One Question Interviews: Drunk Couples

Andrew Barnes (Drunk Couples – drums)

SPB: Drunk Couples is a departure in sound from your previous project. Do you find it challenging to separate the different styles or associations that come with changing bands?

Barnes: It all came pretty naturally to totally shift musical gears when CJ and I started Drunk Couples. Not only is this band a different setup as far as who plays what instrument, but we also felt like we took our old band Gifts From Enola as far as we wanted to go with the sound that we established and tinkered with over the years. Ever since that band broke up, it's been pretty easy for all four band members to hit the reset button on what kind of musical outlets we wanted to explore. In the case of Drunk Couples we just wanted to write no-frills songs that were loud, fun, gritty, and a little sassy. Who knows what it'll turn into as long as we keep the band going and things evolve, but it's a vibe that feels right for now.
