Interview with Cole Morton about Ocean Architecture
by: Cole Morton
(Cole)- Cole, when you first heard the name Ocean Architecture what came to mind?
(Cole)- I thought of buildings in water. Like rusty oil rigs and flooded houses.
(Cole)- Interesting…Did that perspective change after you heard them. What were the new images in your head?
(Cole)- I now think of large buildings crumbling into the deep abyss. Imagery similar to Inception.
(Cole)- What do you think about this upcoming band?
(Cole)- Well, Cole, I’d have to say I was skeptical about their music…..until I heard it. This isn’t some band made up of punks looking to take down society, scene kids hating the world, or some dumb headbangers that worship breakdowns, these guys are musicians.
(Cole)- Ah I see, now, what about their style? What is so unique?
(Cole)- First off, they are all talented in their own ways. They are making art. An art that some do not appreciate, but everyone needs to actually stop what they are doing and pay attention to these guys. Parker is just a mad vocalist, so versatile. Kyle(Rufus) can just shred on guitar, so much potential in the kid, Eric keeps the band going like a heart beat, a huge piece to their success, Nic is absolutely sick, he strives to be the best. Finally, Joe is a master of the keyboard, he is the glue to the band.
(Cole)- Can you tell me about their origin and fan support?
(Cole)- They started in the dorm we all lived in. We had a name, and that was the Lyon Crew(the dorm we lived in). They had the idea to start a band, and they started off hot and fast. They had a few bumps in the road, while they had to replace the former lead singer Cedric. They acquired Parker, and then OA just took off exponentially. Their fan support comes from where they started, the Lyon Crew family. We will always be behind them in their journey. They also have support from other friends and bands that they’ve met on their adventure.
(Cole)- Okay, Cole, well that about wraps it up. Tell me one last thing. Why should I go to an OA concert?
(Cole)- I mean if you’re not a fan of originality and art, than don’t come. Don’t pretend to enjoy it. These guys are getting big, they could be the next big band to come out of Murfreesboro. The sky is the limit. If you are ready to hear some heart-stopping breakdowns, brain-melting riffs, brilliant lyrics, and some out-of-this-world keyboarding than get your fucking ticket now. Thanks for having me Cole.
