INTERVIEW: Betical

Hi guys, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?

Great ! Thanks for the talk.

Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Surrender”?

Sure! Surrender is the third track of our first EP “Strangers in the night”.

When we were in the studio, we wanted to make a never ending build-up with a strong cinematic or old school video game’s vibe that could bring you emotions from the very first note, until the last.

Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?

We were listening to a lot of breakbeat and jungle at the time and we were fascinating by the drums and the old school grain they’ve got and we wanted to make our own interpretation.

What made you want to go for a gaming and immersive approach?

It was important for us to develop a strong and immersive universe around this track. The aesthetic of a retro video game works perfectly with the atmosphere we were seeking. It was also a possibility to work on an unusual layout which breaks with traditional music video.

Was it easy to pull out?

We had to create lots of visuals and animation to support the video. It was a lot of work, but a challenging opportunity to develop our visual identity.

How was the filming process and experience behind the video?

We made trip in the Canary Islands and we shot many rushes from this place. After that, most of the editing and animations were made in our studio.

How was the recording and writing process?

It was quit tough to be honest, we did a lot of versions of this track. The first idea came really quickly, but we reworked the structure many times.

Do you tend to take a different approach when you are collaborating with someone else rather than in your own?

We really try to respect the universe of the people we are collaborating with, to add something new to our production. We also don’t really like to work with a distance, it’s sometimes complicated to organise a meeting, but we believe the result is more personal.

Does the new single mean we can expect a new material – how’s that coming along?

We just released our EP “Strangers in the night” including our new single Strangers.

Any tentative release date or title in mind?

We are working on the next singles and EP. We’ve got tons of demos that need to be refined and finished. But we will be able to release new music soon.

What else is happening next in Betical’s world?

We’re working a lot on our live. It will definitely be the next big step for us.
