How do you usually write the lyrics of your songs?
Usually I turn a personal experience into a theme which allows me to get more creative with the lyrics. Often I will put myself in another person’s position and imagine how they feel and behave, I suppose it’s like acting in a way.
In your opinion, what is the most important thing in songwriting?
Emotion, I always try to make people feel something. Currently with Superbird, we are actively writing songs that are uplifting and fun, we want to put a smile on your face. Have a listen let us know if it works.
Are you ever scared of revealing aspects of your personal life/experience to strangers through your music?
Actually, I really have no problem showing strangers anything I have written, that’s the easy part.
It’s a very ‘wearing your heart on your sleeve’ moment when people close to you hear what you have written. That’s when things can get really awkward.
What is the best lyric that you ever wrote (the most meaningful for you)?
My favourite lyric in ‘Cola Bottle Fizz’ is: “Strawberry, I’m whipped creaming my bon bomb shell”.
What inspired “Cola Bottle Fizz”, your debut single?
The world has become a pretty grey place. Our vision has always been to inject some colour and fun into the world… an escapism. ‘Cola Bottle Fizz’ was the first song that Joe and myself co –wrote, we draw on nostalgic themes and use playful lyrics.
When will you release new songs?
Our target is to release one track per month for this year. We just can’t wait to share our music with everyone!
What are your plans for 2019?
To release lots of music and to keep building a buzz, and, of course, to play a few festivals in the summer.
