Before embarking on their US Tour, A Music Blog, Yea? caught up with Nashville’s modern folk duo Neulore (Adam Agin and William T. Cook). Read our interview below as we spoke with Adam to discuss their full length debut Animal Evolve, meeting new people, Ellen Degeneres, and a mounted wooden cow.
AMBY: Hey Neulore, thanks for speaking with us today. What’s the band been up to lately?
Neulore: Of course! We’re ready to hit the road for all of May. The folks over at communion asked us to join their tour and we couldn’t be happier to be apart of it.
AMBY: How would you describe each member of the band in one word?
Neulore: William: Perfectionist, Adam: Spontaneous
AMBY: Who inspires your modern folk?
Neulore: Anything from a good book to a captivating movie. Stories are what drive us.
AMBY: What’s the story behind your new single Shadow of a Man?
Neulore: We all have had a close friend or family member who has went down a destructive path. It’s about cherishing who they once were and being there to help them come back around.
AMBY: Your full length debut Animal Evolve is due for release this summer/fall. What can fans expect to hear from the album?
Neulore: We wanted the record to have a cinematic element to it, so when building the songs we imagined the scene the song should live in and made it sound how it looked in our heads. It’s dynamic and aggressive, yet reverent.
AMBY: Soon embarking on a US Tour, what do you look forward to most?
Neulore: We are thrilled to get back on the road. Meeting new people is easily our favorite part of touring. We love getting to make new friends!
AMBY: What is one of your most memorable show experiences?
Neulore: We played in in Washington DC last summer. The crowd was super rowdy that night and it sparked an energy in the room. Someone in the front row was dancing and singing so loud I could hear them better than myself!
AMBY: If you could spin only one more record for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Neulore: That’s a tough one. For me, it’d probably be Feist, The Reminder or Ryan Adams, Cold Roses.
AMBY: Who would you like to be most and least stuck in an elevator with?
Neulore: It’s a tie between Ellen Degeneres and Walter White for most. But no one is coming to mind for least.
AMBY: Lastly, tell us something about the band that nobody knows yet.
Neulore: We have wooden cow mounted on the wall in the studio and we named him “Cowlvin”…. GET IT!?!
Thank you Neulore, for giving us your answers!
