RGM INTRODUCING – WE INTERVIEW NEW BAND MIMOSA

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?

It has always been a thing and music has always been in our families and we cannot think of a better job in the world.

Introduce us to you all and your musical history.

Ay up, I’m Mont. My grandpa was in a band, so I grew up going to his gigs. Everyone in my family pretty much can play instruments and that was a major player in my decision to pursue a career in music.

Yo, Rob here. Monty’s grandpa taught me how to play guitar from 10 years old and he would teach my dad as well, i’ve always grown up with a passion for music and it’s been a dream of mine to do it as a career since as long as I can remember.

Hello! I’m Mac my first memory of music is singing from the top of my lungs in the shower as far back as I can remember. My parents listened to the Beatles so from when I was young I had a massive influence on the styles of music. I eventually started exploring instruments from being a teenager which led to playing in bands throughout school 

What was life like for you before music?

Boring, 4 on 4 off using the crappy job as motivation to write good songs as a way out of this. Once we got the band together everything fell into place nicely.

I keep seeing the name Mimosa all over the socials, what’s your secret?

Our manager bless him has to put up with us but he puts all his efforts into turning this into something big. He eats sleeps and breathes music He is onto us 24/7 constantly working on new things and opportunities, we are very blessed to have a good team of people behind us all pushing for this goal of ours.

Our manager has contacts such as the ex-president of Capitol Records, as well as multiple A&R rep’s from major record labels and he speaks with them regular and takes in the guidance of which he then passes on to us guys. We are noticing a significant rise in all of our social media platforms and now Spotify. 

What was the first song you heard that steered you into a music path?

For me it was Whiskey in the Jar by Thin Lizzy, the first song montys grandpa taught me on guitar.

for me (monty) I loved Eminem as a kid and learned those word for word maybe wanted to be a rapper or Summet 

Where do you feel you currently sit within the music industry?

We consider ourselves at the moment grassroots/breakthrough however, we are consistently selling out headline gigs and with a management team, a big independent record label and a media company working with us and guiding us along the way we are confident that we will step it up in the industry within the next 12 to 24 month   

What’s the biggest thing you have learned from someone else in the industry? 

That does get squat.. a difficult industry to make a living from and we strongly believe anyone in the industry has a strong passion for music like ourselves.

Tell us Two truths and a lie about you.

One of us wanted to study music at college but couldn’t because No degrees

Macaulay can play drums, bass guitar, and guitar yet he is our frontman 

One of us is studying hair and beauty  at a university 

If you could wish for one thing to aid your career what would it be?

headline a main stage at a major festival!!

Do you ever worry about people taking things the wrong way or cancel culture? Discuss….

Our manager does, and we don’t.

Do you sign up to any conspiracy theories? If not why not?

 It’s not a conspiracy if its true is it.. Example: jet fuel doesnt melt steel beams does it.

Epstein didn’t kill himself, “they’re  turning the freaking frogs gay”… don’t get us started on this 

What was the worst experience on stage?

We had a powercut halfway through the set at the Ynot festival last year but then again we overcame it the drummer kept the crowd going and when he was tired our drum tech jumped on and got everyone bouncing… so maybe not that bad of an experience, tent was rammed, people couldn’t fit in an everyone was having it!

Tell us something about you / each member that you think people would be surprised about. 

Not all of us knew each other before before the band.

What makes you stand out as a band/artist?

I think we’ve got the ability to stand out to a wide variety of people and we’ve got a message to send across!

I hear you have a new music, what can you tell us about it.

All The Time is set to drop in like 3 days or whatever is an absolute banger and the amount of demos/ songs that are in the barrel is just getting better and better! 

What was the recording process like?

We recorded All The Timepiece by piece, we didn’t like the sound of it to begin with so we revisited it and made it  bang 

What was the biggest learning curve in writing the new tunes?

For Macaulay and Monty: the biggest learning curve in writing new songs would be to see out your creative ideas until the end, even if it’s something you’re unsure of. You can tweak and perfect at the end, stay in the flow, and don’t second guess original ideas, they come for a reason. (Monty says he’s learned to have a beer or 6 to get that thinking cap on)

Would you change anything now it’s finished?

Don’t ask a perfectionist this question 

  Is there anything else you would like to share with the world?
