SXSW 2014: ††† x Vinyl Video

By  |  1 Comment

“YOU GET TO INTERVIEW CHINO?!?!?!”

That was pretty much the response from everyone I told that I was going to interview ††† (Crosses) at South by Southwest this year.

You may mostly know Chino Moreno as Deftones‘ lead singer/guitarist, but if your knowledge of this dude stops there, allow me to educate you.  Deftones isn’t even close to being the only thing Moreno is involved in.

††† is the downbeat, softer (notice I said softer, not soft – there’s still plenty of hard edge for your liking) side-project of Moreno and Far guitarist Shaun Lopez. And if you haven’t heard them, get all up over it on the immediate.

We caught up with ††† streetside at SXSW and screamed over the crowd at each other about their sound, their SXSW experience and what they’re getting into after the festival. Check out the Vinyl Video 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.
