Anonymous asked: what was your inspiration to write, record and perform under the moniker Elvis Depressedly? Were your influences different from when you were Coma Cinema? Big fan of everything you do, regardless~
It was mostly moving to a new city. Also most if not all the gear I had during the period I was recording under Coma Cinema has broken or been lost to time.
My life changed drastically and became more difficult. I felt like a different person. The name Elvis Depressedly is a way to laugh at my own suffering. To make fun of the sad sac reputation I have that I don’t think I deserve.
Plus it’s more freeing. There aren’t as many expectations for an ED record.
Also Coma Cinema became a band instead of a solo project, of course that isn’t true anymore since everyone but me sort of quit or became too busy.
