Sons of the Sea's Brandon Boyd on Jumping Into Songs Headfirst
Incubus frontman opens up about new project

Incubus lead singer Brandon Boyd is very eager to talk about his new project, Sons of the Sea. The band's self-titled first album features bright vocals and smooth guitarwork reminiscent of Sixties California surf-pop – and they come from a very personal place, as Boyd explains in this exclusive clip.

"As I've gotten older, I've learned that the more I just sort of jump in feet-first without asking too many questions, without overthinking things [or] over-cooking them, the more fuel I've had for making music and making art and feeling more alive," he explains.

Sons of the Sea released Compass, a four-song EP, last month; their debut album is set for release on September 24th.

"I actually see life as art," Boyd says.  "I think that human beings are an expression of the universe."
