Considering the current political climate, the shear lack of honor, dignity, accountability, and empathy for all life. I would say we are just happy to be alive and humbled to still be part of a world where we can reach for what we love. And yourself? : )
Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Know It All”?
This song is about arrogance, and ego and how those elements of your personality are for the most part, the origins of ones own downfall and the destruction of relationships and ability to connect. If you think you know everything then you have stopped listening. This, I have found is futile.
We worked on this song with Jared Scharff and Andrew Williams. Both fantastic producers and we owe a lot to them both. I have looked up to Jared as one of the finest musicians I have had the pleasure of meeting, and he hooked us up with drew who has a unbeatable ear. We co produced with them.
The track goes after the current president in the bridge and stays more open to many of us I think for the most part, I hope that people are inspired by it, or just enjoy listening.
Did any event in particular inspired you to write this song?
When trump was being braggadocios as he often is, and was highlighting his education background, he used a term I had only heard from the likes of children who are just learning linguistic skills. He said “I know words, I have the best words” that’s when I knew we were all in trouble, and I laughed.
Any plans to release a video for the single?
We have a studio session video that is being released now as well.
The single comes off your new album Yourbody – what’s the story behind the title?
The EP “Yourbody” is about looking outward, it’s about possession, it examines how we attempt to hold on to things that will sooner or later slip away.
How was the recording and writing process?
It starts with me creating a song, Omer and I craft that from there and we got the chance to work with Jared and drew for some of these tracks and did some on our own. We flush things out live usually after Omer and me have gotten it to a point that we believe is focused.
We are so grateful to the people we were able to work with on this first EP.
What role does NYC play in your writing?
Anywhere we are we miss where we are not, NYC, is a pressure cooker. I grew up in Alaska. And I long for silence but am fueled by the static of this city.
What aspect of possession and bitterness did you get to explore on this record?
I think that’s a hard question to answer with out giving too much away. My interpretation of how relationships end, and how hurt people hurt people, these are different for every individual. I hope that everyone who listens finds there own meaning and resolve.
Any plans to hit the road?
Always, as soon as the moment is right.
