Interview With Brake Loose

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

2019, Dublin – Ireland

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

It was quite hard for me (Alejandro – frontman) to find four proper committed rockers. It took me a few years to solidify a proper line up. Most upcoming musicians here in Dublin are in a few bands at the same time, or cover bands and all they want to do is play and they don’t even know how to create a brand, promote it and build an audience with it in the first place. Or some don’t even see the band as a life priority. 

Being in an upcoming original band is a lot of hard work, putting money out there without excepting any return of investment, so it is a long, long term investment. 

What was the most fulfilling and satisfying moment so far?

Solidifying the new line up.

How would you describe the music that you typically create?

Fresh new modern rock with spoken word poetry. 

Imagine an orgy between The Doors, HIM, Danzig, The Cult, Thin Lizzy, and Guns N’ Roses, the result of that will be us. 

What is your creative process like?

Five minds, five skulls and souls working together to create a piece of art that we are proud of. We incentive each other, we vibrate from each other that’s how we create our music. 

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

That’s a hard question. There are a lot of pros and cons from being in a band as of today – 2022. But, I think we should go back to Vinyl ‘and stop this streaming platforms, as it is very hard nowadays to make a living out of music. 

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

The industry is always changing so I can’t say much about that. But, if you have passion for what you do and you believe in what you do, that along with consistency is all you need to succeed. 

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

Our first sold out show we had last November 2021 at The Workman’s Club Dublin. 

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

I was a professional motocross racer back in Venezuela (Alejandro – Frontman) for almost 10 years so if I was not doing music I’ll probably would be doing that

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

We’ve got a few new banging singles coming out this year alongside few gigs lined up here in Dublin and we are currently working on our debut album, to be out hopefully by the end of the year.
