Maya Singer of the Dallas Observer caught up with OK Go frontman Damien Kulash, who talked about the bands self titled album which saw two rounds of writing to create. “Elvis Costello once said that you have 21 years to write your first album, and six months for your second,” Kulash says. “In a way, I think both those experiences are reflected on the album–there are songs like ‘C-C-C-Cinnamon Lips’ that are years, years!–old, things we did just for fun and in the vacuum of never knowing if people would hear them, you know? Whereas, I think the newer songs are less structurally cerebral and more honestly emotional than the earlier stuff. I just got to a point where I wanted the music to sound more…immediate.”
