VIDEO: Khruangbin's Musical Influences

Khruangbin blends music from around the world to make their signature sound. Watch them discuss their influences with Reverb.

Is there a more eclectic band than Khruangbin right now? “World music” is a washed term but it makes sense with the Texan three-piece and not in a pretentious way.

The trio sat down with Reverb to discuss their musical influences and process as well as performing August 10 to close it out.

I start with drums. So DJ has sent me a big bank of drum loops. I have a new set now to work with and I just play. I put them on a loop and play over them when I send it to Mark, and Mark chops up and picks the pieces that he likes puts it together and then plays over it. Yeah, it’s not a bad game. It’s like a, you know, relay race writing but it’s nice because we all have a chance to work on our parts sort of individually and then when it’s time to record we all come together and sit together and play them.
