Hello. We’re good and thanks for the interview, how’re you? x
Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Something Bad”?
Something Bad is our opening statement. We wanted to show our aim of combining the introspection and melodies of indie music but combining it with the energy and groove of funk and I think with the lyrics and rhythm together, we’ve done alright.
Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?
We’re constantly reminded that at this age we’re supposed to be ‘making the most of it’ and that its the best time of our lives. It puts an immense pressure on you and your forced to re-examine if you’ve been making the most of your life and searching in the right place for your true passion, and ‘Something Bad’ is about the feeling that you haven’t.
Any plans to release a video for the single?
No plans for a video but we’ve got some storyboards ready for others if the opportunity arises.
How was the recording and writing process?
Recording with our brothers Tom Anderson and Alex Quinn from AQ was a treasure, those boys were great and really helped shape the song and working in the Mothership of Parr St was magic too.
How are you looking to re-define Funk pop music?
We’re looking to bring back real grooves. We want to channel that rawness of late 70s and 80s funk and combine it with poetical lyrics, to create something new and unique.
Does the new single mean we can expect a new material – how’s that coming along?
It’s ready and waiting for you. We just have a few more details to iron out but it should be coming soon.
Any tentative release date or title in mind?
We’re thinking maybe early June but it’s still pretty loose.
What aspect of passion are you exploring on this record?
It wasn’t intended to target a specific area, it could be a relationship, a career or a purpose. It’s about the all consuming power of any passion or desire and its up to you whether you think that’s good or bad.
Any plans to hit the road?
We’re playing in Manchester for the first time on June 2nd and hopefully we’ll have some more dates coming soon.
What else is happening next in PANGEA’s world?
We’re excited to be sharing some new music with you very soon and we’re writing more as we speak. We love you. We Are One x
