When it involves being a part of a neighborhood music scene, new bands begin up in a number of methods. They can begin with a number of younger whippersnappers unleashing their vitality, a singer-songwriter rounding out their sound with a band and a few seasoned vets who’ve recognized one another perpetually starting one thing contemporary. The Nurse suits within the latter class with Northern Rhode Island musicians Chris Quiray on lead guitar, Kyle Siner on bass, Jesse Desorcy on drums and Rich Polseno on rhythm guitar and lead vocals rounding out the lineup. Together they exhibit a excessive octane rock strategy that blisters the senses. Over the course of this 12 months, folks will be capable to embrace that feeling with a collection of releases the quartet has in retailer.
I just lately had a chat with Polseno, Siner and Quiray in regards to the origins of the band, having a collective songwriting mentality, the fluidity of the lyrics and some singles that’ll be launched adopted by an album.
Rob Duguay: What made you guys need to begin this challenge?
Rich Polseno: We’ve all performed music with one another for fairly a while, a pair many years now, in varied iterations and we all the time knew that we’d get again to taking part in music collectively once more. Where this explicit band originated from although was when my solo album Molts got here out round 4 years in the past, I had recorded it acoustically with a band in a studio in Texas and I needed to have an album launch celebration the place I carried out the songs with a full band. I requested Kyle and Chris to be concerned and be a backing band for that after which we proceeded to jot down new music collectively, in order that’s the origin of this.
RD: From listening to the music you will have recorded up to now, there’s positively a energetic rock sound. To be sincere, it jogs my memory quite a lot of Chris’ outdated band Indiana Handshake on the subject of the vocal deliveries, the quantity of depth and the guitar constructions. Which influences did you guys draw from when it got here to crafting the sort of sound? Any particular bands or any particular musicians?
Chris Quiray: I believe one factor that’s actually cool about this band is that the sound got here very organically. It got here from every of our particular person influences and at no level can I recall anyone saying “I want us to sound like this.” It was extra simply pure, inventive taking part in off of one another after which seeing what would occur and seeing what we appreciated. We had been capable of finding a collective sound that all of us made.
Kyle Siner: We very a lot are a type of band the place Rich or Chris or Jesse or myself could have an concept and we are going to hammer into one thing that all of us agree sounds nice.
RD: Rich, as a lyricist I discover that you simply actually have an affinity for enjoying round with the English language and sticking in phrases that you simply wouldn’t assume match inside a track at first nevertheless it someway does. With this challenge and the strategy you will have with songwriting, how had been you in a position to have the 2 meet collectively whereas additionally having it’s completely different?
RP: I don’t assume I consider it that in a different way. I proceed to be impressed by literature and legend and delusion, these issues are inclined to encourage me rather a lot on the subject of writing lyrics. I suppose with this band I do know that I is likely to be shouting the lyrics, I is likely to be yelling them so there’s room for vocal feelings. In considered one of our songs, “Don’t Buy In”, I don’t know precisely what I did nevertheless it type of seems like “hi-ya!” and each time it performs it seems like I’m performing some form of karate chop. It’s not like after we had been writing these songs I believed to myself that because it’s a track for The Nurse’s materials I’m going to jot down it any in a different way.
I simply sit down and write, the lyrics come and that’s just about it. I often begin with some type of picture or some type of concept lyrically, like an emblem or a second in time, and I begin to write from there.
RD: On January 14th, you guys shall be releasing your debut single “Don’t Bemoan” Where was the only recorded?
RP: We recorded it at No Boundaries Studios in North Kingstown with Chris Piquette and it was an exquisite expertise. We’ve carried out 5 songs there up to now and we’re going to be heading again there later this month and the next month to do one other batch of 5. On social media we’ve been posting promotional takes, behind the scenes form of issues with among the audio combined in. We do have concepts for some music movies ultimately however at this level we don’t have one set for any of the songs.
RD: By recording 10 songs in whole, it’s type of apparent that there’s going to be an album ultimately following up the only. When can we count on it to come back out? At some level later within the 12 months?
CQ: I believe the strategy we’re going to take is that we’re going to launch a collection of singles from the album after which the complete album shall be launched sooner or later both in the course of the center of or later within the 12 months.
RD: Lots of bands have been releasing singles over the previous few years as an alternative of EPs or albums. Just a few established ones informed me how they view it as a extra economical solution to go so it’s cool that you simply’re main it up with a collection of tracks quite than placing it out abruptly.
CQ: Exactly, we would like to have the ability to use it to have a relentless stream of content material and new issues we might be introducing to folks whereas letting them digest every track. We’re actually happy with them and we don’t need folks to only take heed to it as soon as and transfer on.
RP: It additionally was vital for us to ensure that it was an album. These 10 songs are collectively for a cause, all of them work collectively when it comes to how we wrote them, what they allude to, how they really feel and the way they sound. Even extra vital than how we launch it, whether or not it trickles out or not, is that it capabilities as an album.
