INTERVIEW: Suasion

Hi guys, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?
We are fine. We are full of great news !

Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Horizon”?
The lyrics were written by Steven (vocals). He speaks about the fear and pain we go through when we get in a new environment. The fact of landing alone in an unknown city with total strangers can make you re-think your choices. I’m sure everyone has already felt like this once.

Did any event in particular inspired you to write this song?
The idea came from the fact that Steven started studying in France one year ago, in a completely new city to him. Sometimes, he wanted to throw everything away and just go back home but it can’t be that simple. This event influenced partially the lyrics of Horizon.

How was the film experience?
It was a pretty dangerous place to shoot, especially during the night !
We felt like everything in there was about to break because of how old everything was. And the place was also dangerous because of its location within the city : we had trouble with a group of guys who tried to get us into a fight against them because the generator we used was too noisy for them.

We ended up unscrewing the theater’s door to bring the generator inside, risking intoxication from the insane amount of gas it consumed. That and all the dust contained in the room nearly made us choke! Despite this, we keep a very good souvenir of this experience.

How was the recording and writing process?
We started writing this song early 2015 and we finished it a few weeks before entering the studio. We recorded in Berlin with our producer Nicolas Delestrade (NDSE Recordings). Nicolas brought great ideas and advice for the vocals. Like every studio experience, it was exhausting but full of good memories during the recording itself and during spare time. We discovered the amazing diversity of Berlin.

What role does Belgium plays in your music?
We write music and lyrics following our feelings, not regarding the country we are from.

Does the new single mean we can expect a new material – how’s that coming along?
We have other singles to be released before summer. We are currently working on a full-length album.

Any tentative release date or title in mind?
The next single is called “Heritage” !

Would this be a departure from your previous record or it would work as a follow up?
More of a departure. I think we can raise the game with Steven’s vocals.

Any plans to hit the road?
Yes of course. We’ll play several festivals this summer : UK Tech-Fest, Jera On Air in The Netherlands and 6K Fest Unreal Night II in Belgium. We’ll probably have a small tour in Germany in the end of July.

What else is happening next in Suasion’s world?
We’re now working with Alex, our manager, from New Breed Agency (Slaughter To Prevail, For I Am King). As mentioned in the previous questions, we’re working on organizing small tours in Europe and we’ve started writing a full-length album.
