Hi guys, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?
Olly: Great! Thank you very much. We just started to write our second album. It’s just the start, but I can’t wait to release it.
Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Monster’s Feeling”?
Olly: well, “MF” is the single for our second upcoming album. We released it and shoot a video for it the same year we released our first album “Paradox Intention”.
Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?
Olly: sure, it’s about my psychological emotions about how to live and not go crazy with the hard and grey reality from time to time. If we’re talking in a very simple way:)
How much deep into the horror films did you get to explore and dive into for the visuals of the song?
Olly: well, “monster’s feeling” is not about monsters or horror attitude at all. It’s just perhaps weird figure of speech.
How was the filming process and experience behind the video?
Olly: it was pretty nice cause The video is pretty simple. We didn’t have a video in black room as every band, so we just had to film it haha
How was the recording and writing process?
Olly: it was good and pretty simple for this song, and it’s very precious cause it’s not so every time.
What role does St. Petersburgh play in your music?
Olly: good question. I reflect about it from time to time. It’s not surprising that Saint-petersburg is really dark city. There’s no sun sometimes at all at the day. Just some pale sunbeams. So, even me as a lover of darkness really tired of that. Cause you know it’s all good in the balance. But of course its not totally impact on our music. But I’m sure there’s something dark and magical in our music from our place of living. First of all, darkness is very inspiring and if i can say like that, it’s my best friend.
Does the new single mean we can expect a new material – how’s that coming along?
Olly: yes! We will release an album at the end of this year.
Any tentative release date or title in mind?
Olly: not now, let me keep it top secret in the very beginning of the creation.
Any plans to hit the road?
Olly: sure! We’ll hit the road in Europe on spring. Don’t miss the dates!
What else is happening next in The End of Melancholy’s world?
