Ahead of First Avenue’s Best New Bands of 2017, we got to ask Thomas Abban a few questions. Read what he had to say below, and don’t miss him at First Avenue on Friday, January 5.

Liz Legatt: How does it feel to be named both City Pages’ Picked to Click 2017 winner and one of First Avenue’s Best New Bands of 2017

Thomas Abban: Unexpected.

LL: Where do you draw inspiration for your songwriting and how has that evolved since you started? 

TA: From experience and imagination. That’s all I have. It just ‘becomes’ - you know?

LL: What thought process goes into planning for your performances? 

TA: Every process at my disposal.

LL: What new year’s resolutions do you have going into 2018? 

TA: I don’t do them.
