Listen to the new song from Whineberries – Butterfly Healing
Tell us about where you are from and how you got to this position today.
We are from Austin, Texas and we have been playing music for years in various bands and projects of all genres. We are brothers that have finally come together as a duo to put out indie rock music.
What do you have coming up? What are some of the new projects we can expect to see?
We have shows coming up at venues around Austin such as The Red Eyed Fly and The Carousel Lounge. We plan on playing heavily in Austin and surrounding areas. Eventually we plan on recording another demo with Tim Curry from Tim Curry Productions located in Austin, Texas.
Tell us more about the current song you are promoting to everyone.
The current song we are promoting is called “Butterfly Healing.” It was recorded at Tim Curry Productions. Critics have said it has a “dance” feel to it. It is an upbeat song with that indie rock feel to it. It is about girls who wear high heels and got their nails done and act like they don’t want to be bothered. We bother them anyway because that’s really what they want! It’s a fun song for sure and a crowd-pleaser.
How does your music separate yourself from other artists and bands out there?
We use elements from all types of music if you give a real good listen. A lot of people say it sounds indie, but then some say punk. Others have said 80′s. Some say they hear country. We let the fans decide what it sounds like. We play what we feel and hope they like it.
Tell us about one of the hardest challenges you had to face in the industry?
Living in Austin, there are so many bands. The real challenge is standing out among all the bands and getting heard by everyone. At the end of the day, we all respect each other and what we are all here to do, and that’s play music.
What was one of the biggest set backs in your career and how did you bounce back?
Me and my brother took a long hiatus from music due to personal life issues that came up. Now it has felt like the perfect time to come together to start being creative.
What are some things artists need to be careful of?
Definitely get your music and name registered in some way.
What suggestions do you have for other artists like yourself?
Honestly, it would be practice, practice, practice. It really does help to get stage-ready. Get your ideas down and work to construct them well into a song. Also, music is infinite, you can always learn something new.
What is one of your favorite ways to promote yourself and your music?
Nowadays it would definitely have to be online. Social media plays a big part in promotion. Also here in Austin, passing out flyers is still a big thing to do. Uploading music to any site you can think of is the way to go. Make CD’s and pass them out to your friends. Anything helps.
