Interview With Steele
Steele is multi-instrumentalist who writes, records and produces his music from his bedroom in Brooklyn, New York. His poetic lyrics layered
up-tempo drums are truly pure indie bliss. Think seeing your favorite indie band, standing in the middle of the room, the room is smoky and filled with
people swaying, falling in love. TRUE. INDIE. BLISS. You may recognize him from playing drums in local rock band, *The Britanys*
Sofa King Cool caught up with Steele and we talked about his upcoming release, current singles, his process for making music, influences from NYC, and balancing out both gigs
You’ve got to love a quartet that calls itself “the worst band in Bushwick” in its Instagram bio. The Britanys’ 2018 mixtape, 1-833-IDK-HTBA [I Don’t Know How To Be Alone], was a triumph for the band, which has been around since 2013. Although frequently compared to The Strokes (the fate of any indie-rock guitar band in the five boroughs), there’s more of a Sheffield swagger to The Britanys’ sound: “When I’m With You” or “I Don’t Know How to Be Alone” both recall The Last Shadow Puppets or Arctic Monkeys. But The Britanys’ lyrics have weight, too, tackling loneliness and the wasteland of technology in America.
