Vocalist and Guitarist of Double Lined Minority, Eddie Salazar answered some of our questions about the band and what they are about. If you haven’t heard about DLM before, I suggest you have a listen because they are one of the best up and coming bands out of Australia right now!
How did you guy form a band and when did you start?
Eddie: We have been DLM since 2009. Cameron and I met each other in a school play. We had a jam backstage and decided to form a band.
What genre do you consider the band to fit into?
Eddie: I’m not a fan of labels… I would say DLM is a rock band. We like catchy stuff so I guess we’re a pop rock band, but again we aren’t 5SOS. Some would say pop punk…but we don’t sound like The Story So Far or Neck Deep (The ‘pop punk trend’ at the moment). Maybe Alternative Pop Punk?
Who are some of your influences and favourite bands?
Eddie: Individually we all aspire from different areas of music. I love bands like Foo Fighters and Fall Out Boy, Cameron and Blair love their rap music and Jack loves his heavy and chilled music. In the end it kind of influences the sound we are trying to achieve… maybe aha
What musical aspirations do you hold for the band in 2015?
Eddie: We are releasing our new EP soon, so we’re really excited for that. We’ve got heaps planned for it and we hope to travel again.
What has been the bands biggest highlight or achievement so far?
Eddie: Playing Big Day Out a couple of times, but the most fun has been selling out a couple of our headlining tour shows. Feels great!
What is instore for DLM in the next few months?
Eddie: Next few months involve new music and shows and that’s what matters!
