      Remo Drive

      with Slow Pulp, Heart To Gold
      Dubbing your debut full-length Greatest Hits might be a bit of a misnomeror, at worst, signs of a serious superiority complexbut theres no bravado when it comes to REMO DRIVE. Instead, the Minnesota-based duos first album for Epitaph Records serves as the pinnacle of their four-plus years as a band up until now.Brothers Erik and Stephen Paulson formed Remo Drive in high school in 2013, inspired by older kids who smoked weed and listened to Title Fight. The pair of wide-eye musicians would find their legs in the emo world, but the songs on Greatest Hitsenveloped in themes of suburban malaise and self-reflectionshape-shift throughout all aspects of alternative rock, paying tribute not only to Midwestern emo heavyweights like American Football and The Promise Ring, but also to 90s grunge and classic rock, among others.Its always going to be about loud guitars and big drums, Erik Paulson says of Remo Drives sound. The best thing for us to do is not worry so much about aesthetic and focus on whatever feels natural with the overarching idea of being a rock n roll band.That innate honesty permeates every area of the bands frenetic, spazzy music, from Eriks lyrics (I just want to be as honest and straight to the point as possible rather than trying to appear smarter than I actually am) to the charming DIY video for Yer Killing Me that features the band sprinting down the streets of their hometown, instruments and all.Its like Remo Driveunlike many bands under their same genre umbrellahavent forgotten that writing and playing music is supposed to be fun. We try to do things with a lot of energy and gusto, Paulson says. I think people can tell that we care a lot. I think our best quality is that we care.But at the same time, the Paulson brothers share a deep passion and desire for improvement. Erik is 20, Stephen 22; theyve got their entire musical lives ahead of them. So while the exuberance and irreverence stands as a hallmark of the music they make now, deep down theyre driven to continue progressing as musicians and songwriters. Intentionally not wanting to do better is dumb, Erik says. There was a thing for a while where emo bands didnt try that hard. Were trying to bring back some of the technique with it. If someones doing your taxes, youd hope they know what theyre doing. If Im making music, I think people listening want me to know what Im doing.So while Greatest Hits serves as the perfect entryway to Remo Drives particular brand of rock, its ultimately a stepping stone to the Paulsons next evolution. But no matter how much things change, the non-negotiable aspects of Remo Drive that have turned heads until now are definitely not going to change.I feel like we dont really have a voice, Erik says. Were always going to end up being different every single album. Our tastes change so much. Were not too concerned about pleasing any one group of people. The things that will be consistent are the energy and the passion. As long as it sounds awesome to us and the songs are good enough, itll be Remo Drive. XXExpect new music from Remo Drive soon.
