INTERVIEW: Ego Kill Talent

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

Great! I hope the same for you! 😉

Can you talk to us more about your latest single “My Own Deceiver”?


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

Yes, kind of two things actually… In one hand we had the music director of a big Brazilian TV Series reaching us and asking for a song for the soundtrack. In the other hand the lyrics were already “coming into existence” you know ? My Own Deceiver is about that “little voice” we have in the back of our heads that lots of times convinces us we are not good enough or that we need to gain or achieve something so we can finally be happy. It’s also about realizing that voice it’s just a misconceived idea.

What made you want to release the single both electric and acoustic?

The acoustic version is a way to “undress” the music and melodies and to make all sound more intimate. Including the lyrics. And we like that!

Any plans to release a video for the single?

Yes! It will be ready soon!

The single comes off your self-titled album – why naming the record after the band?

Actually it does not come from the album! 😉 It is a total new release. We decided to self-title the album be cause we feel it really represent what the band is and believe in.

How was the recording and writing process?

The whole process was very organic and natural. We have a very good chemistry and things and usually the writing process flows really easily. The recording process was like being in a lab in a sense that we tried a lot of stuff in order to get to the sound we wanted. And than a lot of focus on the “playing”.

What’s like to work with Jean Dolabella and how did that relationship develop?

We are old friends and I love him. Since the day we decided to start the band it has been a fun trip!

How much has he influence the band’s sound?

A lot! When it comes to making music we all contribute with all we can give and he definitely gives A LOT in the whole process.

What role does Brazil plays in your writing?

This question is very hard to answer actually. Because Brazil’s culture it’s so deeply in us that even when we think we are not being influenced by it we are still immersed in it without knowing it. You know what I mean? Still I would say that definitely in some melodies you can hear some brazilian influence.

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

In the searching for meaning and peace in life. Love.

Any plans to hit the road?

Yes! We just came back from some European shows. We’ll play some big festivals in Latin America on the second semester and we already are working on an European tour for early 2018.

What else is happening next in Ego Kill Talent’s world?

We are already writing some new material actually!
