OCCUPY THE DISCO: You're both well established in New York's music scene individually. What led you guys to form The Carry Nation?
THE CARRY NATION: We formed The Carry Nation three years ago because it felt exactly right for what we envision for the future in this city. We are seven years apart age-wise and come from different (but overlapping) scenes and have always admired the other's sound. Our differences complement each other and make us know that we can cover all the ground we need to. The alchemy also leads to unexpected territory, but luckily, our crowd welcomes this...That gives us the motivation to continue down new paths!

The Carry Nation parties are known to be fun, all-night affairs that really get going in the wee hours of the morning. What do you think it is about that special time of night/morning that suits your styles so well?
Our monthly Brooklyn parties are definitely long. We think of them as happening in loosely delineated but magically distinct shifts. Some people really love the late hours and come late...Many other people get their life from the main or “club hours” section of the night where we feature and play alongside incredible guest DJs from our musical family in NYC and beyond. It's also undeniable that there is something distinct and special about the morning hours of the party...We have even begun to see some people come with coffee cups for the morning hours!
