Labeled lo-fi shoegaze, retro noise-pop and post-modern doo-wop; guitarist Joe Trainor from Baltimore’s WILDHONEY understands how the band’s unique blend of styles defies easy categorization. Citing an eclectic mess of musical influences ranging from the Shangri-La’s to Cocteau Twins and early Madonna, Wildhoney shines most when least predictable, shifting gears and fusing genres to make for an amazing live show. MAXIMUM INK had the opportunity to pose a few questions to Mr. Trainor about their upcoming gig opening up day two of FRZN Fest 2016, January 15th at Madison’s High Noon Saloon and here’s what he had to say.
MAXIMUM INK: What do you think of when you think of Madison, WI?
JOE TRAINOR: Technicolor Teeth, Garbage and a nice coffee shop by The Frequency
MI: What sort of show should Madison expect from the band?
JT: Bring ear plugs for the music, bring acid for the visuals
MI: Nice of you to visit in the middle of winter. How can we make you feel welcome?
JT: Tell the sound guy we are loud, and be nice
MI: How would you describe your sound to somebody not yet tuned into Wildhoney?
JT: The song ” Kiss Me” by Sixpence None The Richer meets Nirvana
