Here Comes The Airplane Q&A

Your name: 
Andrew John Voller.

Where are you from? 
Providence, Rhode Island, USA.

Name of band: 
Here Comes The Airplane.

Who else is in your band? 
Nick Greenhalge.

How would you describe yourselves and your music? 
We play rock music with elements of indie, punk, hardcore, and pop. We have no label, no distribution, and no drummer! We formed in 2010 and recently (2015) re-recorded our early demos into a full-length debut album. We did it all ourselves and the result was a raw, no frills, rock record. We feel that this type of sound is missing in popular music today, with most artists or bands being over polished and over produced. 

Who are your main influences musically? 
NOFX, Alkaline Trio, Huey Lewis And The News, Genesis, The Police.

What do you hope to achieve in music? 
We hope that we can inspire people to see the beauty in simplicity. Our goal is to make you happy and make you sad. We hope to make you laugh and make you cry. We want to make you feel alive.

What has been the highlight of your career so far, and why? 
Recording our debut album after years of sitting on the original demo material. And doing it all on our own.

And what’s the moment you want to forget? 
The years we let lapse before releasing our material.

If you had to pick just one of your songs to represent your music, what would it be and why? 
Let's Settle This On The Soccer Field. Musically it represents the simplicity and raw power of our sound. Lyrically it balances feelings of depression and hopelessness with the desire to start anew and leave the negativity behind while moving forward into a new situation.

Where can we listen to it? 

Where can we find out more about your music?

Anything else you’d like to say about your music that I forgot to ask? 
You forgot to ask us what our favorite flower is. Roses or Violets? The answer is neither. We prefer birds of paradise.
