Josie got a chance to sit down with with Sam, Simon, Tasso, Nik and Alice of Youngblood Hawke at the 2013 Firefly Music Experience. This indie rock group is out of the LA music scene, even though Nik is from the East Coast.
The band has all known each other for years and played together in various projects but been official as a band for about 2 years now.
Alice is the lone female in the band. She jokes that it’s difficult to “wake up in the morning and deal with their s***.” She balances her girly side and tomboy side with the help of her bandmates.
Listen To The Entire Interview:
The song writing process is normally led by Simon and Sam but each member can contribute and even change the vision of a song. They start with instrumentals then develop some melodies then get the band input but “usually at that point it changes into something completely different. That’s part of whats really cool about our band it can start with one vision and then once everybody adds to it it just completely shifts into this whole new thing.”
