Listen to the new song from The Unknowns – Decadence
Tell us about where you are from and how you got to this position today.
We are from Broomall, PA, a town outside of Philadelphia. Starting as friends we shared the same interest in music and decided to start a band, The Unknowns.
What do you have coming up? What are some of the new projects we can expect to see?
We have a demo out now, working on a full length album while making some changes within the band, and playing bars around the upper Darby area. We expect to be recording by summer.
Tell us more about the current song you are promoting to everyone.
Decadence is one of our first songs, that is all we know about it.
How does your music separate yourself from other artists and bands out there?
Our music does not necessarily follow any specific genre and we try to capture a certain feeling within each song.
Tell us about one of the hardest challenges you had to face in the industry?
The biggest challenge is keeping up with the music equipment, it is expensive and unreliable.
What was one of the biggest set backs in your career and how did you bounce back?
Writer’s block. Also it is frustrating when ideas clash, but we just keep on playing until a song makes sense. They tend to write themselves if you just go with it.
What are some things artists need to be careful of?
Be careful of criticism, not everyone is going to like what you are doing, but you can’t let that hold you back.
What suggestions do you have for other artists like yourself?
Don’t do it for the money and play what you want not what people want to hear, or you will not enjoy yourself.
What is one of your favorite ways to promote yourself and your music?
Playing live shows. Playing live is the best way to get into it and get fans and is the whole point of playing in the first place.
