Welcome Three Sides! To start off, tell our readers more about the band. Where you started and where you are now?
-Thanks for having us! We’re 5 friends from a small suburban town called Moorpark, California. We all went to school together but after high school we really connected as musicians. We started sharing music with each other and became inspired to create our own style of rock. We try to keep open boundaries when we create and we think that’s helped lead us to create new music.
You have a new single out today “She Don’t Mean To” Congrats! Tell us more about how the song came to life.
-At the time we wrote this song we were really into The Doors. We love how unique songs like “The End” and “Riders On the Storm” are. So mellow and melancholy. We decided to spice something like that up with a Three Sides touch. In the studio we kept a simple songwriting approach and tried not to overthink the message. We added the chorus melody to really give the song that classic, familiar sound that you can’t help sing along to.
Do you get nervous before you release new music or is it more of an excitement for you?
-Releases are very exciting for us. We usually host a concert and have a wild time. Partly a concert, more-so a party!
Was there anyone or anything in particular that pushed you to pursue music?
-We love music festivals, we love “Animals” by Pink Floyd, and we love making rock n roll. Those were three pretty significant influences in pursuing music.
Do you have plans to release more music this year?
-We sure do! One if not two songs hopefully!
The US music scene differs from city to city, what’s the music scene like in your area?
-In Ventura County our options are more limited to bars, breweries and coffee shops. This has given us the opportunity to curate and promote some of our own events. We’ll host a music festival or take over a brewery with a solid lineup of local bands.
Tell us what you have planned for the rest of 2020? Any surprises?
-Writing has been our big focus this year. 2020 will most likely be perfecting some new songs, releasing some songs and more writing.
Where can we find you online and get our hands on your new music?
