Jen and Henry sat down for an interview this week with music blog Mind Equals Blown to chat about It’s Got To Be Now, how Aloud manages to “relieve” tension on tour, and growing up with music around the house.
Home was a musical place. Mom had loads of records and my grandmother played piano. I spent a lot of time at my grandmother’s house picking out melodies on her piano every day. So they started me on lessons, and at about thirteen I decided I wanted to learn guitar. I taught myself a few chords and started writing songs.
Meanwhile, in a different corner of the internet, Tri-State area paper The Aquarian Weekly had some flattering things to say about It’s Got To Be Now and Aloud:
I have come across a lot of “indie rock” bands, and while many of them sport similar features, what separates Aloud from the riff-raff is that they have their own sound. … The group shows that the way they make music is different from how those other bands do it, and it’s pretty much better in every way.
…and, by the by, It’s Got To Be Now is OUT TODAY.
