The Noise Boston – The Exhilarating Effects of DRUNKEN LOGIC

“Sometimes things just fall together in the right way and you find yourself in a band where the sum of the parts may be greater than the whole; and you make great music cooperatively. Case in point: Jake Cassman (piano and vocals), Austin Wells (lead guitar and vocals) and Ryan Jordan (rhythm guitar, keys, mandolin and vocals), as individually talented a trio as you can find today in New England.”

Medium: Jake Cassman of Drunken Logic Gets Logical

“That night when I was in bed, I suddenly had this vision for the “What A Beautiful Morning!” video. I stayed up through the morning writing and researching, coming with a concept and outline for it…I’d never gone completely sleepless because of artistic inspiration before, so I knew this was an idea worth chasing.”

Vanyaland – Anti-Trump series 30 Days, 30 Songs stays local with Drunken Logic’s ‘What a Beautiful Morning!’

“‘Of ‘What a Beautiful Morning!’, a song indebted to sunny ’60s pop-rock, the band writes that it was ‘written from the perspective of someone who mourns an idyllic vision of the U.S. in the 1950s and early ’60s — an era of safety and stability, at least in his mind. The song’s accompanying video uses existing footage from the era to suggest that this vision was never truly a reality, and was brutally withheld from millions of people.’

At least now, in 2016, our reality isn’t so blurred.”

Indie Artist Buzz: 5 Questions with Drunken Logic

“I think the connection that so many people seem to have to “Make America Great Again” often starts with that nostalgia. They seem to think that we’re facing different threats, different issues than we were back then. But I’m constantly amazed at how many of these issues haven’t changed. We’ve often made things better, but we’re still arguing about race, sex, privacy, poverty… the list goes on and on.”
