The band feel on top of the world at the minute, we have had such a good reaction to our music and performance with well known emo outfit as it is that we can’t believe how well things are moving for the band and the reaction to our music.
Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Talk of the Town”?
Colourful, Dark, Dirty but with a message, you have your typical love track then you have this, envy and anger with a touch of melody. The song and the neon on the video reflects how infected you can get by somebody who is a poison to your life. The colour in the video reflects how much you have been infected by that individual and as the track goes on its more colourful but more dark in message. On the plus there is a strong sounding rock track that shows energy and a catchy chorus. The band have enjoyed making this video and have loved the fact the BBC have got on side with the song.
Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?
Past experiences in life with people whether it be in partnership in business or sometimes even in family, talk of the town as a phrase is a broad message, but also reflects how a certain mind can feel when something is going on in your life and you feel everybody is talking about it or has a position on a situation you or an individual is going through.
How was the filming process and experience behind the video?
Cold in a barn in a farm that the bass player was working on for landscape gardening until we play download of course, we were offered the site for nothing when we knew it would suit we thought why not, The film crew involves a brother of the band anyway and the company live action media are so beautifully off the cuff it works, we turned up they briefed us on what they wanted and we went with it. Although local residents come and said we couldn’t hit the drums any longer so our drummer had two takes of magic which worked. A great company to work with, we had an alt model Jade who was the perfect fit and the lighting from Jamie Borland who is the most magically sarcastic man we have ever met that it just clicked.
How was the recording and writing process?
The drummer had the music down and the melody for the chorus, we think he was peeved about a chick he never got until he kissed the hot model on the video. The band went in and got the lyrics down other than the chorus that the drummer was strong on and ooh la la a Victoria sponge was baked.
How You Me At Six and Deaf Havana has influence your writing?
