Interview | Inherently Lost

What was the beginning point for your music career? How did it all start?

I started taking an interest in music around 14. I remember me and my friends starting a band but none of us could play anything, just draw logos on our notebooks and stuff I guess it started there.

Was there any bumps on the road? What kind of challenges did you have to deal with?

I’ve had plenty of setbacks, you get something going and someone quits, band mates fall off from drugs, the magically disappearing band fund I could go on. That’s why I’m happy to work with inherently lost we’re an amazingly drama free group.

What was the most fulfilling and satisfying moment so far?

The most satisfying moment came after a particular gig I managed to get in a threesome with these two ladies. I still perform at that nursing home once in a while but Peggy and Gertrude haven’t recovered from their hip surgery.

How would you describe the music that you typically create?

We describe it as industrial-core. Mixing the elements of modern heavy “core” music with an industrial edge and a good bit of melody.

What is your creative process like?

Our creative process is old school, just jam it out. Sometimes someone will come down with lyrics and a theme in mind

If you could change anything about the industry, what would it be?

I’d probably say contracts that own your song rights and also if we could all admit that cardi b has absolutely no talent that would be great.

If you were asked to give a piece of advice to upcoming bands, what would that be?

Stay humble, always keep learning and support your fellow acts. If you show up right before your set and leave as soon as you’re done no one’s gonna care about you.

What has been the best performance of your career so far?

That’s a good question but I’d say any outdoor performance is always memorable. There’s something about jamming outside with the sun in your face and that whole vibe, that’s awesome.

If you didn’t become a musician, what would you be doing now?

I’d be a house painter which is also what I do now because I’m poor.

What is new with the band at the moment? What are you currently working on and would like to share with the world?

Inherently lost is a fairly new project for me personally. I’m very happy with the group of musicians I’m working with. We are working on finishing up our album. We just released our first single “unraveling sanity” on all major platforms we’re gonna release a cover of the crue’s red hot soon as a tribute to one of our influences.
