INTERVIEW: Figure Eight

Pic by Hayden Sitomer

-Hi, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?

I’ve been doing well dawg!

-Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Forever”?
“Forever” is the first track off the EP and it is definitely one of the most challenging to sing live. 

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

I was just fooling around on the guitar one day and the riff came to me. It sounded pretty cool, so I developed it into what became “Forever.”

-Any plans to release a video for the single?

Probably not anytime soon, focusing on writing and playing more shows.

-Why did you decide to name the album after this track in particular?

I decided to name the EP “Forever” first, and that ended up becoming a fitting name for the song as well.

-How was the recording and writing process?

It was me alone in my basement for hours ????

-Would you call the new EP a departure from the last one or more of a follow up?

A bit of both, I feel like it is a development of the sound that was present on the first EP but it is still growing.

-Where did you find the inspiration for the songs and lyrics?

This EP in particular was based on personal experiences and situations.

-What do your tour plans look like for this year?

Currently planning some one off shows in the Spring and then a full U.S tour this summer!

-What else is happening next in Figure Eight’s world?

More shows, writing and such.
