Coming from Toronto this week, we have Laughed the Boy. They’ve got a new single on the table and if you’re a fan of bands like Death Cab for Cutie and The Shins, you’re going to enjoy the hell out of “Indifferent.” In our quick exchange we talked to one of their own about firsts, nostalgia and when you can expect more from them…Then after that stay tuned for tour new and this week’s video picks!
Kendra: What was the last thing you were indifferent about?
Chris: I think it’s really great to have passion, and many of us find it as we grow older. But I’ve definitely learned to be more indifferent to the way the world perceives me at this point. I feel like I am who I am and there’s nothing to gain from worrying about what other people think. I think everyone should try to be less like each other and more like themselves, it’s more fun that way.
Kendra: Because “Indifferent” is one of the first songs you guys ever did as a band together, do you think it’ll always hold a special place in your heart?
Chris: Sure, you always remember the first time you jam a song that feels really good right off the bat. The first time we played it, it just clicked, felt right, and eventually became a staple in our set.
Kendra: You, me, everyone – we’re all about that 90’s nostalgia. Other than music, what’s your favourite memory of that decade?
Chris: It’s a toss-up between the TV shows and the video games for me. From Super Mario World to Donkey Kong Country 2, to Seinfeld and The Simpsons…it was a fun time to grow up.
Kendra: When and where can fans see you next?
Chris: We’ll be playing around Ontario a lot over the next few months. Nothing official yet but we’ll be sure to keep everyone up to date on our Facebook and Twitter pages!
Kendra: Lastly, when will we be getting more music?
Chris: Well, we’re finishing up the mixing of our full length album next week so I’m hoping we can release it before December. It’s been a lot of work but we’re happy with the way it’s turning out.
