Hi guys, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?
Predominantly a bit dirty.
Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Kids”?
Yeah the lyrics have a kind of religious theme to them. It’s about uncertainty and how time is running out and regretting your past. How people that worship God or Jesus are weak minded and the people that don’t have a belief are more in the power of their actions, as they aren’t constantly being influenced by a faith. The video sum it all up in one take.
Did any event in particular inspired you to write this song?
I think the lyrics were inspired by me watching that documentary about the most hated family in America, the hard-core religious God/Jesus worshipers. It’s about how people that worship God or Jesus are weak minded and the people that don’t have a belief are more in power of their actions, as they aren’t constantly being influenced by a faith. I also threw in some stuff about uncertainty and how time is running out and regretting your past.
How was the film experience?
We weren’t in the video on this one. We did love the treatment and then let the director go shoot it.
The single comes off your new album Vol. 2 – what’s the story behind the title?
Its after vol. 1.
How was the recording and writing process?
I don’t really like recording vocals, never have done. I find it hard to get the real raw sound of my voice to transfer to a recording. I enjoy writing lyrics and fitting them to the music, which is my favorite part of the process.
Can we call this album a sequel? Would it share the same themes as Vol. 1?
Yes hence the name Vol.2. I guess the topic of the songs are kind of similar.
What role does London plays in your music?
I’d say the City influences a lot of my lyrics, how the people are and the surroundings.
Any plans to hit the road?
Yes playing some out of town dates and couple of London shows in the coming months. Check our Facebook page for details.
What else is happening next in Death Koolaid’s world?
We want a booking agent and management to get better support slots, get on tours and play festivals. Its really hard doing any of these things without professional or financial backing.
