INTERVIEW: Rows

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

Im great thanks! busy working on new music as always!

Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Something More”?

Something More was a song a started a long time ago and never finished.. One day I was messing around on the piano and the old song popped into my head. For some reason it felt really fresh and the rest of the first verse and chorus poured out. It’s a song about that silver lining after a break up but also about realizing that maybe the other person is waiting on something better so maybe you should move on. I produced it the same day and that version is pretty much what you’re hearing now. The guys at WaxLTD studios helped me put the finishing touches on the song and mix and now its out in the world and I couldn’t be happier with it.

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

Well like all of my songs it’s inspired by real life. I’ve had my share of breakups and heartbreak. This song in particular is more of a look at a few moments in my life where I felt like I wasn’t good enough and how I got passed it.

Why naming the album after this track in particular?

This song felt like the crux of the EP so naturally it felt right to name it after the song. It felt like it gave the other songs around it more credibility. Something so honest and vulnerable always gets you closer to the pulse of what an artist is really trying to say.

How was the recording and writing process?

Like I mentioned before, it wasn’t the typical life of a song. I started it a few years ago and got stuck pretty quickly. Then one day at the piano a few years later, it came back to me and just sort of spilled out. I produce in my bedroom studio so naturally I started right away and finished a pretty close version to what you’re hearing now. After tracking real drums in the studio and then getting a great mix on it from Wax LTD, the song felt like it had a triumphant re-birth.

What role does LA play in your music?

I’ve been going out to LA since I was 16 and could drive. I used to skate a lot which is what originally brought me out of the suburbs and into the city. However pretty quickly I saw my first concert in LA which if I remember correctly was a punk band called Anti-Flag. I think inadvertently LA has had an influence on my art ever since. I’ve actually never lived in the city so keeping it at arms reach has always left me feeling romantic about LA.

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

REAL LIFE 🙂

Any plans to hit the road?

At the moment we don’t have any tours booked but are looking to start hopefully this fall or spring of next year.

What else is happening next in Rows’ world?

New music of course! I’m actually taking a break from writing to write this interview so hopefully this year you will hear some new music 😉
