Hey Guys! We’re good! Back in sunny Australia right now locking ourselves in the studio for the next few weeks finishing up our next few singles.
Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Morning Light”?
We’ve been pushing ourselves to write music outside the four to the floor festival bangers we’re probably known for, so this was one of the products of that.
Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?
We wrote the vocals after getting super lost on a late night drive to clear the mind, pulling an all nighter until the morning light comes up. We can all relate to that!
Any plans to release an insane video for the single?
We’ve always taken a hands on approach to music videos, right from the get go, we actually make all our own music videos. Our last video made it onto MTV here in Australia so we had to come up with something to raise the bar. We’ve just finished a video using what’s called ‘Double Exposure’, it’s a photography technique we think we really catch people’s attention. Can’t wait to show it to you!
How was the recording and writing process?
The vocals came really organically, you really have to take advantage when inspiration strikes, so we wrote this in an hour I’d say!
What was it like to work with MANBN and what did he brought up to the table?
AMAZING voice! Its rumoured his falsetto makes ice cream melt. Still yet to see it…
After the success from your previous music, were you any nervous while working on this newest single?
It’s more of a challenge than a feeling of nervousness, to create the strongest single that our fans will relate to and something we can stand by. It’s all a journey as we expand our musical direction, so excited to have it out there!
Do you tend to take a different approach when you are collaborating with someone else than when you are writing in your own?
Yea normally when we write club tracks it’s all about the sound design and synths, tweaking them for hours to get the drop as loud and phat as possibly. This process was that of feeling and getting the best vocal takes as the track is built around the vocal from MANBN.
Getting back to my video questions – how do you try to capture awesomeness of your live performances in the studio?
Yea its tricky. We’re sort of this this two faced, bipolar DJ act, that rages at night and calms down during the day to write about clearing your mind and getting lost during the day. I hope our fans can make the connection and understand what we’re trying make Rave Radio stand for.
Does your new single mean we can expect a new album – how’s that coming along?
An artist album has changed its purpose from what it used to be, used as a flyer for the artists upcoming tour or show, rather than a showcase of where that artist is musically. For us, we’re trying to put out singles that we can stand next to and be proud of it. With music having such short life cycles an album isn’t on the cards right now.
Any tentative release date or title in mind?
If we did do an album, it would be a collection of songs that may not be ‘radio singles’, so some sort of artistic journey. ‘An evening with Rave Radio’ could be an option? Haha.
Any plans to hit the road?
Always!! We’re embarking on an Asian tour in April, hitting the Philippines, Thailand, China and Macau then in July doing our first European tour starting at Electric Love festival in Austria. Very excited for that!
What else is happening next in Rave Radio’s world?
Dropping our music video for Morning Light and straight after that another song called Make It Better, a catchy as f**k breakup song we’re really excited about!
