The Interiors

Check out these Chicago rockers, the Interiors.

From the first few bars of the song "I'm so Happy" you'll find yourself completely hooked as your toes start taping to the strong bass line. For me, I'm really drawn to way they texturize their songs with interesting rhythm and beats (makes sense since they cite a love for African music in their bio). The percussive elements equally share space with the vox which joins in effortlessly. Their sound is oddly familiar and yet difficult to categorize, retro and modern all at the same time. The music is accessible but not dull.

Chase Duncan's soulful vocals are absolutely solid as he croons out interesting lyrics such as these (from "The Bug"):

The President locked the oval office
For fear of catching the bug.
And persons who are much better than you
Are locked up there with him, safe from the bug.

Doctors dress in bird masks and pointed hats
Drenched in vinegar.
While down in the ghetto
Bodies are burning, deeper holes are dug.

I also already have a favorite quote from these guys (taken totally out of context of course from this interview):
We also vigorously oppose force feeding of any kind, unless it's Kate Moss.

Drummer, Brian Lubinsky was kind enough to contact this blog and send me some mp3s for your aural pleasure.

Listen to:

"I'm so Happy"
"You Should Have Known"

The drummer Brian contacted me and sent me a small press kit. It's good music--a lot of times I get contacted by people I don't really dig, but the Interiors are an exception.
