New Band Alert: Bedrooms

Bedrooms, one of the newest editions to the music scene. Definitely excited for this band, and cant wait to hear more from them. Check out their small interview and video below of their debut performance from Sunday Showcase at Live House Guam.

Band Name?

We are bedrooms.

Band Members Names?

Jonathan Perez (Guitar), Anthony Sablan (guitar), Joseph Hernandez (bass), and Dan Ganacias (drums).

What's the meaning behind the name/ or how did you come up with the name?

Well, during the early stages of the band it was just me (Jonathan) and Ant playing guitar with a drum machine. We were throwing out ideas for band names for a few weeks when Ant came up with bedrooms. It really stuck with me and I felt that it fit the kind of music we wanted to make. It was something that's comfortable and personal. The band members that joined after (Dan and Joe) liked it as well. They said that their bedroom is usually the place they think of when they would listen to or make new music.

Music Genre you would categorize yourself/or your band?

According to In the Mix, we are an "alternative rock band with an indie pop feel" haha. What does that even mean? Honestly though, we don't really know. We wrote things that were more shoegaze-y when we first started, but later we enjoyed playing and writing things that are more like indie rock. We're still trying to figure that out.

What are your musical influences?

I know Ant likes The Smashing Pumpkins, Madonna, and Bob Dylan. For Joe it's The Pixies, Northstar, and Future Islands. Dan enjoys Car Seat Headrest and Tennis. As for me (Jonathan), I like American Football, Bark Psychosis, and Toe. There's so much more to list, honestly. We try to bring all of our influences into our music.

Any Shoutouts?

I wanted to do one for my Auntie Lyn for letting us use her garage to practice and for taking care of whatever we needed. Also, to our bassist Joe. He left to Vegas for good and we hope he reads this.
