Hello there! We have been great, thank you. How are you today?
Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Doing This My Own Way”?
Of course! This is about doing whatever it is you want to do in your own unique way. Everyone’s path is different and you come across a few bumps along the way but it’s about lifting yourself up from hardships to keep going.
Did any event in particular inspired you to write this song?
I guess maybe subconsciously there were events that inspired the song but creating music itself is a challenging career with many ups and downs and you have to find ways to keep motivated. I think the great thing about this song is how relatable it is for everyone. We didn’t want to be too specific lyrically.
Any plans to release a video for the single?
Potentially… We will see. If the opportunity is there then yes we would definitely be interested in doing a video.
How was the recording and writing process?
It was slightly longer than our first single. We wanted to create something that stayed consistent with the sound we had on “Oxygen”. We’re happy with the outcome as we feel we did that sonically and vocally. Once we had the beat sounding the way we wanted it we brought in Martin Luke Brown to help with the songwriting process and he really helped to freshen up our direction and purpose in this song.
How Bondax and SG LEWIS has influenced your writing?
We love those guys. I (Haides) remember meeting SG Lewis and was proper nervous. I listen to his music a lot and remember talking to him trying to think of things to say to keep to conversation going. He’s a really nice guy and a great artist. The best thing about electronic artists is that they find creative ways to break new ground and create unique music. They inspire you to try new things and push the boundaries.
Does the new single mean we can expect a new album – how’s that coming along?
EP… haha, We shall think about an album if we think it’s the right move for us. We’re happy to say that we are 90% there with finishing our EP. We may even release them as singles yet but as of now mixing and mastering is the final stage for us now but the main thing is that the songs are done.
Any tentative release date or title in mind?
It will most likely be released early 2019. No official date just yet. As for a title we haven’t given it too much thought but we are open to suggestions!
Any plans to hit the road?
We shall see. We want to be playing some shows soon but we want to make sure we get the live stuff right!
What else is happening next in Majestic Minds’ world?
There will be a couple Majestic Minds singles to come out soon and we will be working on some more music too. We have some days in the studio coming up so we shall see what comes out from them.
