Hi guys, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?
Hey! Really good thanks, we’ve had a day off yesterday so we’re feeling pretty fresh.
Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Deepdene”?
It’s about a place I lived when I was 13. I have a lot of great memories there.
Did any event in particular inspired you to write this song?
When I got off the train there from testing out mic’s to record the EP with I walked to the area I used to live and that’s something that really inspired me, going somewhere you spent a lot of time as a kid can bring a lot of memories to the surface. I came up with the opening verse there.
How was the film experience?
Filming our video was fun but tiring – it looks like we are having a laugh and enjoying every moment – which we are, but when you’ve played the same song 20 times so that the cameraman can get all the angles, and you’ve been on it all day, it can be a bit trying! But we want the best video that we can do so all the effort is worth it – Rupert.
The single comes off your new EP First Attempts At Everything – what’s the story behind the title?
It’s our first EP, it’s our first attempt, and music is pretty much everything to us in a way.
How was the recording and writing process?
We come up with songs pretty easily at the moment, we chose songs we liked the best from our setlist. Recording was fun as always, Although I did get heat stroke at the hotel the day before recording vocals for deepdene and a place to run. I was sick everywhere. Heatstroke + fish & chips with extra mayo is not the best combo.
What role do Paramore and Blink 182 play in your music?
I don’t think our music sounds anything like theirs, but we did grow up listening to them and they’re a big inspiration.
Where did you find the inspiration for the songs and lyrics?
I won’t go too into detail right now song by song, but overall they usually come from memories, sights we see everyday, sights we remember, or fictional stories etc.. a lot of it comes from what mood we’re in and how we’re vibing and how the music inspires us. One thing usually leads to another.
Any plans to hit the road?
We have plans to tour later this year, as well as maybe play some festivals in the UK. We can’t confirm or say too much yet though.
What else is happening next in 2FAR2JUMP’s world?
Lots of writing, planning, putting things in place to take us further as a band.
We have read that you have been creating music since you were very young. What …
