Interview with Knifeplay at SXSW 2023

Mason Vore, Music Director

WDBM got to catch up with dream pop/shoegaze band Knifeplay on the heels of their latest album, Animal Drowning, at SXSW. I first saw them perform the day before the interview, on March 16, after a storm warning delayed their set. However tiring it was to huddle into the small inside of this bar for two hours, the weather ended up setting a perfect environment for their brand of stormy music that took hold in the crowd when they did go on stage. We got to talking about fellow Philadelphia bands they enjoy, non-music art forms that inspire them and other instruments and sounds they’d like to explore in future projects. Listen to Animal Drowning and tap on into the interview!
