Hi guys, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?
Hey there! We’ve been excellent, thanks for asking! And yourself?
Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Kings”?
We just released our song Kings on March 3rd! It’s a fun, dancey track with some disco vibes.
Did any event in particular inspired you to write this song?
Not particularly. We just wanted to make something fun and nostalgic and upbeat.
Any plans to release a video for the single?
Yes! We plan to release the music video within the next few weeks.
How was the recording and writing process?
Creating this song was a blast, especially now that we’re both living in the same state and could be in the same room! We love bouncing ideas off of each other.
Would you call this a total departure from your previous project?
We’ve both been in bands before this, so not entirely – but it’s definitely different.
KSM was an all-girl band working with Walt Disney/Buena Vista records and I (Katie) was much younger then – I was also the rhythm guitarist. I sang lead on two songs and background vocals but it’s much different being the lead vocalist. It’s a fun change!
I (Anthony) was also more of a hired guitarist for my previous band For the Foxes and we got to tour in a few countries, which was awesome. It’s definitely cool to be more involved in the band and creative process though.
Does the new single mean we can expect a new album – how’s that coming along?
We’ve played around with the idea of putting out an EP, but no solid plans yet. We enjoy releasing songs as frequently as we can, it helps to stay current and not let our audience get bored waiting for new music. We’ll be sure to keep everyone posted!
Would all the songs on this album deal with the nostalgia of being young and reckless or would you exploring other themes?
Most of our songs are uplifting, feel-good tunes because it’s natural for us and we feel the world needs more of it. If a situation arises that brings out a darker side, it’ll channel right into our music. Uh…. let’s hope that doesn’t happen though!
Any plans to hit the road?
We currently don’t have any tours booked, but that is the goal for 2017.
What else is happening next in Wayfarers’ world?
