Interview: Broken Baby

Published on 6 September 2021 at 13:02

1: How did you decide on the name, “Broken Baby"?
I wish it had some real meaning, but it just kind of popped in one of our heads while we were walking home from a record shop. Not even sure what inspired it... but once Broken Baby came out we were like, "yeah, ok. That seems cool."
2: What inspires you to create?
Our impending death.
3: What advice would you give to someone who wants to be in a creative profession?
Have a backup plan. And stop caring what anyone has to say about what you create. Don't worry if it sucks. Just keep doing it.
4: Do you feel open minded about what you listen to? Do you like going out of your comfort zone?
Yeah! We both love listening to all kinds of new music. If it's good, it's undeniable no matter the genre.
5: What outlets do you find out about music from? (Record stores, magazines, samplers, etc.)
Friends. But also word of mouth by those who carefully curate their playlists and genuinely love finding new music. I find a lot of new music from certain people I follow on Twitter.
6: What is your favorite format to listen to music on? (CD, Vinyl, etc.)
Nothing beats the sound of your favorite album on a record player.
7: What band/artist do you think everyone should listen to?
Pleasure Venom, Young Winona, Human Barbie, Tummyache, Pure Adult, Reckling...there are so many new bands to fall in love with these days!
8: What motivates you to check out a new artist?
We want to be fans of new bands. And we want to see it live - and if the live show blows our face off we're fans for life.
9: Who was the first band/artist that became your favorite band?
I don't know if I can remember a first favorite, but I do remember being quite obsessed with Madonna for about a decade.
Living Colour was Alex's first real all-time favorite band.
10: What was the inspiration for your song “Madonna's A Dick”?
It was inspired by the 80s documentary “Heavy Metal Parking Lot,” where the the zebra-print jumpsuit guy gives his opinion on Madonna. “She’s a dick,” he says. Women are constantly met with systemic sexism and oftentimes dismissed. Even with all our progress, the double standard is still alive and well today.
