“Rib eye rock on lightly toasted bread” is the meaty metaphor Chris Aguilar once offered an inquirer when describing his band, KillinGracy. Aguilar admits he had no idea what he was talking about at the time but says this style of shooting from the hip sums up the band's songwriting process and sound.
Aguilar says a theme—which he won’t reveal (beef steak?)—runs through the recording. "The lyrics are personal, as I don’t write in character, but some are observations or stories," he says via e-mail. "I tend to write, though, in a way that allows the listener to get out of it what they will—who am I to say they identified with it wrong?"
