Click here to play a featured podcast, recording before the band went live online. Listen to accompanying music and text, below.
We begin our conversation speaking about how both got involved with the Aloe Vera Project. Orion explains the difference in emotional connection that he gets from playing other people’s music versus his own creations and what steered him towards the latter.
We dive into the different catalysts that brought them into jamming and ultimately forming a band.
We then speak of the different themes portrayed throughout the album such as love, sadness and betrayal. We go into the overall complexities of cathartic moments and the search for its freeing power.
In closing we learn about Aloe Vera’s sound, what keeps them going, and advice for those looking to join a band, themselves.
