Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Uptown”?
Our song ‘Uptown‘ is a song that we would call Pop Reggae. It’s an upbeat party song that introduces ESP Evolution to the world. Like these words from the first verse says, “Stepped in the club gonna rock the spot. Tonight’s the night that we’re breaking out. Gonna see what ESP is all about.”
Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?
We like to make funky dance music that uplift people’s spirits and get them moving. Uptown was actually a beat we found that already had the reggae chorus on it and when Capri heard it she immediately heard the verses from another song and felt those verses would be better on Uptown. We recorded it and our hit Uptown was born.
Any plans to release a video for the single?
We definitely want to release a video or two for our new album but right now we aren’t sure which song(s) will get a video.
The single comes off your new album Unstoppable – what’s the story behind the title?
We chose Unstoppable as the title because of the years we’ve had numerous road blocks but we have refused to stop. For our album cover we chose the symbol of the heart with the infinity symbol in it and this stands for unending and infinite love, which we believe in and believe that is the only thing that will heal the world. Love is Unstoppable and ESP is Unstoppable.
How was the recording and writing process?
Magical! The creative process is effortless when you just let it flow. We don’t create with any expectations other than just letting whatever is inside flow out. We don’t try to label ourselves, force ourselves to sound a certain way or anything like that, we just let it flow!
What aspect of joy and community did you get to explore on this material?
Our album Unstoppable is filled with songs that will make you dance and also songs that are talking about things that we all can relate to like love, infatuation, heartbreak, betrayal and hope.
Any plans to hit the road?
Live performance is what we live for!!! We gig around Los Angeles and want to continue doing that as well as going on tour around the country and world. That’s the goal!!!
What else is happening next in ESP Evolution’s world?
Along with our new album release Unstoppable, we are also completing the editing of a movie that we wrote about our band’s journey up to know (which will include a lot of live performances). We are also starting to work on the soundtrack/album for that movie.
