Hi there, we are quite well and enthusiastic of how things are going. It’s a pleasure to be interviewed by you, guys!
Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Under Tons”?
It’s the first of many more releases. With Under Tons we want to present something different from the music around and look forward to people reaction. Up to now the response has been more positive than expected. That means that a song like Under Tons can still catch people attention…beside their taste. What we say about it is: a bitter medicine that doesn’t give any relief or cure – it might have some side effects, but it depends on who will listen to it
Did any event in particular inspired you to write this song?
I would say birth, followed by growing up and the simple observation on how life digs deep into you, often leaving empty holes.
Any plans to release a video for the single?
Not for this one, or maybe yes, who knows…we are already looking forward to releasing our next one in June.
How was the recording and writing process?
Well, recording has been the hardest part of the job. We have been working on this production for long. It has been a very interesting collaboration with our producer (Andrea Lepori), and we all managed to release something on which we are putting a lot of hopes and effort. Your writing style builds your identity and when your intention is to share yourself through your songs it’s hard to compromise, but at the same time, experimenting is fun and sometimes leads into unpredictable undiscovered fields that surprize and please you.
How did you get to blend your classic influences with the modern?
When we write a song we don’t really search for a strategic way of doing it. We don’t consider its genre or how commercial it could be. It’s a real pure expression of our state of mind and only after we discover at which genres it belongs. So, your question is a mystery to us too.
Does the new single mean we can expect a new material – how’s that coming along?
Sure! This is only the first of many more songs. In June we will be releasing a new single and then, in September, we would like to release and album. Let’s see what is going to happen.
What else is happening next in Desert Clouds’ world?
At the end of June we will release a new single and a video, than we will be playing around UK and in September we have planned to release an album followed by an European Tour!
