      Remo Drive


      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 REMODRIVE. Instead, the Minnesota-based duos first album for Epitaph Records serves as thepinnacle 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 byolder kids who smoked weed and listened to Title Fight. The pair of wide-eye musicianswould find their legs in the emo world, but the songs on Greatest Hitsenveloped in themesof suburban malaise and self-reflectionshape-shift throughout all aspects of alternativerock, paying tribute not only to Midwestern emo heavyweights like American Football andThe 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 RemoDrives sound. The best thing for us to do is not worry so much about aesthetic and focus onwhatever 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 Erikslyrics (I just want to be as honest and straight to the point as possible rather than trying toappear smarter than I actually am) to the charming DIY video for Yer Killing Me thatfeatures the band sprinting down the streets of their hometown, instruments and all.Its like Remo Driveunlike many bands under their same genre umbrellahavent forgottenthat writing and playing music is supposed to be fun. We try to do things with a lot of energyand gusto, Paulson says. I think people can tell that we care a lot. I think our best quality isthat we care.But at the same time, the Paulson brothers share a deep passion and desire forimprovement. Erik is 20, Stephen 22; theyve got their entire musical lives ahead of them. Sowhile 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 whilewhere emo bands didnt try that hard. Were trying to bring back some of the technique withit. If someones doing your taxes, youd hope they know what theyre doing. If Im makingmusic, 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 ofrock, its ultimately a stepping stone to the Paulsons next evolution. But no matter how muchthings change, the non-negotiable aspects of Remo Drive that have turned heads until noware definitely not going to change.I feel like we dont really have a voice, Erik says. Were always going to end up beingdifferent every single album. Our tastes change so much. Were not too concerned aboutpleasing any one group of people. The things that will be consistent are the energy and thepassion. As long as it sounds awesome to us and the songs are good enough, itll be RemoDrive.
