Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Next To You”?
Next to you was created because of our mom’s last relationship which she was in. We wanted to have something real to sing about and everyone can relate to and not just and fantasy things.After having to want a real true song , I Delano Atkins told her to write down what she was feeling about him and her emotions , then Dylan and I turn the negative feeling into a positive situation. After finding out what kind of song we wanted to sing we then created the melody and beat altogether in the studio.
Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?
This song was truly build around our mom and her feeling towards her last relationship and what she has been through. We also went for something we can relate to in a relationship and what you would want your significant other to do.
Any plans to release a video for the single?
Yes there is plans on releasing a video for sure, the music video is already in the works.
How was the recording and writing process?
The process was interesting because we got to learn different things about making your own music, coming up with our own melody which was very amazing to us because we never thought we had it in us to come up with our own melody. The writing aspect was great because we have two minds that think alike and would get the lines better so it would just automatically flow.
How your upbringing has influence your writing?
