The Cuckoos Interview
I welcomed The Cuckoos to Revelator #247 to talk about the band’s latest single “Heartbreak Paradise”.
The band was in a rehearsal during out interview and we talked about developing their sound and performing live. We also talked about fun band names and the band put together a short comedy parody titled ‘Quality Vomit” It’s always fun to talk with band but it’s even more fun to allow the bands to show their personality and share their voice on many different topics including a fantastic sense of humor.
The Cuckoos were formed in 2014 by lead vocalist/keyboardist, Kenneth Frost, and lead guitarist/backing vocalist, Dave North. To flesh out their lineup, North introduced Frost to a pair of his longtime friends, including powerhouse drummer Cole Koenning and bassist Eric Ross. Together, despite their young ages, the four musicians have quickly amassed a body of work that evokes a nostalgic classic-rock sound, yet remains fresh and innovative.
The band's self-titled debut EP was released in April 2017 to praise from Relix, Glide Magazine and Pancakes & Whiskey, and hit #53 on NACC Radio 200, #13 on NACC Radio 200 Adds and #34 on FMQB Alt Spec Albums. The success of the EP also helped make possible a distribution deal with Republic of Music, a two-week tour of the UK, a show in New York City, their first-ever Mexico dates and a set at Bahidora Festival.
