Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Swimming in Consequences »?
It all started a few months ago when I was working on a remix of Hilary Duff’s “So Yesterday.” The remix was coming along really well, but I really wanted a male vocalist to mix with the original vocals. So I started to browse Youtube and I came across this amazing singer who was making covers of existing songs. I thought “huh, he’s my singer!” And when I released the remix, everybody loved his voice. So I decided to make an original song with him. Three months later, “Swimming in Consequences” was born!
Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?
As you may have noticed, lyrics in SIC are melancholic. As a kid growing up I was always taught that my life was based on the choices I made. Swimming In Consequences deals with making choices and dealing with the consequences. What you give in life is what you get in return.
Any plans to release a video for the single?
Absolutely, the video is going to be on Youtube very soon and I am very happy about it.
It’s the perfect extension of the song : it brings images to the music and everything is consistent. We had a comprehensive crew and actors working on the video. It was shot in 3 days and a lot of people wanted to be involved, especially for the final scene. I want to send a big thank you to all of them!
How was the recording and writing process?
I always start a song with the music theme. First I shape up the chorus, then everything comes together. What is really amazing with this singer is that he gets what I want and he is pretty quick in the writing and recording phases. He wrote and recorded the lyrics in about 24 hours!
Does your new single mean we can expect a new album – how’s that coming along?
Of course! I’ll be releasing an EP first. I have a few tracks ready that I am excited to share with the Gloknation.
Any tentative release date or title in mind?
I am still debating on the title but it should be released around the Holidays.
Any plans to hit the road?
Not right now. I’m focusing on the music and working in studio to tweak the tracks for the EP.
What else is happening next in Glok’s world?
The second single is already on it’s way! Its title is “Laptop Love” and we are shooting the video clip next week. I’m so excited to release it!
