Welcome to the latest “New Year New Interview” with Pointless of New Jersey. They have released new music this month so check them out on Spotify and YouTube. In the words of cool kids everywhere, they’re pretty dope. In the meantime, take a peek at their interview right here.
What was the best thing to happen in 2019?
The release of our new song and video for “Half “Empty.”
What are you looking forward to in 2020?
Writing new music, playing shows
Where was your first concert as a fan? As a performer?
First Union Center (1998?) to see Bruce Springsteen with my dad. As a performer, my first real show was at some cabin out in Tom’s River, NJ when I was a freshman in high school, playing in a skate thrash band called Digression. I did not play another show until I was 23 with Hot Trash.
Do you think that there’s an alternate reality? If so, what is the alternate you doing?
I think there are several alternative realities. In most of the them, the alternate me is still probably watching Seinfeld and playing music. But maybe in one of them I am an architect or a chef.
New Year’s Resolutions. Yay or Nay?
Nay. Shouldn’t take until the beginning of the year to start in on bettering yourself. Every day is a clean slate and a gift. Do the best you can. Do the most you can. And don’t be afraid.
What have been the best musical holiday moments in your life?
Hard to say. Personally, I feel “musically”, we tend to slow down around the holidays to be around our families and take a breather from the hustle of band life within our real lives, jobs, and other life commitments.
Favorite holiday song?
Dominick the donkey
Least favorite holiday song?
I guess maybe Alvin and chipmunks Christmas I could do without.
What do you want people to know about your music?
That it’s for everybody. We just want to be there, whether you need us or not. Music was always there for me/us. We want to be there for you. The songs, the words and feelings from them are real. When someone tells me a specific song of ours is helping them through something, there is no greater gift in the world than to hear that.
