  • Chill Harder: An in-depth conversation between Dope Body and Roomrunner

    Local noisy rock outfits Dope Body and Roomrunner both have new releases out—an LP, “Lifer,” and an EP, “Separate,” respectively—and they are joining forces for a release party on Friday at the Metro Gallery and subsequent tour. We took this opportunity to gather all eight members of these two bands at the Copycat loft and recording studio of Dan Frome, bassist of Roomrunner, for less of an interview and more of a conversation between the two groups. They touch on their new releases, which by mere coincidence both happen to be more stripped-down and melodic compared to prior efforts, while also placing their fingers on the pulse of the Baltimore scene and discussing the dynamics of making it in the indie world without really “making it,” the machinations surrounding said world, and much more. There was a great deal of self-deprecation and ribbing among friends (worth noting: John Jones has the unique distinction of having been a member of both bands), but a lot of what was discussed could serve as a good road map for any young kid with a notion of starting a band. What appears below is an edited and condensed excerpt. A much fuller version is available at citypaper.com/chillharder.
