We Should Be Dead Interview: Ireland's Next Pop Sensation
We Should Be Dead is an Irish pop band now living in Los Angeles. I interviewed them here in Austin during South By Southwest (SXSW) in March. Their music reminded so much of the old Go-Go’s albums I listened to as a kid, only slightly grittier in sound. We talked about coming together back in Limerick, relationship lyrics and even marriage proposals in Alpine,Texas. We Should Be Dead is a group you should definitely give a listen to and get to know.
