Got the chance to hang out on the tour bus with Ronan Harris, legendary music producer and vocalist for the band VNV Nation.
Could not have been a nicer or more interesting guy. The show was incredible, and I found myself spaz-dancing despite my best efforts to keep dignified composure (seriously…I was an idiot out there).
VNV Nation are an Irish/English futurepop band. I caught them on the last stop of the first leg of their national headline tour after the release of their new album, Automatic.
Automatic was released in the U.S. on October 25, 2011. It is their eighth studio album. Harris describes process of recording this album, as well as its themes and the future of the band, in the interview below.
Emily is an over-enthusiastic lover of music, books, movies, fashion, and culture in general. Her love of music spans across all genres (what is a genre anymore? she waxes poetic to herself), though she was nursed on true punk and will never understand “redneck country” music – tractors are not and cannot be sexy. Emily currently lives in Brooklyn, NY and considers herself to be a great wit, though she is still waiting on validation from a credible source.
