AP.net Interview: fun.

Posted by: Jonathan Bautts (02/20/13)
Our new interview with the two-time Grammy winning fun. can be found here.
Thereís a lot of stuff weíve done this year and weíve gotten really good at just shutting off. Thereís some things that are too big to even think about, and you get to the point in your head where all you can think about while youíre up there is when you used to do really small shows. Now itís the Grammys, but itís still the same thing. The environment is the same. Itís the same emotions. I play guitar the same way, Nate sings the same way, so itís really important in those moments to treat it no different than like playing a club show.

Happy for the success these guys have achieved.

Don't like the music, but that's besides the point. Good work.

So first off, thanks for reaching out to us. That means a lot.

You know what? Going through the Grammy stuff, we’ve been getting calls from everyone. We don’t want to talk to any press, so I just told my manager, “Can we just talk to AP?” You’re the people that’s always been covering us.

Nice! Well is there anything particular on your mind?

Just with all the Grammy stuff, I’d rather talk to you guys about it than anyone else.

Glad to see them excited to do an interview with AP. Give these guys credit for trying not to let success go to their head. I like the fact they are willing to switch up their successful sound for a new album. All four full lengths from Nate between The Format and Fun. have their own sound. I'd put Interventions on top, then Some Nights second. I'm not looking to rank his albums, but I do think it's interesting that the time and different group members of his albums hasn't been the biggest difference, more his choice of musical direction for what he's writing...I think.

love the interview, love how the band is not letting the success get to their heads. Do feel bad that they seem worn out from the non-stop touring though. The whole success story has been an enjoyable ride to accompaign.
