[INTERVIEW] Maybe The Moon – Hammers See Nails
Over the weekend I got to talking with the fresh faces of Maybe The Moon about life, love and their newest release, “Hammers See Nails.” Bay Area, CA-based Alex Lasner and Karmen Kimball were an absolute riot to chat with, totally game for my intimate and mildly-inappropriate questions. They left nothing unanswered or off the table.
I’m a sucker for love, and damn — these two got it.
Hey guys! Thanks for taking the time to sit down and chat with us. Having a cup of black coffee in NYC, so gotta ask — how do you take yours in California? Better yet… Alex, how does Karmen take her coffee? Careful how you answer…I love your story just as much as I love your music. First off, you met at a party on the day the world was suppose to end. Who approached whom first? I mean, #zerofucks at the point, right? What did you have to lose?It must have been a great first night, seeing you got engaged just a few weeks later. Would you say you believe in love at first sight? Or love at first….. ?Karmen, I’ve known a guy I would have said “yes” to if he had proposed days after our meeting. I’m sure all girls do. What made — and makes — Alex different? How’d you get so lucky?There is something really special about couples who create together. I think their work has more meaning. How did you know music was the path you wanted to take together?Take me through your creative process. Do you each have set roles? Or do you take a more collaborative approach?We know the story behind your first release, “Two Birthdays.” What’s “Hammers See Nails” all about? Though you’re two lovers making music, the stories you share through song seem a bit heartbroken.You’re in the studio now working on a batch of singles to be released over the course of 2015. This newest release is a complete departure from your first — should we expect something totally different next?You guys are great! How about leaving The Most Definitely page with one last thought until we speak again. Whatever comes to your mind first — go!
