You recently released a catchy new single with a cool story behind it. Can you tell us about “Catherine No Chaser.”
One of the best things about New York City is the people you get to meet. I was seeing a play in the city and had a chance encounter that ended at 6am dance party at one of our local hangouts. Never saw her again.
As someone who grew up in New York, I thoroughly enjoyed the music video for “Say.” How did this video come about - the concept, getting all the people together for the dancing, etc.?
We really wanted to show the beachy, colorful side of NYC. What better place than Coney Island? A funny thing about the dance scene is that the speaker we brought stopped working and Marley Lubin, the dancer, was able to get everyone to clap along while I sang. It was a really cool moment.
Playing a wide range of shows, from sold out venues to festivals, you’ve played for all types and sizes of crowds. What’s your favorite type of setting to play for?
There’s no denying a legit house party. Two floors, backyard, three bands. We played an amazing house show in Gainesville, FL, and it was one of best shows on the tour.
What are three must have items for touring?
Sleep Mask, Earplugs, Pedialite
Your music has such a cool vibe to it, kind of the Strokes meets the Kinks. If you could have any artist cover one of your songs, who would it be?
That’s a tough one but I think it would the late, great Tom Petty. He’s incredible inspiring to the group.
What does 2018 have in store for Best Behavior?
We’re already in the studio working on a new record and we’ll be touring early spring.
