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

Trish Discord: I would say it was from Mitski who was an independent artist that is now huge and really about how being your true authentic self can bring people in who want to learn about you through music.

Devon Aviles: I am always trying to grow as an artist and producer so I’m always badgering my friends and acquaintances for new production techniques as well as watching tutorials, attending seminars, and doing research. 

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

Trish Discord: Our new song is called “Ever so Holy” and it is about religious bigotry and how certain ultra religious people can live ironically because they are told to be kind to others but are only kind to those that are part of their group and not outsiders of any kind. It’s about how all different religions act like others are not enough and need to be saved with the “everlasting love” of an omnipotent deity.

Devon Aviles: As the producer and writer, I was trying to capture dark industrial vibes and also combine it with something catchy and melodic while keeping it short and concise.

What was the recording process like? 

Trish Discord: Devon sent me the track with the instrumentals and I recorded the vocals in my room with a pre-amp!

Devon Aviles: I recorded the guitar in my R.V., while I was in Wisconsin (I think?) , through my Apollo and torpedo cab m+, as well as used some neural dsp plugins.  Then for the electronics I used various vsts in ableton, then sent a bounce to Trish, mixed her vocals, finished the mix, then throw some background vocals on the track and mastered it in my R.V.

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

Trish Discord: Usually it is lyrics and writing something that makes sense but is also catchy ang engaging.

Devon Aviles: I wouldn’t say there was a learning curve as much as I would say as it’s knowing when not to do things. It’s very easy to layer and clutter a track but to make something flow with multiple genres using an internal formula is always the greatest challenge. 

Would you change anything now it’s finished? 

Trish Discord: Nope!

Devon Aviles: Song wise I feel it’s great,  but mixing and mastering in an R.V. is a little difficult and isn’t always an accurate acoustical environment by any means. That being said, I would possibly turn the vocals down a touch.

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

Trish Discord: This track is different than anything I have ever released before but as a reviewer said, it gives “I’m in my villain era” vibes. 

Devon Aviles: I am always looking for artists to produce and collaborate with,  so get at me people!
