T44: It’s a tug-of-war. A love for humans but a disappointment in the direction our generation is gravitating to. We’ve lost a connection that was once instinctual to make. The lyrics are meant to sound like a relationship between a man and a woman who have lost their connection. But, if you read between the lines, as you should with our music, there are many different ways to interpret the overall metaphor of the song.
B.U..: …basically there can be as many meanings for “Looking For It” as there are people on this eARTh, it just depends on which side of the box you are stepping out of to find that meaning.
Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?
Plaga: No, not one event in particular. I think this song is truly inspired by people. Nothing is randomly generated, which makes the process and the outcome more genuine. Everything we write about has value to us. And we hope it has value to other people out there that are like us.
Any plans to release a video for the single?
T44: Everything we create visually we want to happen organically. We’re currently working on a video for another song of ours that hasn’t been released yet, but it’s a definite possibility for “Looking For It”. We kind of want to give people a chance to make their own interpretation of what the song is about before giving them a visual of how we personally read between the lines.
How was the recording and writing process?
Roger: It was GREAT. Jayne is a natural. It’s funny because we first recorded the song with only myself, Plaga, and B.U. present, and then Jayne came in after I left. After the session they basically sent me a completely different song and their revisions were perfect.
T44: One of the main reasons we work so well together kind of goes back to the human connection that “Looking For It” is talking about. All four of us connect with each other on such a deep, musical level that it gives us the ability to feed off of one another and build on each other’s ideas. Our connection also allows us to completely trust in each other, which is key when you have four completely different individuals bringing together four completely different backgrounds to create one sound.
What role does Voltron play in your music?
Jayne: Voltron was all different people coming together for one common, albeit ginormous, goal to save the universe. Even within their unity they were split into different teams, which I think we kind of are also in that we have a set of vocals and a set of producers. Obviously we aren’t trying to save the universe… at least not yet, but the parallel is definitely there.
What aspects of the universe do you tend to explore in your music?
T44: The limitless ability to BE. The serenity of understanding the power of HUMAN CONNECTION. The exploration of LIFE.
Does the new single mean we can expect a new material – how’s that coming along?
T44: At the moment, we’re working on an EP. The plan is to release a lot of content in the next few months, and after we do that, we will release our EP. We want to give fans time to get to know the band so that when the project comes up they can understand our true vibes.
Any tentative release date or title in mind?
T44: Spring is the goal, and as for the title, that part is probably more difficult than writing the music is!
Any plans to hit the road?
T44: We HOPE! Our show is a big part of the package and something we take a lot of pride in. To us, music is much more than just sound. We would love to grace many stages and inspire other eARThlings!!!
What else is happening next in TableForFour’s world?
T44: We are wrapping up a video that should be released VERRRRRYY soon. We are excited to give all of the eARThlings a visual alongside a new song. In the meantime, Dream Strong!
