Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Last Forever”?
“Last Forever” takes its inspiration from melancholy both in its theme and style. I grew up in the 80’s listening to a lot of music that had a very specific production style. The sound to me in particular feels like it belongs in a colourful world where it’s always raining; not in a sad way but more introspective and introverted.
Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?
Nothing in particular that I can recall but it’s always difficult to try and place certain things from a memory perspective when writing is such a cerebral and mentally demanding process.
Any plans to release a video for the single?
Not currently but I would never say no to anyone’s fantastic cinematic idea.
How was the recording and writing process?
Quite a lot of fun. It was a fresh collaboration between myself and producer Matt Fudge and we both seem to come at writing songs from almost opposing perspectives. This resulted in allowing us to find an equilibrium we would not have stumbled upon otherwise.
What role does Toronto play in your music?
Toronto has a lot of dynamics in its layout and as I tend to run a lot, I find inspiration from moving throughout the city on foot. From its big city aspect to the diversity in each neighbourhood, there’s something to discover or latch yourself onto creatively speaking if you’re willing to look for it.
Does the new single mean we can expect a new material – how’s that coming along?
Always writing and creating new material. The challenge now seems to be finding out the best way to release it.
Any tentative release date or title in mind?
Any plans to hit the road?
Not as of yet!
What else is happening next in Pyramid Tropic’s world?
As Pyramid Tropic started and seems to exist as a side project of sorts, there will likely be a few other releases of projects related to it before the next PT single comes around again 🙂
