Interview: Mutemath Talk Album 4 & Their Terrifying Encounters With “Drop Bears”
American alt-rockers Mutemath were in the country recently, tearing apart various clubs on their national tour. Luckily for us, all 4 of the guys from the band – Paul Meany, Roy Mitchell-Cardenas, Darren King and Todd Gummerman – were awesome enough to swing by Music Feeds Studio for a yarn.
Reminiscing about the creative process behind Blood Pressure, the lead single from the band’s latest album, 2011’s Odd Soul, the conversation veers onto Mutemath’s next album, which frontman Meany surmises will be an “identifiable cousin” to Odd Soul.
However, talk of Mutemath’s fourth studio LP is quickly sidetracked as the band tries to get to the bottom of Meany’s life-and-death encounter with the mythical Australian drop bear. As Mutemath try to sort fact from fiction, the conversation soon enough turns to kangaroo genitals, and there’s no turning back from there.
