One Question Interviews: True Widow

Dan (True Widow)

SPB: Are genre labels important to assign to music? 

Dan: I don't think genre labels are important. I do think they are helpful. When I get asked what kind of music we play I always say rock music. Not very helpful. Then I start saying things like 'it's heavy and slow. But not aggressive heavy. I sing and the bass player sings, she's a girl. Blah blah blah.' Genre labels get you to the point more quickly. I'm no snob, so I don't mind all the things that people come up with to describe music.
