If you had to go away for a while and you could only take five of your favorite albums with you, which ones would you choose? Yes, we know it isn’t a fair question, but that hasn’t stopped us from asking music fans who happen to be recording artists in their own right. This edition of Desert Island Discs comes courtesy of Wild Adriatic, a band from Upstate New York that has supported bands like Third Eye Blind and OK Go. Their new EP, Lock & Key, is out now! Go check it out — after reading their Desert Island picks, of course!
The band’a drummer, Mateo Vosganian, says: Our interpretation of the Desert Island Discs idea was to give each member of the band a choice of disc and then choose one all together. Also we kind of felt inclined to shy away from the idea of being trapped on a desert island forever (that’s terrifying!) and instead decided to treat it like a vacation we were going on for a couple of weeks and could only bring 5 discs to listen to. This way we avoided giving some of the more cliche answers and were able to give an insight to some of the eclectic array of records that we’ve been listening to a lot lately.
