Back in the day, I wanted to be a skateboarder. No joke. I was never really good at it but I loved watching skate videos and fantasizing that I was behind the skaters with the camera or something. On family vacations, my brother and I would find local skate shops to check out and our dad would always oblige but it really never went anywhere. When my brother broke his arm on a skateboard, all of those hopes and dreams came to a screeching halt. Well, not really, I still break out the board every once in a while but it’s just for a quick jaunt and nothing more than that. Long story short, hearing and seeing the video for ShortCuts! “Find Us” had me lost in a world of nostalgia. I was in love and was super excited to ask them some more questions about everything from skateboarding to awkward dates.
What’s the most awkward date you’ve ever been on?
They are always awkward when you are an anxiety-riddled mess
What was your first skateboard?
One my friend gave me that had dog shit ground into the grip tape
How would you describe your music to your parents?
Errr you know that machine gun Kelly? He plays punk so do we but nothing like that cunt
What’s your most regrettable tattoo? Or, if you don’t have any- what’s a tattoo you would want if you were to get one?
It’s something I’ve never gotten around to there is always something else to pay for but I’d get a bad religion tattoo somewhere
What’s your favorite method of listening to music (i.e. vinyl, cassette, 8-track, etc.)
I have my own studio so I’m incredibly anal about how I listen to music but you can’t beat the sound that wax gives you
If you could compare yourself to an animal, what would it be and why?
Probably a sloth because they lay about not doing much
Favorite lyrics of all time?
I love all the lyrics and the story in Ten Foot Poles – Old Man
If you were to rob a bank, what would be the song playing in the getaway car as you escape?
Fuck Authority by Pennywise
What’s your favorite venue in Alabama?
I’ve never been
What’s the worst concert you’ve ever been to and why?
Probably watching The Misfits, I’d waited for my whole life to see them and they sucked so bad
What’s one thing I should know before listening to “Find Us”?
The song is about friendship and one half of that friendship burning the bridges until there is no way back
Is that you skateboarding in the video?
It’s not, unfortunately only one of us can actually skate
Sadly, ShortCuts! don’t have any socials that I can point you to but trust me when I say you should check out this two-track 7″ that includes “Find Us”! You can also check the track out below!
