Thanks! It’s been a cold long, winter up here in the north- But that`s how we like it!
Can you talk to us more about your song “It’ll Be Alright”?
It’s a song that has been in the loop for many years; it was originally meant to be released in 2013. We were missing a part in the song, and the lyrics were not solved until just recently. Actually, our manager said “this has to be a positive anthem”, and from there it did itself!
Did any event inspire you to write this song?
There is no huge story background story; just waking up on a normal day, getting dressed as normal and then off to work in the studio. After the vibe gets going and the pieces start to fit, is when the music becomes magic.
Any plans to release a video for the track?
We have a lyric video for this one, as well as some small clips for the socials. There are no huge plans for an official video yet.
How was the recording and writing process?
The basics came together pretty fast (chords, drums, melody), but we usually get stuck with details. It’s always most tedious trying to get the right vocals to go with the right sound. I guess we learn everyday!
What role does Norway play in your music?
It played a huge role. The 4 seasons are really different here and that gets you in all kinds of different moods. Nothing beats the mood of a cold dark winter!
Does the new single mean we can expect new material – how’s that coming along?
A lot of new songs are in the making, along with something we never have done before, as well. We`ll leave that one hanging!
Is there a tentative release date or title in mind?
Right now it’s tentatively going to be in the middle of May but that can quickly change in the music industry!
Any plans to hit the road? We are doing small and big festivals in Norway this year, so a few one-off gigs but no official tours as of yet. It`s pretty normal in the summer here in Norway.
What else is happening next in Donkeyboy´s world?
We always have different stuff going on! Two members are part time streamers on Twitch under the name «Norwegian Thunderboys», another has a musical side project called «RatCity» and the guitar player runs a huge studio for bands/producers.
