Interview with Vulgarithm (UK)

By Mick Michaels

COSMICK VIEW: Hello! Welcome to The Cosmick View. Thank you for taking some time out of your day to chat with me, it's greatly appreciated.

CV: A lot has happened in the last 12 months.  The world has definitely been turned upside down…several times it seems. The music industry as a whole has been struggling. Given all things, what have you been up to during the pandemic?
Vulgarithm: Started a new musical project called Vulgarithm, with 2 EPs released, a 3rd EP on the way, 3 or 4 online shows and general promotion for a musical outfit that cannot perform live in front of people. 

CV: Many artists have not only taken the downtime to begin working on new material they have also harnessed all the emotions and feelings, channeling everything that has been going on into lyrics and arrangements. Have you experienced something similar? Has the lockdown impacted your songwriting in some way?
Vulgarithm: If anything it helped. I drive around a lot for work and as the lockdown restricted movement, it gave me more time to focus on lyrics. Also, as someone who uses music to let off steam, in these difficult circumstances, writing these songs was very therapeutic for me.

CV: How has the pandemic and the restrictions affected how the band’s live performance schedule?

Vulgarithm: Unfortunately, Vulgarithm was born during the pandemic, so apart from a few handfuls of online sets, there haven't been any shows for the general public. 

CV: We all have dreams, we all aspire to some level of greatest. Artists are often the ones who seem to dream the biggest and the brightest. If you had the opportunity to tour with any band/artist of your choice, who would Vulgarithm tour with?

Vulgarithm: Nine Inch Nails have always been my go-to band, but for touring with Vulgarithm it needs to be a band with riffs, electronics and party vibes, so I reckon Skindred would be ideal.

CV: With so many music fans believing that there is not much offered anymore in the way of new music, what album would you recommend to someone who subscribed to such a sentiment?

Vulgarithm: There is only one answer and that is "Ohms" by Deftones. One of the best albums in the past 5 years, back to the riffs they are none for and the production is incredible

CV: What next for Vulgarithm? What can fans expect for 2021?
Vulgarithm: I've released my new single "Out My Way!" For my upcoming EP, "Share in the 3rd Degree," no release date has been set but all the songs are done. When we're back out of lockdown, Vulgarithm will FINALLY be unleashed onto the public. 

CV: Thank you again for spending some time talking and sharing with our readers. It was such a pleasure. I wish you all the best.
