RGM Catches Up With Occurrence
RGM recently caught up with Occurrence, whose album Slow Violence is at radio now, to talk about a lot of things including the record’s creation. “After a two-year separation, the three of us were finally back together last fall in our studio in NYC,” the band explains. “We released an album in August 2021 called I Have So Much Love To Give. And rather than play shows, we decided to throw ourselves into recording new work, and there was such a buildup of excitement about being creative together again that we found ourselves with all of these new songs. It happened really quickly. The recording process is always rather similar in a great way—Ken will write demos and Johnny and Cat will decide which ones they want to write lyrics and melodies for, then we have at it. Because Cat lives in Kansas (a three-hour flight from Ken and Johnny), we set aside about a week to write and record in person.”
