For many, Grayson Gilmour is better known as one quarter of New Zealand band So So Modern, and has spent the last years shifting between playing and recording with the band, and his own ‘bedroom/studio recluse’ projects. His track Humble Punk Rock features on Volume 1 of the RUBY album. We recently spoke to him and he had the following to say..
What is the inspiration behind the song? What is it all about?
Who did you work with on the song?
Me, Myself & I.
Does it have a video? What is that about?
...this was conceived and filmed within a day as part of an ongoing collaboration between me and Jesse Taylor Smith, he's done a couple other videos for me too.
What other New Zealand artists do you look up to?
Too many to mention only a handful!
What instruments do you play?
What do you consider when you are getting dressed to perform (clothes / makeup / hair do etc)?
Look good, feel good, play good.
