Email * Hi guys. Thank you for talking to IAMUR today! We’re huge admirers of your work and are excited to speak with you! Can you start by introducing yourselves and letting us know your role in the band. The new single ‘Somebody to Love’ and the remixed version have both been released recently. How have they been received by your listeners? Are they getting a lot of traction online? Have they become hits at the live shows? The track itself has been covered over the decades by some huge artists. It was great to hear your take on it! What made you want to create your own version of the song? Jefferson Airplane are one of those bands from the sixties that are unmistakably of that era yet sound so current and relevant whenever you listen to them. Do you draw a lot of inspiration from them as a band? Are there any other artists from the sixties and seventies that have influenced your sound? Now, when mentioning Somebody to Love my mind jumps to Jim Carey in the Cable Guy. Musically, it’s not the best performance but theatrically it’s impressive to watch Carey groove it out! I’m aware one member of the band is known for having some eye-catching footwork on stage too. Can you tell us where you learned such slick steps and how did you first incorporate them into your live performances? You’ve been touring a lot over the past year. How have you found life on the road? I’ve seen you have opened up for Puddle of Mud recently. They’ve built a pretty dedicated following over the years. What was the concert like? Were you fans of the band before the show? After this latest tour what are the gigs that stand out the most? From scrolling through your Spotify playlists, it’s clear you have an eclectic taste in music. There’s everything from Rock, Metal and hip hop all the way to the dizzying heights of pop princess Britney Spears! Where does your interest in music stem from? Do you plan on exploring all of these genres in your own music? How did the three of you decide to form Sunvolume? Was it a natural evolution through friendship and shared interests? Did one of you track the others down? Or was it divine intervention? What’s the music scene like in Chicago for up-and-coming artists? Is there a lot of support for new bands? You worked with Kane Cherko on last year’s singles Fever in the Funkhouse and Crystallizer. How did you guys link up and what was the experience like in the studio? Both tracks have a classic alternative feel but are fused with grunge and psyche and metal. I’m a big fan. I know in the past that psychedelic music has been an influence but this feels heavier. The drums are significantly bassier. Was this a conscience decision or has the sound evolved naturally from the three of you being together? Can you describe your writing style for us? Is it an individualistic or collective effort? What can we expect from Sunvolume in the future? Have you booked any studio time? Is an album on the horizon?
