Leading up to the much anticipated Krank’d Up, we spoke to Aaron of Intervals:
1) How does it feel to visit and play in South Africa?
I actually haven’t got my head around it yet. The concept of playing international shows in general is still such a “pinch me” type vibe. South Africa is a place I never thought I would visit, let alone perform in. I can’t wait.
2) What inspires you to write your music?
Inspiration is a pretty mixed bag for me. I tend to find inspiration in everything from literature, to the music of my childhood. I can’t really pinpoint exactly what drives the music I write but I can confidently say that it is the sum of my immediate, and past inspirations, musically, visually, or otherwise.
3) What would you say is your greatest achievement to date?
I’d say its the ability to sustain Intervals and the music as a whole. I’ve always operated 100% independently. The fact that we’re discussing a show in South Africa is a testament to that. Its not easy to be a niche, independent artist. Especially one that makes instrumental guitar music. The relentless support from my fans is an ongoing achievement for me on a daily basis that I do not take for granted.
4) What can fans expect from you in the next year?
I have a new record that is currently being mixed. I spent the majority of this year working on new music and I am beyond excited for everyone to hear this record. After South Africa, I have a headline tour with support from Polyphia and Nick Johnston in Europe and another really awesome international show in a place I never thought I’d see. The new year will be a lot of touring in support of this new record. So stoked.
5) If you could be any animal, what would it be and why?
Haha, daaamn. That’s hard. I think tigers are bad ass. I think I’d be a tiger. I think? Yeah, let’s go with tiger. Don’t call me Tony though. Shit’s corny af.
