An Interview with Pink Mist, Clones of the Queen, and Boy and Sea!
This month at Art & Flea we are proud to showcase three of Honolulu’s top indie rock bands: Boy and Sea, Clones of the Queen, and Pink Mist! To honor the occasion we asked the bands some questions and got a wide array of answers regarding their views on what it’s like to be an indie band in Hawaii, trying to make a living as a musician, playing shows, and how the scene here has changed over the years.
How would you describe your sound?
Matt (Clones of the Queen): Layered, atmospheric electronic pop music with a strong and emotional delivery.
Mike Pooley (Pink Mist): Guitar based alternative pop… Or like two happy kids hugging, while wrapped up in a fuzzy blanket.
Jeff (Boy and Sea): Starting off with the hardest question… hmm, not sure. Indie pop (more indie less pop) sorta sums it up, I think. I have been writing songs and playing music for over a decade so our sound is loosely based on that—If you have heard my other bands (Ekto Gamut, Space Catalog, Algebra, Teradactyl and some others) you kinda know what we sorta sound like. We occasionally cover a song from one of my old bands. But lately the way the band writes music has less me and more of everyone else. I think you will get a feel for what we sound like while reading the answers to the other questions.
