The Doctor Is In: Interview with Patients
What is your creative process? Do you have a set way of making songs, or do they just flow?
It’s always different. Sometimes the melody for a song is created first and then the lyrics are written after. Other times the lyrics are made and then the song is built around them. Usually I bring a basic structure or an idea to the guys and then we all work on the song together. But if any of us is unhappy with a song, we toss it away. It’s important to us that everyone in the band is happy with what we’re doing.
What is your favorite aspect of being a musician? Do you prefer performing or writing music?
My favorite aspect of being a musician is getting to work with music. It’s amazing to be able to do that! I love performing and writing songs. I don’t think I’ll ever tire of doing both.
Next month you’re heading to the UK for a few shows– what are your expectations? What are you excited about most?
We’re excited about performing in new places and sharing our music with new audiences. We’re really looking forward to meeting lots of new people and other musicians as well. We’re going to be touring with our good friends in the band Dead Buttons. It’s going to be cool to get to share this experience with them.
