Hot New Cali Rock Song - "Going Home" by Epsilona

How did Epsilona write and record "Going Home" it has an amazing sound? was it in a studio or DIY?

The verse and chorus were first written by Minh in the living room of a new place he had just moved into. There was nothing inside yet, so his acoustic guitar sounded cool when it echoed in the house. The rest of the song was put together and structured together with the band. It was recorded at Fat Cat studio in Sacramento, California.

Are you guys working on album at the moment or just releasing singles? 

We recorded an EP, and it's already been mixed and mastered. We're just releasing singles off of the EP the release date 11/28/2015.

Whereabouts are you Epsilona from and what is it like where your from? pros & cons

We are from Sacramento practicing in a suburban house by the university college. We love it in Sacramento! It's not a big City, but not a small town either. We seem to get the best that a big city and small town would have to offer here. We absolutely love our community. Anyone in their 20s would love living here right now. 

What are some of the bands biggest influences from the past and modern times?

Our influences come from everywhere. Melodies from Miles davis, dynamics and chord progressions from patrick watson, wicked space tones from Tame impala etc. Virtually everything we've ever heard is in our music.

What is the funniest thing that has ever happened to Epsilona playing a show?

A brawl broke out between a group of angry men on psychedelics on the other side of the courtyard when we played up in the mountains in the middle of nowhere. On top of that, a guy stumbled and knocked over a trash can, then climbed on stage and hid behind one of our cabinets (during our set). It was by far the strangest gig we have ever played, but we would probably go back because we want more stories like this. 

If you had a choice between critical or commercial success which would you chose and why?

Our version of success would be to have the ability to keep playing music, spreading our music, and just being able to survive while doing it. We will do what we have to do to make that happen.
