Because this Nashville band is into the whole brevity thing, they recently shortened their name from The Kopecky Family Band to simply, Kopecky. All six musicians abide by their own set of rules and create a unique sound with indie rock, pop, and folk all swirled together.
As Kopecky, the band released its sophomore album, Drug for the Modern Age this month, and the songs all deal with addiction in one form or another, whether it is addiction to technology, sexuality or drugs. The band takes these serious topics and gives them a groove, turning heavy ideas into songs that people can sing and dance too while also offering up something substantive to think about once the party is over.
Kopecky recently stopped by Studio A to talk with me about their new album and to play us some of the new songs, and we’ll hear that performance and conversation during this episode of FUV Live.
