Needle Q&A

Name of band: 

Where are you from? 
The desert and the coast of California.

Who is in your band?  
Steve Beck and Julie C.

How would you describe yourselves? 
Minimalist ethereal.

Who are your main influences musically? 
Portishead, Cowboy Junkies, The Shirelles, Low.

What do you hope to achieve in music? 
To capture songs and sounds as they flit around our heads and record at least some of their beauty.

What has been the highlight of your career so far, and why? 
We feel fortunate that we're able to create some music that people listen and respond to. That's a major highlight for us.

And what’s the moment you want to forget? 
This has been a journey that we are happy to take and hope to continue as long as we can. We really have no regrets.

If you had to pick just one of your songs to represent your music, what would it be and why? 
Each song we create represents Needle in some way and the answer to this question can change day-to-day. However if we have to pick one it would probably be "Oceans" from our latest EP Saint Timothy's. And while we don't start off writing a song based on certain criteria, we do feel this song has a lot of elements found throughout our music.  

Where can we listen to it?
