GET TO KNOW: Energy Whores



Having already developed and cultivated a wonderfully distinctive sound these last few years, New York's Energy Whores return to the fold once again to deliver their latest outing 'The Winter Sky'.


Capturing more of that bright and euphoric direction they are known for, 'The Winter Sky' makes for a rousing return from the duo. With its fresh and immersive aesthetic perfectly set against some euphoric hooks throughout, they are continuing to cement themselves as true innovators on the new music scene right now.


So with the new single out now, we sat down with them to find out more about their background and influences over the years.



What was the first band or artist you fell in love with?


Simon and Garfunkel and The Beatles.


Did you ever form a band when you were younger and if so, what did they sound like?


I jammed with lot’s people in college but never formed an official band. We played mostly Boston, Bachman Turner Overdrive and ELO inspired music.


What has been your primary inspiration in writing music?


The first reason is to tell a story while conveying an important message. The second is that music exists everywhere. I know this sounds pretentious and unhelpful as an answer, but I am inspired by everything I hear. For example, birds are the treble and the machines at the construction site are the base, then why not add a melody and lyrics about birds having to live around a construction site?


What is a song you wish you had written yourself?


Weird Goodbyes by The National (feat. Bon Iver). The lyrics are perfection, and the music fits brilliantly with them and Tunnel of Love by Dire Straits because I just love it so much.


If there was any moment in your career you could relive, what would it be?


The moments would be, every time I stay up all night writing a song and I’m in the creative groove. I love my intimate moments alone with music.


Which artist would you most love to share a stage with?


Radiohead


And is there an artist you would love to collaborate with as well?


There are many but it depends on the genre of music I am creating at the moment. Sometimes I want to collaborate with Tiësto and sometimes with Camp.


Where do you see yourself in five years time?


It’s hard to answer this because I have no idea. I can wish for silly happy things like a child blowing out birthday candles but ultimately, it’s up to me and the laws of chaos. I will keep writing songs and hope people listen to them. I got on a train with no time of arrival or destination and I’m just going for the ride.
