Interns’ first incarnation came to be in 2013 as a side-project between bassist Christian Harris and guitarist Andrew Reinhardt while playing together in the Louisiana-based jazz collective The Telegraph Salesmen, along with the leader of the group, Carter MacFarland, on drums. Many of the songs featured on Vanity Mirror were written during this time period.
The group dissolved in 2014, as Harris and Reinhardt separated geographically. After a three year hiatus, the two found themselves both living in Austin, Texas. With the addition of drummer James Bauer and guitarist Cole McDonnell, the group began to rework and refine the existing material, as well as write new music. The music combines the atmospheric nature of modern post-rock built around a classic psych framework.
Interns recorded their first studio album Vanity Mirror at Earthship Studios in Baton Rouge, with recording engineer and producer Benjamin Livingston. The album features guest musicians Sungkyung Woo, violin, Blayke Weatherford, vibraphone, and Carter MacFarland, keyboards.
Vanity Mirror was released on February 21st, 2017, and is available on all major streaming platforms. A physical release is to follow.
Interns aim to frame the ambient, spacey goodness of post-rock around a structure that is easily digestible for listeners of any background. Like much of their peers, they forego lyrics in an attempt to let their instruments convey their thoughts and emotion.
A combination of retro aesthetics, enduring lyrics and alt-rock grit.
The best music happens when artists refuse to remain stuck in their own comfort zones and creative boxes. Whenever this happens, they are free to give full range to their vision, and they can really come up with something that’s groundbreaking and personable. This is certainly the case here with Tommy Red and his brand new EP release, “I Wanna Be Exploited.”
