Interview With The U.S Americans

Where are we talking from today?

You’re speaking with Jeff and I’m holed up on Long Island, New York for the time being. 

What would you like to accomplish in 2020?

At this point, I’ll consider it a blessing if we ever get to play a show again. We were to being work on our sophomore LP last month, but Covid19 got in the way of that. Hopefully it will see the light of day by the end of the year.

What is your take on politics?

American politics are a joke. There is more thoughtful discourse about sports these days. I have my opinions on certain things, but I only talk about them with close friends in private.

What was it like putting together your EP?

Our debut was a collection of songs that we’d been writing and arranging since we started our band in 2014. It was just kind of natural. Once we had enough songs for a record, we went to a studio in Baltimore and laid down the tracks. I think the record we’re working on now is a bit more thematic. There are more common threads. I think we were more conscious of putting out a piece of art with continuity rather than a collection of songs.

If you were going to be stranded on a deserted island, what musical item would you take with you and why?

Probably a record player. It would make the days go by quicker and it would be hard to live without getting to hear music. The percussive crashing of the waves on the shore would get old after a while.
