Jack: We’ve been great! Splitting our time between London and New York which is fun.
Can you talk to us more about your latest single One Chance?
Max: One Chance is the first release since our second album Tiger. We are extremely excited about it because it’s a fun summer song that also has a lot of meaning to us, about expressing your feelings and not being afraid to speak your mind.
Did any event in particular inspired you to write this song?
Jack: I think the meaning behind the song is something Max and I have both been working on during our lives and relationships, things don’t always go perfectly but all you can do is be honest with yourself and stay positive.
Any plans to release a video for the single?
Max: We are working on either a lyric video or a full music video next, we will let you guys know as soon as we sort it out. But definitely a proper video coming up!
The single comes off your new album Nights Like This – what’s the story behind the title?
Jack: I think since we released Tiger Max and I have gone through a lot personally with a lot of things happening when we are having nights out, and usually we reflect on those nights afterwards by writing a song when we get home or the next day. A lot of the songs on this album come from those personal experiences, and we hope that our fans also relate to these songs.
How was the recording and writing process?
Max: When we started off six or so years ago we used to use producers, but it was always too expensive and we couldn’t get exactly the sound we wanted. So since Tiger and for this album we recorded and produced everything ourselves in Jack’s apartment.
Jack: Max has become quite the producer in the past few years! As for writing a lot of the songs were at first written individually and then we would present the song to each other, and the other person would give advice and make some changes to create the final product.
What nights get to inspire the lyrics on this record?
Jack: Probably nights when things got confusing and difficult, when speaking your mind gets you into trouble but you know it’s the right thing to do.
Any plans to hit the road?
Max: Right now we are focusing on making this album the best Minor Soul album yet, but we will let you and the fans know when we plan on performing these new songs!
What else is happening next in Minor Soul’s world?
Jack: We are putting out another single soon! It’s gonna be huge as Trump would say, stay tuned!
