Screaming Females

„Screaming Females were omnipresent, when I was in NYC last summer. You have to check them out,“ a friend told us. However, the band is not exactly from the musical hub New York, but from the much more sedate New Brunswick in New Jersey. Yet the up-and-coming musicians proved that you can literally climb up the stairs to success no matther where you come from. Screaming Females have played a lot of shows in the basement of New Brunswick-houses and helped created a DIY music scene in their hometown. „We don’t sound like what’s currently hip, and what people are trying to copy,“ drummer Jarret Doghterty said in an interview for npr music. „And that’s because we came from a community that was not concerned with what was currently hip.“ So when we meet the unpretentious trio and their former flatmate and now driver for a filming session in Vienna, they set up their gear in a park, where we have ended up once before with Volcano. Marissa Paternoster, King Mike and Jarrett Dougherty then perform the energizing songs „Boss“ and „I Don’t Mind It“ from their latest album „Castle Talk“. And even though Marissa is very good on the guitar and does have a strong voice, she can only laugh if people want to portray her as a tough superwoman and guitar-nerd. When she was featured in the glossy Guitar World magazine and she’d been asked what kind of strings she was using, she was like: „I don’t know. The – I say, can I have the cheapest strings?“ Obviously they did not publish that in Guitar World, but on npr Music.
