A little over two years ago we did an interview with the Los Angeles based band Run River North, a six person outfit from the San Fernando Valley. One of the things that made them stand out on their first album is that they filmed a music video, instruments and all, stuffed inside a moving Honda.
After their music video was released, they blew up. It got Honda's attention, so the car company booked the band a gig on Jimmy Kimmel, and then recorded it as an ad.
It's been a few years, but they're back with a new album "Drinking From A Salt Pond" and it's different than what they did before. It's no surprise that the evolution of a young band can be a fraught one... especially when there are six young people involved.
Recently Alex Hwang and Daniel Chae joined A Martinez to talk about that evolving relationship and what it's meant for their music.
