Two and a Half Questions with the Abbasi Brothers

Everyone always wants to know about artist’s influences - especially in cinematic music like this. What are yours?
While the full list of influences is very lengthy, our major influences include the Pixies, Archive, Tom Petty, Jesus and Mary Chain, Nancy Wilson (composer), Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Wu Tang Clan, and the Fugees. Basically, music that paints a picture.

Tell us a bit about your work for film.
Film making and film scoring has been a passion of ours from the very beginning. Our goal is to work with filmmakers and producers in the future, on projects ranging from scoring to directing.

What are you nostalgic for?
The songs we make are attempts to isolate a feeling or moment that we experienced while growing up, that affected us in either a profound way, or in a gentler more subtle manner. For example, leaving home for the very first time, or an exciting moment we had with people we once knew. |
