Can you talk to us more about your latest single “The Call”? Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?
Funny story actually; I was chatting with a friend and we started sending us silly voicenotes to find out which one of us had the best “Mika falsetto”. After being idiots for a while, my friend told me “Dude, I bet you can’t make a song out of those voicenotes ” … So I created a pad with with the voicenotes and made the lead pad of the song.
Any plans to release a video for the single?
Absolutely. As a matter of fact the video is in the editing process at this moment. It should be ready shortly.
How was the recording and writing process?
It was fun actually. This is the first song that we wrote and record all together in the same country. When we wrote the first EP, Cial was living in Panama, Mebs in Venezuela and I was in Madrid… So as you can imagine, it was a lot harder and tedious back then.
