Joe Jonas Says It 'Helps' to Make Music with Friends, Not Family

Joe Jonas is opening up about the differences between making music with his brothers as part of the Jonas Brothers and with friends as part of DNCE.

The 27-year-old singer is featured on the cover of TMRW magazine alongside the new band. Here is what they shared:

Joe on making music with friends instead of his brothers: “I think it really helps – not having to sugar-coat anything. We’ve all be in situations before where the smallest creative criticism can turn into a huge fight. We’re honest with each other and we can communicate in the right way. We’re lucky to have each other and just get it. We all support it and together want to make it the best that it can be. I mean, I did it with my family – that alone is enough to make it explode. Then you add working together and performing together on top of that and it’s like even crazier. We’re honest. There’s less pressure [with friends], but where I’m at in my life helps too. I’m older, I make my own decisions. I don’t have to think ‘oh my parents are in the room, can I say the word fuck in this song?’ It feels good to do it this way.’

Cole on keeping DNCE a secret before their launch: “Strategically, we kept the band like a ninja secret at the beginning. Nobody said anything. Nobody said anything about anything. No one knew Joe was working on anything. No one knew anything at all. It was amazing at the beginning, seeing people like ‘oh DNCE, that crazy new band with the cake song!’, and then people realising it was Joe, or me, or any of us. I think right now we’ve reached a cool medium where everyone’s at peace with who we are. DNCE’s a new thing that’s not gonna go anywhere anytime soon.”

    its nice to have a refreshing sound in pop music like DNCE … they are true musicians unlike most pop stars that lay down a few verses of bad vocals and their engineers do the rest.
