Steele: What have been your greatest challenges as a band?
The Organ Beats: money
Steele: How is it to write music and tour as siblings?
The Organ Beats: It’s great, we argue all the time.
Steele: What has Noelle’s experience in Damone brought to the band?
The Organ Beats: Bitterness
Steele: What makes The Organ Beats work well together?
The Organ Beats: We’re all nerds who love nothing more than playing music.
Steele: Why did you go to the Houston, Texas area to record Sleep When We are Dead?
The Organ Beats: To get away from the city and record for cheap.
Steele: What does a live gig bring to your music?
The Organ Beats: energy
Steele: How do you write your songs?
The Organ Beats: it usually starts with a verse then a chorus, pop a bridge in there next to a solo. haha, just kidding. For me I just write a poem and a riff and piece it together into a standard formula. The magic is in the recording, where you can layer on the spice and really be creative.
Steele: Where do you get the lyric ideas for what I interpret as melancholy love
The Organ Beats: Boys have definitely been a muse. I have a great appreciation for nature. But also persevering through tough times has been a topic on numerous occasions.
My favorite song right now is Sleep When We Are Dead by The Organ Beats:
