EASY ROSCOE – PIÑATA (interview)


PARTY ROCK & POWER POP (from Nashville). Very very good PARTY ROCK & POWER POP!

What was the biggest fun during the making of the last album?

This time around in the studio we had much more confidence in ourselves as a band and playing as a single unit. Because of that we are excited about the sound we got out of these songs which to us sound more cohesive than our last album.

If we want to know you, which song do we have to listen to? And why?

We have so many different sounds depending on who wrote the song that it’s impossible to nail one song down. I think Roll Baby Roll and Green Leather jacket are a good glimpse in to our “fun” rock side, but we also have more emotionally charged songs like Never Lie to You and sing alongs like By the Water and We Cry. So basically listen to the entire new EP lol!

What’s the story behind the band name?

A few of the band members were watching a true crime documentary and heard the term roscoe being used as a reference to a gun which they thought was a cool term. We started out more acoustic based so we put easy in front of roscoe to chill things out and ever since we’ve been Easy Roscoe.

The music industry has changed a lot (or so they say). What did it bring you? And what not?

We do everything in house and on our own so we don’t have a great view in to the actual music industry such as record labels, but I think the social media aspect of music now allows every artist direct access to their fans and music lovers in general. With the internet, everyone has access to 3 billion possible consumers so it’s a great platform to display your music.

Somebody must have decided to turn Never Lie To You into an epic? How special is it to write such a exceptional good song?

Nice of you to say that! That particular song started out just like all our other songs in that someone brought the chords, lyrics, and melody to the band and everyone wrote their own part from there. We never set out to write an epic song, but glad it sounds that way!

She tells you she will decide on a 5-song-mix tape if there is going to be a second date. Which 5 would you put on?

If we’re talking about any 5 songs ever made, that’s really tough! Everyone in the band has very different taste in music so it would change depending on who you ask, but I think we would all agree that any Beatles song is fine by us.

What’s up for the next couple of months?

We are doing a few weekend runs to Alabama, Kentucky, and Pennsylvania. Our next show in Nashville is in July and other than that we’ll continue to write new songs and keep grinding away!
