Hiya folks thanks for joining us in the virtual RGM lounge today, grab a brew and take a seat.
What made you decide that music is a thing for you?
I mean I kind of just took up drums as a hobby but that led to me listening to music a lot more and really getting into it. And I took up guitar again in lockdown after falling back in love with that kind of music.
Introduce us you / all to the members and your musical history?
I’m hugo, i’ve been playing drums for about 8 years. I’m Caspian and been playing the guitar on and off for the last 6-7 years.
Name me your 3 favorite Albums?
Stone roses debut, can’t buy a thrill and faces. And for me Definitely Maybe, Whatever people say I am that’s what I’m not and Electric Warrior.
What was the first song you heard that steered you into a music path?
I’d probably say back in black by acdc and for me it was London’s calling (what a classic)
The music industry is the hardest industry in the world to progress in, How do you feel you are doing?
We feel we’re doing great because we’re having a lot of fun and learning along the way which is what means the most to me at this stage. It’s no doubt the hardest but with the right workload and determination we can give it a shot.
Im seeing a lot of debate about women not feeling safe at music gigs, any thoughts on what we need to do to help?
Well we think it’s crucial that everyone should feel safe at a gig. And everyone’s got a right to go to one without feeling worried or unsafe. I don’t think we’d want to perform in an environment where audiences members don’t feel secure. As long as people go with mates and security are doing their job and acts like us call it out when we’re on stage and say something, then I think we’re moving in a better direction.
As you develop as an artist and develop using socials what ways do you get new ears on your music? Any tips?
Not really I think just believe in what you’re doing, post it on socials and then you’ll find people who like it and interact. We get a decent amount of messages from people who love the track which is honestly the best feeling, this is a reason why we do it.
Tell us Two truths and a lie about you?
I eat, I drink, I’ve been to space.
Whats your thought on spotifys monopoly on the music industry?
Belief and faith will define you from the rest, some days it’s hard but that’s part of the plan.
Do you sign up to any conspiracy theories?
Nah not my cup of tea.
Did you buy anything you don’t need in the pandemic?
Well Hugo Bought a skateboard, don’t know why. And I bought an ab roller, used it once and never again.
What was the worst experience on stage?
Being a new band on the scene We’re yet to perform to a live audience but have a few gigs lined up.
Tell us something about you / each member that you think people would be surprised about?
Don’t know, Hugo can do some weird thing with my eye but it’s hard to explain. And I can crack my toes and fingers all at once. (Weird right…)
What makes you stand out as a band/artist?
I think we have a sound and energy that’s currently underrepresented in the main stream that we hope people will want to give a listen. We bring a fresher feel we think and hopefully it takes us somewhere.
I hear you have a new music, what can you tell us about it.
Yeah we got this song out on all streaming services called she knows nothing. Don’t really know what it’s about or why we wrote it but it makes sense when you give it a listen.
Talk me through the thought process of the new tune/s.
I mean it kinda just starts in my room when caspian has a guitar riff which we then build the instrumentals around. After that and writing some lyrics we record a kind of rough demo. We’ve been to a studio recently though to give she knows nothing a more crisp sound.
What was the recording process like?
It was pretty cool to be honest. Takes a while but defo worth the process. And definitely good to learn and makes us feel more comfortable.
What was the biggest learning curve in writing the new tunes?
I mean as you keep writing lyrics and instrumentals you gradually find new ideas and evolve i guess. Sometimes hitting a curve can throw you off but it’s important not to shut off and stop, perseverance is key.
Would you change anything now it’s finished?
Nah i’m really happy with our end result for the track. Think the production is amazing on it and am really proud of what we were able to make.
Is there anything else you would like to share with the world?
Our track she knows nothing is 100% worth a listen and think we’ll make some great music that people will hopefully enjoy.
