AJR are some of the hardest working people I've met in this world. They've always had a very different sound than anything out there, which I've loved. It's been hard for them to find "their place" in mainstream, but now they've got a #1 song in Alternative radio and are hoping the pop listeners will love "Sober Up" too!
Adam Jack and Ryan all called me to talk about the new song, and how incredible it was to get a TWEET from one of their idols [Weezer's Rivers Cuomo] about wanting to work together/finish this song. CAN YOU IMAGINE THAT HAPPENING?!? Crazy.
They've also got some hints as to their "important new song" they've been teasing online, and what exactly they mean when they say everyone should "follow the click." It has now become a thought I'll always keep in mind to help motivate me to try something new.
Listen to our convo below, and then let me know what you think of their song!
When I watched this video, I had so many things I wanted to ask them about it... but I'm sad to say we ran out of time before I could. Guess that's the good and bad of talking to people who actually like talking/sharing their thoughts.
