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.”
