Although it was released at the start of this year, when we came across Alibi’s EP over on Musosoup we just had to invite them for an interview. Have a read of what we discussed here:
Can you tell us a bit about the band? Where are you from and how did you all meet?
We’re all from Mesa Arizona and we met through a old friend/coworker because he knew we all played instruments and figured we should get together and we had similar music tastes
If you had to sum up each band member in one word, what would you say?
Joe – Loud // Bryan – brains // Chris – heart
Where did the band name Alibi come from? Is there any special meaning behind it?
I was watching an Alex turner interview the guy from the Arctic monkeys and he said the word and I liked it.
Earlier this year, you released your EP I Think You Think Too Much. Can you tell us what inspired you to make this?
Typically girls is the subject of all our songs me getting my heartbroken or rejected sometimes it’s just me using my imagination like a song like “Too late” was a made up scenario.
Does each band member have a favorite track? Mine is certainly That’s OK.
That’s okay is a great one! Some of our favorite tracks are personally un-released ones for our up coming album but I would say on the Ep it’s between just a friend and too late for us
Looking back on the EP, is there anything you would do differently?
We would’ve recorded the Ep better we feel as the sound or tone of instruments could be a lot better and we could’ve taken more time
Have you guys had the chance to play the songs live? Are there any plans on doing so?
Yes we’ve played about 20 something shows now and have played all the songs live for awhile now typically at house parties
What artists have each of you been listening to recently?
Personally for me I’ve been on a maroon 5/Coldplay obsession for the other two guys they’ve been loving Interpol and kings of Leon
Where can we find out more about you?
You can find more about us on our website “thebandalibi.com” as well as our Instagram “thebandalibi”
Anything else you would like to tell us?
Be excited for our new album if you liked the songs off our Ep these new ones are gonna blow those out the water
I’d like to thank Joe and the rest of the band for taking the time to answer our questions. We would like to wish them the best of luck with the new album when it comes out!
