TWIST just chatted with the band Boys Like Girls! We got the inside scoop on their new album Crazy World, their songwriting process, and what's up next for them! Check out our exclusive convo below, and make sure to pick up Crazy World, available on iTunes now!
TWIST: How would you describe your new album Crazy World?
Boys Like Girls: On Crazy World, we tried a bunch of new things, and stayed away from the big wall of guitars.
TWIST: How does Crazy World differ from your previous albums?
BLG: It was written in Nashville. We had a bunch of friends and awesome musicians collaborate on it.
TWIST: Is there a song on the album that is particularly meaningful for you? If so, which one?
BLG: "Life of the Party" its a really cool track. It was awesome having some gospel singers come out and sing at the end.
TWIST: What's your songwriting process like?
BLG: Martin gets into a room, shows us some stuff and we just get after it.
TWIST: Who are some of your musical influences?
BLG: Some of my influences are bands like Nirvana, and Pearl Jamm Â¬-- I loved the grunge era and am also very much into bands like Coldplay, and some newer bands, like The Lumineers.
TWIST: If you could work with any current artist, who would it be and why?
BLG: I would love to play drums in the Foo Fighters, or play drums for Jay-Z. I think that would be awesome.
TWIST: What's next for you? Do you have plans to tour?
BLG: Right now we just put our record out on Dec 11th, which we are super excited about! I am sure there will be a tour to follow.
