Interview: 10 Questions with The Radio Broadcast

Where do you think your passion for music came from?

Not too sure where either of our passions for music came from. Maybe a past life? Maybe something that is part of our soul?


Who are your biggest influences?

There is a lot of inspiration and musical influence to be found in the world and for us as far a piece of music goes there are two major electronic groups that have stuck out the most and helped shape our minds to develop the sounds of The Radio Broadcast and that would be Crystal Castles and INNERPARTYSYSTEM. We love the DIY approach IPS takes when it comes to stage lighting and we love their heavy and raw electronic feel. With CC they come across a sort of mysterious. We love their punk attitude in the electronic scene. We really like their lo-fi gritty electronic sounds. We study these bands and many others to try and better ourselves as a band. We try to align our selves with similar sounding artists but we do our best to remind our selves that other bands and musicians are jus…

Interview: 10 Questions with Krantz

Where do you think your passion for music came from?


Both my parents were very into music as I grew up. My dad’s a drummer as well so I grew up listening to him jam with his bands in the basement. I’m sure that has something to do with it.

So many, but at the moment, I’m gonna say…Party in the USA by Miley Cyrus. Such a good hook.

Interview: 10 Questions with Avalanche

Where do you think your passion for music came from?
Steven Campbell (lead vocals, bass): Most likely my dad, he used to sing in rock bands back in the ’70s and ’80s, so I was surrounded by the music from when I was a little kid.

Veronica 'V' Taleski (lead guitar): I have no idea, no one I knew played anything, maybe listening to some of my dad's old rock and metal CDs got me into that kind of music over what was playing on the radio. He bought a guitar for my brother and he never touched it so I started playing around with it but wasn't too into it. I think it was after I discovered AC/DC and saw them live that I decided that I wanted to be a musician.

Ryan Roma (drums): Yeah, AC/DC.

Arthur Divis (rhythm guitar): Not too sure, I think it might have been that as a kid Mum and dad always used to play music around the house and eventually I got a guitar and that was it.


Who are your biggest influences?
Steven: I think at the moment I’ve been really influenced by a lot of the …

Interview: 10 Questions With Deitre

Where do you think your passion for music came from?

I love this question. In this moment, as I think about it, it was always an innate thing. I was the kid subconsciously trying to outsing the radio. My mother use to have to turn it louder to drown my prepubescent voice out! My whole life has been a manifestation of where I am now.

Who are your biggest influences?

I think this is constantly changing because my biggest influences tend to be the people in my life that inspire me. My relationships. My father.


To you, what is the most important thing about playing live?

People can see through bullshit. So be IN THE MOMENT.


What is the one song you had wished you had written?

PASS haha!


What are the biggest lessons learned over the years?

If you don’t listen to your gut, it will constantly remind you that you are living a lie.


Are there any bands/artists that you recommend that don’t much attention?
I mean, my secret obsession is Olafur Arnolds. But I’m pretty sure he gets PLENTY of attention.


If the…
