One Question Interviews: Body Stuff

Curran Reynolds (Body Stuff)

SPB: Do you make a conscious decision to reference or deviate from past material when working on Body Stuff?

Reynolds: The Body Stuff approach is to make music from the gut, without consciously thinking about any other music at all. After it's made, then I can reflect and say, "Hey, this sounds like it's referencing this or that." Looking at the two EPs I've made so far, in hindsight I can say that some of what's being referenced is the big rock and pop hits of the late '80s. This is the music I grew up with as a little kid and naturally it comes through. But those influences are buried under the noise of other influences, like death metal drumming and various New York City vibes. And to compare the first EP and the second, I think the second has some dreamy Maine woods isolation vibes in it too, because that's where I was living the year I wrote it.
