♠About “As The City Rumbles Underneath”:
♠As The City Rumbles Underneath: “Interview With Ashton Price”:
1) Can you introduce As The City Rumbles Underneath briefly?.
AP: As the City Rumbles Underneath is a band or duo that is comprised of myself and Cat Forsley. We’ve been together since the fall of 2012.
2) Why did you choose that name for the band?.
AP: We were really going over a bunch of different options, some of which involved just using our own names. I personally didn’t like that as it made the project sound like a bad pub band. I came up with “As the City Rumbles Underneath” when I was picking Cat up at the subway station one day. As the subway rolled away the ground shook and the name came to me.
3) Which are your biggest musical influences?.
AP: For myself Depeche Mode is a big influence along with Leonard Cohen and Slowdive to name a few. I can’t answer directly for Cat but I know she grew up listening to Madonna and loves Goldfrap. One of the reasons we work so well is that I have a tendency to make things slower and darker and she always wants to make things more upbeat. We both have a love of pop songwriting though so it’s a good mix.
4) Are you planning to record an LP adding all your singles and remix versions and when?.
AP: I’ve thought a lot about that and one idea I had kicking around was taking our yearly output each year and making that the “album”. I even thought of making a very limited short run of cds like that too. I guess the end of the year is coming quickly so I might have to get on that quickly if we’re going to do it.
5) Which are the topics of your songs And/or videos?.
AP: The songs are generally about love and freedom. “When Stars Collide” also had some pretty heavy astronomy/physics overtones to it which was kind of fun. One of the things I’m most proud of with this band is the way we’ve packaged some pretty intelligent lyrics (in my opinion) with some very catchy music and melodies. I think some people could listen to the music and dismiss us as a pop act but if you really listen there is a message there.
6) When are you shooting your next video and which is the song´s name?.
AP: Next video is another Q&A video and then after that the next music video will be for our song “I Am You Are”. We haven’t decided whether to do a video for either the remix, the original or both. Right now I’m leaning towards doing it for the remix first but I guess we’ll see.
7) Any other project/suggestion you want to mention here?.
AP: Aside from our music project which I think is safe to say is our main musical priority I just released an EP on my own called “Lonely Nights” and Cat is planning on releasing an audio book of prose on November 1st.
