INTERVIEW: IGLOO

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

Great cheers. It’s very strange times, but we are healthy and happy!

Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Feed My Brain”? Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?

The song is about being in a relationship that isn’t intellectually satisfying. That growing feeling of discomfort when you’re unsure how to voice this concern.

How was the filming process and experience behind the video?

The video was a lot of fun to make. It was an unplanned day out, just the two of us with a GoPro and DSLR.

How was the recording and writing process?

Our writing process tends to be pretty off the cuff, bouncing ideas off each other in the studio and this song was no different.

How has Placebo and Arctic Monkeys influenced your writing?

The melancholy, space and atmosphere of Placebo, mixed with the punchy and timeless riffs of Arctic Monkeys, have an influence on everyone. Don’t they?

What role does the UK play in your music?

Unfortunately, rather little. The scene feels like it has shifted in the last 20 years. Unless you have the ‘right’ look and correct number of social media likes, it is very hard to get gigs.

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

We have a couple of singles in the bank, ready to go. Our sound seems to be constantly evolving and changing as we write new songs every week, so the plan is to get back in the studio soon.

Any tentative release date or title in mind?

The plan is to get both out in the next 6-8 months. Tracks are; Goldfish and Feed My Brain.

Any plans to hit the road?

In this current climate, it looks more like we will be doing virtual shows.

What else is happening next in IGLOO’s world?

Nothing more dramatic than any one of your listeners/readers are experiencing right now. Stay safe, people!
