Take Aim: Amy Sciarretto vs. The Indecent
Wed, 15 Aug 2012 14:26:02
Usually, when we do a Take Aim, Amy Sciarretto goes head-to-head, toe-to-toe, mano y mano with one artist. When she stepped into the ring with The Indecent, it was three against one, since they are triplets. No fair, right? Nah, they were good, fun kids!
The Indecent are triplets (Bo, Maddy & Emily Brout) born and raised in NYC. The three of them started playing guitars and writing songs at age eight, influenced by Black Sabbath, The Velvet Underground, Sonic Youth and Nirvana. They recruited their friend Nick to play drums and started playing local NYC venues and festivals.
Their EP Control drops on Sept. 18.
If you were not doing music, you would be:
Nick: There's nothing else I would want to do. Music has always been the most important thing in my life. Although Emily would probably do something in science and write alot of books. Bo wants to be an astronaut. Maddy would probably be doing something in politics while running a chocolate factory. If I absolutely had to choose, I would probably be a zamboni driver.
Share a writing or recording story from the album!
The band: "Here Comes Another" is written about our dog. Although it may sound pretty deep, we just looked at our dog, who is special in his own way and decided we had to make a song from his point of view. It's also in its own subtle way about gluttony and dogs are a perfect representative of that!
What is it like being siblings in a band?
Bo: We don't really fight that much. Usually two of us get into some sort of huge fight once a year, and only really when we're writing. When this happens Maddy throws things and Emily picks up forks.
Bo: It's nice being related because we are always together so writing and recording gets done faster, but it's annoying because I have to see them all the time.
Nick: We don't really focus on fitting a certain sound or genre, we listen to such a wide range of music, and are inspired by so many different things and sounds. Then it all just comes together. We all have our own groups of bands that we individually listen to, which really helps us all collaborate. Our influences vary from Black Sabbath to Pink Floyd and Jimi Hendrix, to Sonic Youth, Queens of the Stone Age and Nirvana to Hawkwind, to Motörhead, to Foo Fighters…
