Song River for YabYum: Which one of you opened the playpen door, crawled over to the instruments against the wall and started rocking it out in diapers? (Sorry, I had this vision of you blokes as the babies for a moment in the TV cartoon, Rugrats.)
Divided Minds: This is an awesome visual… We all started in music at a young age. We all met each other at music workshops when we were around 11 and 12 years old. Josh wrote “Frightened” when he was 12. However, Sean Collins (lead singer) most likely would have opened the playpen door.
Divided Minds is the ultimate energy drink. Where do the power pop influences come from?
DM: Our songs are definitely power pop in structure, but the words “power pop” sounds awkward and funny. We do not want to label ourselves “power pop” because we are influenced by all types of music. Our influences come from A Day to Remember, Three Days Grace, Green Day and My Chemical Romance.
Are you serious about what you want to do and where you want your music to take you?
