XPN was first introduced to Philly rock group Oldermost when they dropped off a copy of their first CD about 4 years ago. Since then, the band has continued making great, atmospheric rock, similar to artists like Band of Horses and Wilco. Last year, the band did a Key Studio Session with electrifying performances of some of the songs from I Live Here Now. Recently, the band did an interview with the local blog Watchtower.
In the interview, the band talked about their musical start, the reason behind the album title, and their future plans. In the words of the lead singer, Bradford Bucknum, the LP is not necessary a love letter to living in Philly, but a document of how life has changed in the past few years since the band got together in Philly. In that sense, I Live Here Now is an optimistic rumination of growing up, especially on tracks like “What If I Run.”
Oldermost is set to come out with music for their forthcoming release near the end of the summer. Catch the band playing their new music at The Balcony July 11th along with Dogs on the Main Street. Get more information on the show here. Watch the interview below.
