Artist Of The Week: Q&A With Basement Revolver


Hi MBC fam and welcome to our second week of the Artist Of The Week: Q&A series.

Chrisy Hurn who is the vocalist and guitarist of Basement Revolver reached out to me recently, to have a listen to her band’s music and the possibility to publish their music on my blog.

Basement Revolver consists of the three members Chrisy Hurn (vocalist/guitarist), Brandon Monroe (Drums) and Nimal Agalawatte (Bass/Synth) who are from Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. Their genre is a mixture of Alternative/Indie Rock, Post-Rock, and Shoegaze.

Their music takes me back to the 90s with bands such as Garbage, Super Jesus, and Killing Heidi just to name a few.

So glad she reached out because this band is so talented!!!

And if you don’t believe me, check out their latest single below.

Basement Revolver – Johnny Pt.2 (Audio)

Johnny Pt.2 is from the upcoming EP “Agatha”. It is a continuation from their previous EP “Johnny”. Agatha is due for release 21st July 2017.

To find out what the song is about, well you just have to read this exclusive interview to find out ;)

Chrisy talks about the band, past experiences, life, the meaning behind their latest song and album and what’s next in store for the band in the coming months etc.

Please welcome my special guest Chrisy!!

Please tell the readers who are and where you’re from?
Chrisy: We are from Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.

How old were each of you, when you knew you wanted to become an artist?
Chrisy: I was probably around 13 years old when I learned the guitar because I wanted to write songs.

Who was your inspiration, to get into music?
Chrisy: I am honestly not sure. I just started writing songs when I was thirteen, not really sure what brought it on.

What has been the biggest highlight throughout your career to date?
Chrisy: I think it has just been the ability to open for some bands that have meant a lot to us. One big one was when we opened for “We are the City”. Overall, just the fact that we get to keep making music is a highlight.

From your experience in the music industry, what kind of advice would you give to other artists who want to get into the industry?
Chrisy: To be honest we are just figuring it out for ourselves. Just keep working hard, and be kind - there is nothing worse than arrogance.

Your latest EP “Agatha”, what was the process? And which song is your favourite?
Chrisy: The process is different for every song. Sometimes, songs come out of jamming with the full band (those are usually the best songs) and sometimes they come out of going through my old poetry notebooks. It is hard to pick a favourite because every song on the EP has been important to me for different reasons.

Johnny Pt.2 is the new single off the EP, what is the meaning behind it?
Chrisy: Johnny Pt. 2 is a continuation of Johnny. I wrote it when I was trying to move on from our breakup. There was still a lot I wanted to say and writing was the best way that I knew how to.

Your EP is to be released next month, what should the new and current fans expect?
Chrisy: Expect something a little different from last time, but not too different. All I can say is that we feel more confident in our sound than we used to and we are really happy with the outcome.

In the coming months, what should we look forward to?
Chrisy: A lot of things are in the works right now, most of them are secrets at this point, but expect to hear from us :)

And, what would you like to say to your fans?
Chrisy: Thank you so so much for your support. We wouldn’t be anywhere without you, thank you for listening, sharing, and being excited about our music. We honestly are so thankful.
