Artist Spotlight: Flip Phone Talks Sponsorships, Animals, and Stevie Wonder

Author: Haley Parsons

On Wednesday, Kalen and Cham from Seattle band, Flip Phone joined me in the KXSU studio equipped with sunglasses and a chicken sandwich to discuss birthday cake, the afterlife, and spiders. The guys requested that I come up with some creative questions and this was the result…

KXSU: What was the best thing that happened to you today?

Kalen: I got my last drop off of the day at the body shop was a 1995 Corolla, it was really messed up.

Cham: shout out Toyota.

K: It’s gonna be a mess to work on, not good for a body shop to be working on cars like that but we’re doin it!

C: I bought a birthday cake today.

KXSU: really?

C: Yeah, tight, an ice cream cake.

KXSU: From Dairy Queen?

C: Baskin Robbin’s, shout out Baskin Robbin’s

KXSU: If Flip Phone could be sponsored by one brand, what brand would you want it to be?

C: Dude, that’s not even an option, there’s so many brands I’ve been wanting to exploit.

K: We really f*ck with NASA.

C: Dorito’s.

K: Smarties.

C: I do NOT endorse Pepsi, if Pepsi offered me 5 million dollars, I’d say, “F*ck you, Coca-Cola for 5 dollars a year.”


C: Um…

K: That’s it?

C: Doritos and Coca-Cola!

KXSU: In the past, people were buried with the items they would need in the afterlife (think ancient Egypt and the Pyramids), what would you want buried with you?

C: Guess!

K: Take a wild gander

KXSU: I really can’t

K: Look at him right now, what do you think?

KXSU: (Cham was eating a chicken sandwich) Oh! Chicken.

C: “Oh chicken?” That would spoil immediately in my tomb! I do not endorse that one. I don’t know, Kale, what do you think?

K: Hmm, that’s a tough decision. Why are you asking such tough questions?

C: I know one thing I would be buried with, four bottles of Tequila, so whoever found me could have some nice vintage tequila to celebrate.

K: I think a pool table, full size.

KXSU: Why?

K: Because I like to play pool!

C: He’s hella good at pool.

C: For me, I would probably want to be buried with just, records. I’m serious about that. It was all jokes before, but I’m dead, dead*ss, dude. Records. I don’t care what records because I just love music. Shout out Stevie Wonder… That was off the record.

K: His real answer is Dorito’s.

C: Shout out Dorito’s.

KXSU: What’s your favorite song to sing along to?

C: Right now? Right now, “How Deep is Your Love”.

C: Kale? Is it the happy birthday song?

K: Anita Baker, “Caught Up in the Rapture”

KXSU: If animals could talk, which would be the most annoying to listen to?
