It doesn’t make any difference - a band’s a band. I would just rather like not to think about what someone’s trying to say it is. I hate it. I hate what people who don’t know I’m in a band ask the question, “What would you classify your music as?” I hate that question because I don’t know. I always say, “It’s loud, and bring earplugs if you want to come see us play.
— Nick Thieneman of Young Widows
Pure Love Stream ‘Anthems’ Early
Pure Love are streaming their new album, Anthems, a week early. Give it a spin below by clicking “Read More.”
- Laura Snapes: When Zach Hill was interviewed about Death Grips for this site, he said, "We're people who aren't ruled by money." It made me think about the actual realism of Death Grips' financial well-being. You can't live off nothing.
- Marnie Stern: That's true. When you are 20, you don't care if you sleep on the floor and don't have anything. But when you start to think about things like having a family, you think: "I can't do that if I wanna keep doing this." I don't mean to lay it out as a sacrifice-- like I have to choose music or a family-- but in some ways that is true, at least financially.
Making the same mistakes over and over is considered insanity. As much as I want to help young bands, the fans themselves don’t buy this product – shirts, CDs or whatever. There are not a lot of people looking for new music; it’s oversaturated. I was losing money and working hard, but getting nothing out of it.
