BAND CRUSH: ACRYLICS
easy listening in the coolest way possible.
How did Acrylics come about?
Jason [Klauber] and I went to Oberlin College together- we were both playing music and I wanted to start a band, so I gave a friend of his a tape of my demo. The friend played the tape for Jason, and Jason thought it was Liz Phair! He was like, "Let's start a band with her"- and we haven't stopped since.
Where do you imagine your music being played?
We love people to make out to our music. Really.
Who is on your iPod right now?
We've been listening to the Crazy Horse records a lot, Neil Young's backing band.
How did your sound come about?
I don't even think we knew what we were getting into when we started making the record, we didn't set out to do something that would be really different than what was going on around us. It just came from playing with sounds and we took it very slowly and experimented a lot.
What's your favorite song on Lives and Treasure?
One of my favorites is definitely Molly's Vertigo-we recorded it on my birthday, so that's kind of special.
Acrylics' debut album, Lives and Treasure, drops in January.
