Interviews About Albums: THE HYBRIS - Music, Vol. 1 (2022)

In this new interview, we sat down with the International Alternative Rock bands THE HYBRIS to ask some questions about their album Music Vol.1

1. What can you say about this new EP/CD?

THE HYBRIS is a project of three friends. We are from Germany and know each other for many, many years. We played in various rock bands before we were spread all over the world for professional or family reasons. Today we live in Nice, in L.A., and in Cologne, but still – and more than ever – we make music again. We started this project three years ago and spent the last years writing and recording this album.

2. What is the meaning of the EP/CD name?

We called the album “Music, Vol. 1”. “Music” is one of our favorite tracks on this album and the numbering indicates, that there are hopefully many more to come.

3. Which one is the composer of the CD/EP?

Every song starts differently. All of us play various instruments, and everyone contributes what the songs we are currently working on need. Thanks to today's technical possibilities, we have built a joint virtual recording studio. In the past, you had to spend tons of money on expensive recording studios and be creative in a limited amount of time. This almost always led to pressure and dissatisfaction. This is different today, each of us can get started when the flow is there, which is amazing.

4. If you have to pick one song, which one would you pick?

That’s difficult, I love all of them. But if I had to pick one, it would be “Silent Violence”.

5. Is there a special message in this EP/CD?

If there is, what is it? Some songs are more personal, others are politically motivated – sometimes you can despair at the state of the world. We wanted to reflect this in our name: "THE HYBRIS" stands for us as a headline for the age we live in as mankind right now: In Greek tragedy 'Hybris' stood for exaggerated self-pride, arrogance, excess of ambition causing the transgressor's ruin.

6. Are there some lyrics that you´d love to share?

My favorite lyrics are “The Other Side”, a song about openness, tolerance, and empathy toward people who live a different life and perhaps have a different background or culture.

7. Which inspirations have been important for this album? Like musically or friends, family, someone you'd love to thank especially?

We are huge fans of good music. Mainly rock music, but also completely different stuff like hip hop, electro, or jazz. Our music moves between pop, punk, indie rock, and alternative rock, but we always try to create a recognizable style. People quickly compare you with existing bands, I find that extremely difficult for our own music. Others have compared us to bands like Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Feeder, The Killers, The Cure, or The Clash – which is an incredible compliment for us.

8. Something to add?

Well, if anyone wonders what the deal is with these masks – we felt like doing something "different". At first, it was a stupid idea, but meanwhile, we think it is pretty cool.
