INTERVIEW – THE BAND PERRY

The Band Perry

Pioneer

I interviewed The Band Perry about their new album Pioneer over at Renowned For Sound

EXTRACT:

BT: Kimberly, in the video for If I Die Young you’re holding  a copy of a book of poems by Alfred Lord Tennyson as you float in the boat, which seems to be a homage to floating down a river like the Lady of Shalott. Would you describe yourselves as a band that are especially literary?

KP: Yes, it was a tribute to that, and also to Anne of Green Gables. Anne certainly was one of the characters in literature who I feel helped shape my personality. And yes, I was reading the poem Lady of Shalott around the time I wrote If I Die Young so yes it was definitely an inspiring piece of work…”

  1. Nicely set hook, the reference to Tennyson’s “Lady” in the first paragraph. I miss Nashville, and it’s quite some time since I caught up on the country ‘scene’; hopped over and read the interview. The interplay between the British sensibility and the American always intrigues me, but it’s to your credit as an interviewer that the sense of things being ‘lost in translation’ on both ends was at a minimum. Very enjoyable.
