Home / Music / Artist Interviews / INTERVIEW: The Scheme


-Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Can’t Stop”?

Yes! It drops on September 23rd! We’re really excited about it because it’s the start of releasing our new material! It’s basically about meeting someone you really like, and not quite knowing what to do or where its going, but you just can’t stop yourself from falling for them over and over again.

-Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?

Nothing in particular. We were just in a writing session and Aleksey started playing the guitar riff you hear throughout the song.  We immediately loved it and the song was born! 

-How was the film experience?

Shooting the video was a really cool experience! It was shot & directed by GoodBoy Wolf and they did a great job with it! We had a blast shooting it & all the dancers were amazing!

-How was the recording and writing process?

We had a really fun time writing this EP.  We actually went to a little town called Jerome in Arizona. It was 5000ft up with a view for 100 miles across AZ, from the studio window, which was so amazing! It was such a beautiful and inspiring place to write and be creative. We recorded the EP once we got back to London in our studio based at Tileyard Studio’s near King’s Cross.

-What was it like to work with WestFunk and how did that relationship develop?

A mutual friend connected us after he heard the music and was into it! He ended up doing a huge Remix of our new single Can’t Stop, which was really cool!

-How much did he get to influence the album?

He had major influence on the Remix we did for Can’t Stop. We wanted to give him some free space to come up with his own style for it and he did just that. Absolute banger of remix! He really made it sound awesome and so much different than the original track which we love!

-What role does London plays in your music?

London is just a really good place to be creative, it has a great music scene. Our studio is at TIleyard so it’s perfect for us as we are all so close.  It’s also cool to get to be around other great writers and musicians all the time.

-Does the new single mean we can expect new material – how’s that coming along?

Yes, it does! The single is out September 23rd, and we are currently working on our EP which will be out in late October.  It has been coming along really well, we had a great time writing & creating this new material and we’re really excited for everyone to hear it!

-Any tentative release date or title in mind?

Yes, our EP is set to drop late October! It’s going to be called “Jerome Heights”. Named after our time spent in Jerome, AZ where we wrote the EP.  

-Any plans to hit the road?

We are going on tour with The Tide in September and we’ll also being doing a radio tour around the country leading up to our single release!  We’ll also be heading out on the road in October to promote the EP!

-What else is happening next in The Scheme’s world?

We’re just gearing up for the single release, the EP release, the tour and much more! We can’t wait for everyone to hear our new stuff! Exciting times ahead!
