Cheree Fill The Darkenin Heart Questionnaire

Darkenin Heart

What do you consider to be the darkest piece of music you’ve ever heard?
Vanessa: Andy Stott “Collapse.”

Zach: Sunn O))) “It Took The Night To Believe” had a big influence on me in that way.

Jordan: Probably a song from the newer batch of Nick Cave stuff, like Skeleton Tree or Ghosteen.

How would you characterize your own music?
Zach: Dark. Lots of feedback, noise.

Jordan: Industrial and noisy. A lot of the time I think we’re trying to be smart while not sounding like we’re smart.

What are your musical aspirations?
Vanessa: To have a music video out would be cool and to connect with more visual artists who can transcribe our sound in their own way.

Zach: Simply having the opportunity to play music and connect through music.

Jordan: Make more stuff that I like and play it in as many places as I can while I still like it.

What are your main musical inspirations?
Mikayla: Currently it’s Disembodied and also a lot of early country, like Loretta Lynne and Johnny Paycheck.

Zach: For this, a lot of underground and alternative music from the 80s and 90s. Godflesh, Killing Joke, Sonic Youth, and early Swans.

Jordan: I think we all gravitate towards a big sound that goes in and out of harmony. The big ones are probably Sonic Youth and Nine Inch Nails and a lot of hardcore.

What are your main goals in life?
Mikayla: To live on the river or retire on the river.

Vanessa: To live until I die.

Zach: A point of discussion in therapy for me.

Jordan: Make more time to create music and art and connect with people.

What motivates you to create?
Jordan: I think it’s something you have to do to take care of your own mental health, if you’re the type of person who needs an outlet for expression like this. It also helps if other people are into it and they want you to keep doing it.

Zach: Aside from being an outlet of expression, the prospect of being able to connect with others.

Are you more of an early bird or a night owl?
Vanessa: Night owl.

Zach: Early owl. Creature of the night.

Mikayla: Night time bird over here.

Jordan: I used to be a night owl but now I’m a big morning person.

Besides music, what other art forms would you like to explore?
Vanessa: I really like film, so I’d like to learn more about that. I want to learn how to sew as well.

Zach: I recently had the opportunity to do some metalwork and I enjoyed that. Maybe some visual art. Who knows?

Mikayla: Probably photography.

Jordan: Collage, design, walking in the woods, and talking people into quitting their jobs.

Which is the very first record that had a big impact on you?
Mikayla: Off the top of my head it would be Loveless. I remember starting to listen to them and it’ll never not be good.

Vanessa: My parents listened to a lot of Black Sabbath and Dr. Dre.

Zach: I remember buying the first AFI album on CD and my dad making me return it to the mall. Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables by Dead Kennedys was a big influence for sure.

Jordan: The two that I was first allowed to buy when I was really young were Iron Maiden The Number of The Beast and Nine Days The Madding Crowd (the band that did, “This is the story of a girl...”). Both had a huge impact in different ways.

What is the best decade for music?
Mikayla: I feel like it’s between the 90s and early 70s.

Vanessa: Depends on the genre.

Zach: My favorite stuff is mostly from the 80s and 90s, but I like the 70s, too.

Jordan: This one seems pretty good.

What do your future plans include?
Mikayla: To tour soon.

Vanessa: I want to travel abroad sometime soon.

Zach: Ideally traveling more. Being able to create more music and art.

Jordan: Playing more shows and writing more songs.
