Interview With Scott Windsor Of Umbrellas

I went and saw Umbrellas live yesterday. Incredible experience. I also got the opportunity to meet Scott beforehand and afterwards and asked him a few questions. This "interview" was conducted on two paper plates.

Me: Is Angels & Demons based on an actual event?
Scott: Based on living in a college town and not trusting the girls that live there.

Me: What was the first step in recording/writing?
Scott: I spent all winter writing by myself, then I took the songs to the other guys.

Me: Favorite food? (Obligatory)
Scott: Steak and mashed potatoes.

Me: Is there a central theme to Illuminare?
Scott: No central theme. Just a "brighter" outlook on life.

Me: How have your friends and parents affected your music?
Scott: I write a lot of lyrics based on friends experiences. Parents - not so much.

Me: What have you been listening to recently?
Scott: The new Cursive, Muse, and Keane.


That was undoubtedly the most profound interview you have, or will, ever read. :D But, really, it was awesome to meet Scott and he sounded FLAWLESS live. It was really awesome. I also saw: New London Fire (pretty good stuff!), Down To Earth Approach (not bad!), The Forecast (meh...), and theAudition (ugh). I left in the middle of theAudition. Saw two songs of theirs at Warped Tour, also. I just get this vibe that they are there because they "jumped on the bandwagon". They're just trendy, I guess. Can't really respect them, much. :P

I'll go over what I think of some CD's in a bit, and revisit a few older ones.

Listen To: Hopewood
