INTERVIEW: Helen Kelter Skelter

1. How would you classify Helen Kelter Skelter’s sound? 

A: It’s the type of music you would listen to while driving in the middle of the Mojave desert.

2. What do you want fans to take from your music? 

A: Whatever they want, the meaning is in the eye of the listener.

3. Who are you current top 5 musical influences? 

A: Metz, Orb, Natural Child, old Tame Impala, and of coarse King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard.

4. How’s the music scene in Norman? 

A: It’s a hidden gem.

5. What is the best concert you have been to? 

A:  Prolly Bob Dylan and Phil Lesh and Friends. That was pretty cool when I was 15.

A: We get to showcase new songs and we get to see how people react to them.

7. Is there a song on Melter that stands out as your personal favorite? 

A: Minding is up there for sure, but its hard to say. Sometimes its a love/hate relationship with every single one of them.

8. The video for “GUUD” is phenomenally trippy. Any more videos we can expect? 

A: Yes, we are working on one for Palamino. It has wind suits, mad scientists, and a fat ass cat.

9. What do you think is the best way to experience Helen Kelter Skelter’s sound? Headphones? Video? Live? 

A: All of the above? We make every record for the intentions of listening to it on vinyl, but we love a good live show.
10. What’s next for HKS? More touring? 

A: Touring, and working on new songs is what we’re looking forward to. Maybe a trip to Mars…
