Interview – Homemade Crazy

Who are you and what are you doing here?

 

My name is Aaron Paiz.  I play bass for Homemade Crazy. Thank you for having me.

 

How did the band start?

 

Koby and I started Homemade Crazy in 2012 about a year and a half after we walked away from our last project Kaleidoscope Eyes.  The band didn’t end on the best of terms and it was very discouraging.  Until Koby’s marriage started to collapse he pretty much stopped writing all together and eventually he couldn’t hold it in anymore.  There was so much stress and emotion building that he had to let it out so he finally gave in and wrote “time bomb”.  There was no stopping him after that.   He called me over to have a beer one day so he could play me his songs, so me and breezy came over.  I liked his material so we showed him some of our songs and it just kind of happened.  A few weeks later our old buddy and original junior high drummer moved back to town and hopped on the opportunity to play with us again.  We got our set together and started playing local gigs and just started branching out from there.

 

How would you describe your band?

 

Indie Electro punk

 

If you had to choose one song you’ve written that best defines your band which one would it be?

 

That would be hard since all of our songs sound different.  If I had to pick just one, I think I would it would choose “[Un]Lucky one”.  Its one of the few songs that the entire band had written together.

 

In this day and age where anyone is pretty much able to pick up an instrument, what would you say sets your band apart from the rest?

 

We think we have a pretty unique sound.  The reason we decided to call the upcoming album “synergy” is the fact that we all bring a completely different piece to the picture that somehow makes something really special when put all together.  We also have a keytar synth which we think is pretty cool.

 

Where are people able to hear your songs?

 

You can like us at www.facebook.com/homemadecrazymusic to stay up to date on the august 19th release of our debut album “synergy”.  We will be releasing tracks and videos leading up then.

 

Are you playing any shows anytime soon (if you live outside of Australia, do you have any plans for a trip down under)? 

 

We would like to be playing down under by early 2015.

 

What is your proudest moment/greatest achievement as a band? 

 

Honestly we are very proud of our album.  It was a lot of fun and a lot of work but it was a great experience.

 

Tell us 3 bands that we should be listening to/be keeping an eye out for.
