“We’re a rock band with heavy electronic elements,” says singer-guitarist Ephraim Wecker of San Marcos–based Hello Drama. “Our music is dance-y and energetic, hopefully something you can have fun listening to.”
Hello Drama’s track “Here She Comes Again” was the most downloaded MP3 from SDReader.com during April, taken from an upcoming EP and available on iTunes as a single. Wecker provided some background.
What was the origin of “Here She Comes Again”?
The song was inspired by a crazy ex-girlfriend and stalker, the “If I can’t have you, nobody else can” type.
Which sample lyric best sums up the song?
In San Diego/ while we’re playing a show/ She climbs up on the stage/ and screams “you don’t even know”
So did she really proposition the band, did anyone take her up on it, and was her boyfriend really out of town?
Yes, he still wants to kill me.
Finally, with all the venue closures up there, what’s the gig situation in San Marcos like nowadays?
If there’s a music scene in San Marcos, we don’t know about it.
