Native Blood as leather tote bag
Speaking of international markets, highly technical guitar bands like Intervals, Yvette Young and Covet, Animals As Leaders, Plini, Scale the Summit, CHON, and Polyphia are growing in popularity throughout the world. What unites your bands, and why is there such demand for this kind of guitar music?Look, there are so many legends that have done [instrumental guitar music] before. But it was executed differently—not to take away from anybody. They all paved the way for us. But there wasn’t as much attention to the overall compositions. Some of the early iterations of this music did feel self-indulgent, where it’s like a backing track and then room to rip on top. What I think creates this entire new universe is the prerequisite that you have to be a skilled composer and make interesting music. It’s inclusive of the entire band. It makes every person in this world feel more like a composer than a guitar player. If you look at all of the top people in this new wave, I think that’s one of the most congruent things.
And yet, people still say that the electric guitar is dying.Well, anyone who thinks the death of the electric guitar is upon us is very out of touch. You can’t hold its head underwater. The electric guitar is iconic. It’s not going anywhere.You still have young people that are really interested in music for music’s sake. And there is this wave of online instrumental guitar music that is the best it’s ever been. And for us to be able to go to places like Southeast Asia or South Africa or more obscure places and have hundreds of kids at shows or a large festival billing … it flies in the face of the argument that the electric guitar is dying. I make a living every day playing the electric guitar. My identity is built around this thing. I’ve been my own boss since 2015. I don’t really think you can tell me that my instrument or my craft is dying. This entire thing is bigger and better than it ever has been.
