One Question Interviews: Spotlights

Sarah Quintero (Spotlights)

SPB:What’s the strangest trend you see in modern music (or in the industry)?

Quintero: The strangest trend I have been noticing today in music is seeing older bands (that I grew up listening to), like Failure, Shiner, and Hum, get back together and be reviewed and/or accepted into the “metal” scene. Growing up these bands were, to my recollection, considered more Rock or Alternative. I think it’s awesome and I love that they are getting that recognition, because they are heavy as F. I also think that the “industry” today is a lot more accepting now that the lines have been dissolving that were created by the big dinosaurs that used to run it. Weird? Yes. Awesome? Definitely!! Heavy music has a bright future and it’s exciting!
