You may have heard their song “Quicksand” on the season three premiere of Grey’s Anatomy or seen their video “Say” on Fuse’s IMX. You may have caught them on tour with Zwan, Switchfoot or Yellowcard. But if it just so happens that you’ve never been properly introduced to this talented trio, it’s about time you discovered Chicago’s Sleeping at Last. Having caught Billy Corgan’s attention with their 2000 release Capture, which is now available to download for free on their website, the band has since released 2003’s Ghosts and 2006’s Keep No Score. Now with a live DVD on the horizon, the politest people on the planet spared a few minutes to answer our questions. Enjoy!
Often lauded for their creative and progressive “space pop” style, 2006 looks to be the year that Denmark’s Mew just might amass an audience as large as they deserve. Having released their albums via their own record label (Evil Office) since 2000, the latest addition to the Mew discography, And the Glass Handed Kites, finds the band – Jonas Bjerre (vocals), Bo Madsen (guitars), Johan Wohlert (bass) and Silas Utke Graæ Jørgensen (drums) – expanding their adventurous, otherwordly sound to create one of the year’s must-hear records. Following a recently concluded summer stint supporting Bloc Party on tour and with their latest album newly released stateside, vocalist Jonas Bjerre kindly set aside some time to discuss touring, musical inspiration and the band’s creative process. Enjoy and, to quote the official bio, keep having those nightmares!
