Hey! Very well thank you. Working through the summer.
Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Ready For It”?
It’s a garage rock trap song. I wrote it to the beat of a Lil Uzi Vert song. I love rock so much and my world opened up to trap, so I wanted to fuse the two. Ready for it baby.
Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?
It’s inspired by a turbulent relationship. Someone’s always chasing, I wanted to level the playing field and be honest.
Any plans to release a video for the single?
For sure. Will you feature it when I do?
How was the recording and writing process?
I wrote it in a day. And recording was relatively simple because the idea was strong and intuitive.
What was it like to work with Ben Baptie and Benji Miller? How did those relationships develop?
Ben Baptie is a genius. He can breathe life into anything. He can literally take a song on to the next level, and he does so daily. Benji Miller is full of ideas and an awesome presence in the studio. It was a pleasure to work with both of them. The relationships formed naturally, and I personally really cherish them both.
How much did they get to influence the song?
A lot. Everything Ben Baptie touches sounds like gold, some of the most mind-bending elements were added by Ben. And Benji Miller really helped the song get to places that it couldn’t have gone to without him. They both helped me beat my own hang ups and the song is what it is because of them.
How has Gorillaz and Post Malone influenced your writing?
The Gorillaz are just overflowing with London sound and they’re a great point of reference. Post Malone has laid the blueprint for trap rock. But he comes from the other way. I wanna do the same thing but from the garage. Not from the studio.
Known for playing with different genres – how do you go on balancing all these different influences together?
I make the song in every genre and rip out chunks until it looks like my Frankenstein.
Does the new single mean we can expect a new material – how’s that coming along?
New stuff is coming. I just finished single 3. It’s a battle. I hope it’s worth it for everyone.
Any tentative release date or title in mind?
I’m hoping we’ll get another one out in September.
Any plans to hit the road?
I hope so!
What else is happening next in George Eve’s world?
I’ve spent most of this summer in front of a laptop! I can’t wait to finish all these songs!
