Low Battery Q&A

Photo Credit: Robin Groulx
Your name:
Brendan - Drummer.

Where are you from?
Washington, DC.

Name of band:
Low Battery.

Who else is in your band? 
Vince - Lead singer, Rhythm guitarist/Bass
Johnny Mac - Lead guitar

How would you describe yourselves and your music?
We are looking to create a monument to rock. We want to being rock back to its roots.

Who are your main influences musically?
We all mutually love blink-182. I think a lot of bands would not be around without them.
Then I like more of the hardcore scene. Vince likes Kanye West/hip hop, and Johnny Mac digs the old school pop-punk and The Get Up Kids

What do you hope to achieve in music?
We want to take over our local scene and reach the airwaves across the US. Some main goals for us right now:
- Get into a studio with a producer
- Get airplay on DC101
- Open for a band at the 930 club

What has been the highlight of your career so far, and why?
We won a battle of the bands back in 2012 and were able to open for Life on Repeat at The Fillmore in Silver Spring, MD. Also selling out a small venue for the first time was a pretty great feeling.

And what’s the moment you want to forget?
We had one show at a battle of the bands at our college that we graduated from. The crowd wasn't into it and were all so young. It was the wrong place and time and we couldn't get the crowd involved.

If you had to pick just one of your songs to represent your music, what would it be and why?
I would say Blondie represents our band's current direction musically. It's our most popular song off our new record. But, Get Away will always remain our mantra as a band. Just like blink is known for Dammit, Low Battery is known for Get Away.

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?
We are representing Washington, DC rock and are ready to take it to the next level in our careers. We are the type of guys who act like we have our own TV show. Seriously, if MTV is reading this, Low Battery would be a hit on reality TV.
