Sarah interviews Kate Meizner from the band, Arm Candy about musicianship, being a girl in band and the Brooklyn music scene. Kate mentions a ton of bands in the meanwhile, so go forth and follow the links!

Hi, Kate, you’re in the band Arm Candy. Can you tell me a little about how you found your bandmates/formed the band?

A friend of mine from the internet (very millennial) introduced me to Carey (drummer of Arm Candy) at a show in early 2013. I was playing in an indie pop band at the time and was looking for a heavier project, so when Carey mentioned that Arm Candy needed a bassist, I was really jazzed about playing with them. The first demo, which isn’t online anymore, definitely had some ill riffs I could get down with. Emails were exchanged, and I had my first practice with Carey and Nathan where we jammed a few songs and hung out with Carey’s cool dog. Very good vibes. We started practicing every week and I was thrilled to just hang out and write songs, which I hadn’t done a lot of in my other band.

What kind of previous band experiences did you have? How long has this been part of your life?

I’ve been playing guitar since I was 14 - before that I played clarinet and totally sucked at it, so my dad went and exchanged it for a Peavey. Around the same time, I was getting into a bunch of ‘turn of the century’ early 00s pop punk and older punk like X and Black Flag. I remember listening to The Ramones and thinking ‘hey this song is only three notes…I can do this,’ so one night I stole my dad’s guitar and taught myself some chords. Then, when my 9th grade English teacher assigned a project to create a piece of art about a book we were reading, I chose it as an opportunity to write an alarmingly depressing and terrible pop song, which I played on an unamplified electric guitar in front of my class. I recall having a huge zit on my forehead.

I have a really weird band CV ranging from punk/pop punk to like…prog rock. In Western Mass I was in hardcore punk band called Honeysuck with Ally Einbinder (now the bassist in Potty Mouth) Sam Chaplin, and Marc Candilore (Tampered Reels). We put out a tape called All Your Lipsticks Are Bombs to Us where I’m playing guitar. I was in that band until I relocated to New York in 2011.

Most recently, I played in a jangly indie pop band called Gondola. I finished recording an album with them in December, and we released a four track 7” last March.
