How do you usually write the lyrics of your songs?

On any given day, I either write in my notes or sing into voice notes different lyric ideas. Sometimes I save them for future songs, but more often than not once I have one line I build an entire song around it. Lyrics come from emotion and I usually write words reflective of my feelings.

 

In your opinion, what is the most important thing in songwriting?

Authenticity is the most important aspect of a song. I want to feel what an artist is singing and I want to believe they feel it. Even if it’s something funny or a bet surface concept. I never want our fans to think I don’t mean and hang on every word I sing.

 

Are you ever scared of revealing aspects of your personal life/experience to strangers through your music?

I think the more personal the better. We want our fans to know who we are as people and find that connection. It’s so important. We want them to be able to sing along and dance to the music, but all the while learning more and more about us. We’re on the journey together.

 

What is the best lyric that you ever wrote (the most meaningful for you)?

I think the most poignant lyric I’ve written is in a ballad that we have called “Blue”. I sing, “what I would give to see the sky blue again”. To me that sums up loneliness and I’m so proud of it. Keep a look out for that song.

 

What inspired “Robber In A Dress”, your latest single?

I was going through a break up a while back and our friend through a kick back at her house that she was selling. We all went to try and get me out of my funk. The neighbors thought that there wasn’t supposed to be anyone there so they called the cops. Our friend was wearing a dress and the police were questioning her hard about her stealing all the furniture. I called her a robber in a dress and when I said that, it clicked. That phrase summed up how I felt in that moment and I ran with it.

Are you planning to release soon a new EP?

We are working on the writing stages of an EP at the moment. We have a couple more singles that we are going to release before the end of the year and then we plan on recording a more substantial body of work.

 

What are your plans for 2018?

2019 is going to bring bigger things for us we think. Definitely an EP and we’re pretty sure we are going to hit the road and go on our first official tour. That’s our goal.

 

To conclude the interview a short Q/A session, please answer the first thing that comes to your mind:

  • Define in one word your sound/music: Honest.
  • The best show you ever played: We played The Mint earlier this year. The crowd was wild and we felt more at home than ever.
  • The one thing that you must have in your backstage: Whiskey and gummy bears.
  • The soundtrack of your childhood: Green Day.
  • Your favorite song lyrically speaking, but not written by you: One of the first songs that comes to mind is “Back To Black” by Amy Winehouse. I think the lyrics are raw and cut straight to the bone.
  • Last question is “unusual”, we want to know your best relationship advice: Feel the emotions as they come. Don’t rush. Don’t force. Just enjoy the moment. If it’s meant to be, it will be. Love is an amazing feeling and it’s worth it.
