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

Hey VENTS! We’re good!

Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Money From Home”?

What would you like to know?

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

The song is about looking back on time spent with somebody a long while ago, and reflecting on how the relationship unravelled, and how things changed. It’s both melancholic and nostalgic. I consider it a song about fondly saying goodbye to someone.

Was this always intended to be a break up song or it rather evolve into it?

Yeah, it was always going to be about that. But It’s about older memories as well. Happier times and all that.

Any plans to release a video for the single?

We have released a video, directed by an exceptionally talented Glasgow artist called Dylan Moore. It’s live on youtube, with a nice premiere by M Magazine.

How was the recording and writing process?

 It all came together pretty smoothly. It evolved gradually but steadily into its final arrangement. We then recorded it at Chem19 with a brilliant producer called Paul Savage who we have a history with. Though in the studio we made a few last minute changes, such as adding the middle 8 which has a different time signature to the rest of the song.

What role does Glasgow play in your music?

It’s good to be surrounded by talented bands and to be able to go to gigs frequently. It’s important for us to live together as well, which we have done for the last 5 years, for the purpose of writing.

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

There’s new material coming real soon, which is already recorded. We’re also writing a lot at the moment, so a set full of shiny new tunes can be expected.

Any tentative release date or title in mind?

I can’t say yet I’m afraid!

Any plans to hit the road?

We’ve got some pretty exciting support slots to announce soon, plus a headline show on the 15th of June at the Mash House in Edinburgh. That’s gonna be wild.

What else is happening next in ACRYLIC’s world?

Banging new tunes and big shows, it’s exciting!
