Sweet Sweet Music talked to Danny and Quig.
What was the biggest fun during the making of the last album?
Actually, the thing that was the most fun for us was just sitting back on the last day of mixing and listening to the record in its entirety. It was definitely a very proud moment for The Mylars.
At what point, during writing, rehearsing, recording, did you knew you were on to something special?
We knew we were on to something special right from the very beginning of the writing process. Every song took on a life of its own and each one brought with it a sense of new excitement.
The music industry has changed a lot (or so they say). What did it bring you? And what not?
The music industry has certainly changed a lot. Along with the change comes the sense of freedom to write and record exactly what we wanted, how we wanted.
We were able to capture the sound we were hearing in our heads without the outside distractions and influences of people with a different agenda.
It also gave us the ability to own 100% of the rights to our future.

The meaning of ‘success’ has changed over the years. When will the new record be a success?
We believe a record goes thru many successes. The fact that the record is out in the world and that people are truly enjoying it is definitely a success for us on a certain level.
We believe that the ultimate success for this record would be for every person who truly loves power pop rock as much as we do to have the chance to enjoy it as much as we enjoyed making it.
