like a yacht in the ocean. It’s a space yacht. There’s all these space yacht things: space cocaine, space caterers and you’re sailing among the stars. That’s what we want to be,” that’s how Bruce describes the sound of Wonderbitch. Interstellar yacht rock.
Héloïse Letissier, better known as Christine and The Queens, is a phenomenal French musician known for her incredible performances and damn catchy/moving/inspiring songs. She also always dresses in a masculine way and has that effortless beauty thing going on.
Music. What is it? It’s way more than it seems. Music is the art of sound in time that expresses ideas and emotions in significant forms through the elements of rhythm, melody, harmony, and color.
Quiet Company is an Austin band that garnered a lot of national attention for their album We Are All Where We Belong. What grabbed my attention about them was their dynamic and intense live show, complete with crowd interaction and political rants. I talked to frontman Taylor Muse about their latest album Transgressor, competitive Austin bands, and why bands are scared to “go political”.
