Andy Cato of Groove Armada sat down with our friends at URB.com to chat about “Black Light”, SaintSavior, and the new Groove Armada Live show.

Check the interview….

You might have noticed the name Groove Armada around a bit lately. It could be due to their “Paper Romance“ single that has been on heavy rotation globally or maybe the massive new album released today. Either way, we thought we needed to corner these lads and get the goods for you. Thankfully, Andy Cato recently took time out of his busy schedule touring the sunny climes of Australia with the Big Day Out Festival to chat with us about where Groove Armada has been, where they’re headed in full force, as well as coffee, cigarettes, and lazers. Let the games begin.

URB:
Thanks for chatting with URB while on tour down in Australia, Andy. You are over halfway through the tour, how have they been treating you down under?
ANDY CATO: It’s always special for us over here. We’re playing to 30,000 people a day. The new songs, the show and Saint Saviour on the vocals is feeling pretty electric.

URB:
Do you guys have a city in Oz that really does it for you? The Big Day Out Tour does afford you the luxury of hitting all the best spots in Australia.
AC: The Gold Coast crew are the ravers, Sydney does things on a large scale and works the after parties well, and Melbourne’s got a San Fran vibe.

We’re tickled pink to announce a very special new addition to our blog family, long time friend and one of our favorite music scribes, Jen Boyles! Om fans will recognize her name for in depth interviews w/ Mark Farina and Derrick Carter, Kaskade, King Kooba, Rithma, Afro-Mystik and many more. She’s been covering electronic music for over a decade! We’re honored to have her writing for us, she’s already uncovered music from New Order produced indie rockers The Scanners and quite possibly the last magazine still standing worth reading Self Titled.

Boyles has been fighting in the trenches of electronic music since there were such things as JNCOs, and for that matter, vinyl. Getting her start at super-hip alt-weekly City Pages in Minneapolis as a nightclubs and dance music reviewer, she went on to work for a whopping eight years for the now all-digital URB Magazine, and has enjoyed stints with BPM, CNET, and Chicago’s New City. She enjoys thrift stores and finding deals on cool street wear far more than the average person should and is partial to UK comedies and a bit of cheese. Her favorite interview of all time was with Mike D of the Beastie Boys. You can email her if you want at Jenboyles(at)gmail.com or find her on Facebook.
