Hi guys, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?
Hey there! We’ve been busy starting a new record but we’re doing well!
Can you talk to us more about your most-recent single “Dazed”?
“Dazed” was written back when we were in high school and was originally named “Bink Bink” because we couldn’t figure out a name for it. We feel like that’s a perfect representation of our sound.
Did any event in particular inspired you to write this song?
I feel like it was inspired by adolescent life in general, just being a teenager. Partying.
How was the film experience?
The video is really special to us because it serves as a visual representation of what we’ve been doing for the past couple years. The footage is actually taken mostly from over the past several years and captures our playfulness and childishness pretty well.
The single comes off your new self-titled EP – what made you decide to name the record after the band?
We didn’t want to get conceptual with naming the record, instead we really just wanted to begin to show people what we did and who we are.
How was the recording and writing process?
We worked hard but liked to keep the recording process spontaneous and open. This allowed us to try new things while recording at Madison Recording Studios in Atlanta. We are really thankful for their support and willingness to let us be ourselves and in the end we produced a record that we are proud of.
How much does your Jazz roots influence this album?
We implement a harmonic sensibility that is reminiscent of jazz but our substance comes more from our rock roots.
Where did you find the inspiration for the songs and lyrics?
Every song is different. Most songs are drawn from past experiences (relationships, friends, touring, etc.) and are written from the heart and usually tell some sort of story. Other songs are conglomerations of multiple experiences instead of just writing about one instance in time.
Any plans to hit the road?
We have scattered dates throughout the rest of 2016 including September shows in Greenville and Charleston, and October shows in Birmingham and Nashville. We plan on touring extensively beginning in 2017.
What else is happening next in The Future Babes’ world?
We recently started recording our first full length album at Madison Recording Studios in Atlanta. We are really excited to share what we’ve been cooking up since our last release!
