Great thanks! Just released our new single so we’re pretty busy but psyched!
Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Loving It”?
It’s a song about wanting to be with someone, and about that being impossible due to the fact that life is complicated… That’s the short version haha.
Did any event in particular inspired you to write this song?
Not really. Our songs are usually (and this one in particular) a kind of patchwork of our personal experiences. They’re a distillation of feelings and situations that everyone has had, including us, cast into a 3(ish) minute story.
Any plans to release a video for the single?
Yes! Its currently being edited in fact!
How was the recording and writing process?
The chorus came together really quickly actually. I think we wrote that and another version of the verses and a bridge in one night.
But when we came back the next day, something didn’t feel right. The parts were good but the flow of the song wasn’t. We ended up using the chords from that bridge in the verses, and wrote a new bridge. And that’s the version that’s out there now.
What role does Amsterdam play in your writing?
Amsterdam is a pretty small city (especially compared to other capitals in the world) and we live very close to each other and our studio. We do everything on foot or by bike so that’s pretty relaxed. In general Amsterdam is a pretty relaxed place, filled with people who are creative and willing to make cool stuff together. That vibe definitely translates to our music.
Does the new single mean we can expect a new material – how’s that coming along?
Yeah definitely, we’ll release another song at the end of this summer
Any tentative release date or title in mind?
No comment. (but its called Jay-Z and will be out 31st August).
Any plans to hit the road?
We just played a couple of live radio sessions and we’re doing a show in Amsterdam on the 4th September along with our good friends Zeeland (go check them out if you don’t know them already!)
What else is happening next in BUNGALOW’s world?
Camille just got a new place so he’s busy moving house.
Other than that we’re writing new stuff, finishing the video for ‘Loving It’ and preparing for September 4th! And it’s about a million degrees in Amsterdam at the moment so trying not to melt is high on our list or priorities as well.
