Interview With Boca Chica
PITTSBURGH-BASED ORCHESTRALLY-MANEUVERED TWANG-POP MERCHANTS
Our collaborative project with EardrumsPop is going great guns and now boasts a rather impressive list of alumni. As well as Tiny Fireflies, Paperfangs, Sometimes Always, Alison Eales, Baffin Island, KooKooo Kitchen, Early To Bed, Far Concern and Olafachada we can now add Boca Chica to the growing roll-call. In case you’ve forgotten, here’s how the collaboration works.
EardrumsPop is an internet-based record label. They love warm and melodic music of all kinds, endorse collaborative working, and love helping to get good music and ace art out into the eyes and ears of the general public. They do not believe in money so their releases are given away. You can experience this warming generosity for yourself as they put out free digital singles each month through their eyegasmic website. Every single will include several songs and a cover version and the artwork will be made by their favourite illustrators. Where does Negative Narrative fit into this? Well – and I’m sure you guessed this bit already – the release will be supplemented by one of our world-famous, increasingly-in-demand intraviews.
Boca Chica are an orchestral twang-pop band from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Led by songwriter Hallie Pritts, their songs are dark and catchy, combining somewhat surreal lyrics and instrumentation with the crossover appeal of a pub band. The band thrives on collaboration and with this new EardrumsPop release they take it this to a new level. Collorating isn’t really a foreign concept to the band as sicne their inception they’ve had more than forty different members. Anyway, I’ll stop nattering. I recommend you have a peruse of these snaps, download our favourite track from the package here (it’s called For Jacob With Malaria) and if you’re getting on well with everything that’s going on then go here to download the full single package and artwork. It’s completely free and utterly wonderful.
