Passage by Zerkalou Last year, most of my friends and I were exiting our high school phase into the idyllic post-adolescence of adulthood, which of course, is strife with malaise, a perpetual confrontation with inadequacies as both artists and people, and ultimately, without proper guidance or assurance whatsoever. As we tried to come to terms with our new, “mature for our age” adult selves, I don’t think we could ignore that we ended up becoming even more like the high schoolers we wanted to be back then. We hung around each other’s houses until 3AM watching movies and laughing, all the while knowing we had our typical minimum wage jobs to run off to a few hours afterwards. We ran around our plastic suburbs and quaint valley towns, taking goofy pictures until the hours became their dim, melancholic blue; and we drifted around the empty city streets in each other’s cars, watching the clementine lights whir by as we tried to set aside the malaise we were all secretly feeling.

A few months ago we were given the opportunity to talk to Dimitri Farougias, bass player for the “bi-coastal” alternative rock group, Faulkner. Working with some of the most iconic names in music, this band is here to turn some heads and make a name for themselves in the music industry. Keep reading to find out about the background of the band, what it was like working with RZA of Wu-Tang Clan, and the response to their debut EP.
With their newest track, Stray Monroe establish themselves as “completely different musicians”. In honor of the release of their new single/music video, we spoke to the four components of the San Diego based indie rock band about their new sound, their goals, and risking everything for music.
Sitting in Public Square having coffee with Zane Alexander, we discussed a possible EP, forming connections (Zane knowing basically everyone), and his very own musical! Conversing with this very eclectic and obviously talented guy, we learn quite a lot about his killer music background and his wicked goals for the future. So if you can, grab a cup of coffee and just keep scrollin’ to get a Taste of Zane.
