Krooked Tongue/Best Ex
In this edition of POSTBURNOUT.COM Interviews…, we talk with Oli Rainsford, Dan Smith, and Harry Pritchard from the Bristol rock trio Krooked Tongue in the first half, and with Mariel Loveland of the New Jersey alt-pop act Best Ex in the second. Krooked Tongue discuss their last EP “Deathproof,” how the music has changed on this release compared to their others, forming in Bristol despite none of the band members being from there, the cinematic influence in their music, covering Jay-Z’s “99 Problems” for a college assignment, accidentally topping the Dutch charts, covering “Hasta Mañana Monsieur” by Sparks for an upcoming tribute album, playing in Estonia, and more. Mariel discusses Best Ex’s new debut album “With a Smile,” her former band Candy Hearts, how being a solo artist compares to being in a band, how songwriting has not changed from her pop punk band to her electro-influenced solo work, being on Iodine/Alcopop! Records, and more.
