INTERVIEW: Thrash Pop Duo Piss Off!

Hi guys, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?

Better than ever, ready to piss off the universe.

Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Cyberfrog”?

Stand back, protect your neck, don’t be afraid, let it all out.  That bass is the sound of cyberfrog awakening.

Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?

Living in New York sucks. Talking shit is how we cope.

How was the filming experience?

Our manager said we were nuts to try to pull off as many stunts as we did in the video, but we said “HA! Go make us a mix CD.”  Then we consumed about 4 gallons of iced coffee and things got real cool.

The single comes off your new album Perfect Is For Amateurs – what’s the story behind the title?

Well it was a toss up between that or Buy This & Die, or Buy This or Die.  Couldn’t decide between those two so we picked Perfect is For Amateurs.

How was the recording and writing process?

Pure flamethrower – these songs were so high pressure in us they just flew out.  Our engineer wore sunglasses, he said we were the fastest and brightest he’d seen.

Back in ’14 one of you guys moved to CA – did you bring some new influences back with you?

Shhh, let’s not speak of the past.  Living in New York is the best, everyone here is a little more pissed off.

Speaking of cities and influences, does Brooklyn play a role in your music?

Brookyn is equal parts fumes, hype, scams, urine soaked sidewalks, rats & gentrifiers.  So is PISS-OFF!

For those who aren’t familiar with the sound, can you tell us more about what exactly is Thrash Pop?

We will give you a thrashing if you don’t like our music.

What draws you into this style in particular?

All thrill no fill no chill.  The music grabs people and shakes them ’til they dance for us.

Where did you find the inspiration for the songs and lyrics?

They just come to us, like whispers in the wind.

Any plans to hit the road?

We are coming for you – go to www.pissoff.nyc to find out.

What else is happening next in Piss Off!’s world?

Well first we have A LOT of laundry to do, then we will release a couple of EPs, videos, tour & try not to get kicked out of any more venues.
