Bands, sounds and lyrics
Meagan Meehan (MM): How did you come to music, especially songwriting, and what inspired you?
Alex Gruenburg (AG): It’s weird because I didn’t really get into music until I was about fifteen. In fact, I remember looking at an electric guitar and being totally puzzled as to how it works. I grew up in a very small town and there wasn’t much to do. So a group of my friends and I decided to start a group. We didn’t even have any instruments. I think I became the songwriter by default since no one else wanted to sing. This kind of adolescent angst still inspires me today.
MM: What are your favorite songs and lyrics so far, and why?
AG: i love the song and Lyrics on The Kinks Arthur and or the decline of the British Empire. It was originally supposed to be a music-type show made for the BBC, but they dropped it. I would have loved to see it. The Kinks are a big inspiration to me.
MM: How did you go about forming a bandaged and why did you choose the name âBetter Behaviorâ?
Discuss this news on Eunomia
AG: I usually only find playful friends. Even if it can quickly get complicated. The best behavior was my nickname in elementary school. It was ironic.
MM: How would you describe your unique ring and how did you build such a huge fan base?
AG: Right now we call ourselves garage pop, but tomorrow who knows. I believe that an artist should be able to change his sound as he sees fit.
I like the term “fluid genre” to describe us. Play great music and people will know you by word of mouth.
Inspiration, Brooklyn and Entertainment Goals
MM: How much Brooklyn inspire you as a whole?
AG: Honestly, it’s hard to say now. You know the saying “It’s not what it used to be” but more often than not the people here are the greatest. inspiration for me here in Brooklyn.
MM: What were some of your most memorable concerts and what can attendees expect from your live show?
AG: The opening of The Darkness was quite memorable. They are great guys. When it comes to our show, I really believe that expectations ruin experiences for maybe just coming with an open mind.
MM: What are your biggest goals for your future in the musical entertainment, do you have any new interesting shows and / or songs coming up, and what else would you like to mention?
AG: I would like to collaborate on a song with Kayne West. It would be quite magical. We have a new single coming out, I think you’ll love it. It’s more of a return to our rock & roll roots. I think as a culture we have to beware of streaming. In some ways, unlimited streaming i.e. Spotify and Apple Music is a bit like eating at the buffet. You can have whatever and as much as you want. Can you imagine eating at the buffet every day? It would be horrible! Everything would start to taste bland and you would lose all appreciation. No one says their favorite restaurant is a buffet. They want a particular dish (aka, album) from a particular chef (i.e. artist). I think the more we move towards streaming, the more we will become disenchanted with music. We have to be careful with this.
