Over the course of fourteen years the Canadian trio The Perms have put out five discs of infectious power pop music. I recently talked to the band about their latest CD Sofia Nights, the impressive European response to their music, their plans for 2012 and more.
MK - How do you think you've managed to stay together for so many years?
The Perms - The response was amazing. It was refreshing to play in front of a new audience. The fans that came out were there to listen. It was a humbling experience. When we playing in Bulgaria it was especially humbling because we were treated with the VIP experience and the fans were so polite and responsive to our music. Were planning to go back in September.
MK - I read that you consider yourself power pop and I would definitely agree with that. I have been a longtime fan of power pop, but to me it's never really gotten it's just due. Do you have any thoughts on why power pop has never been huge?
