INTERVIEW: Breathe Carolina

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

We’ve been good, working on new music, staying healthy and just doing what we can to stay sane without being able to play shows!

From all the songs out there, why did you choose to pay your own rendition to J Lo’s “IF U”?

It’s just such a classic song we wanted to pay tribute to it and bring it to some people that maybe didn’t know about the original.

What was the approach you went after with this song?

We all really wanted to just have fun with it while giving it our own spin.

How did you go on balancing the original with your own?

In the original, JLo has such passion and energy, we definitely wanted to make sure we were bringing the same with this version. We wanted to create a totally new vibe with the production while still telling the story and also give the people at home something they can dance to this summer!

How was the recording and writing process?

We are all from different countries and with the pandemic, we had to do it all remotely! Even without being able to be in the same room to work on it, we love how it came out!

What was it like to work with Robert Falcon and Conor Maynard? How did those relationships develop?

We knew we wanted to do something again with Robert Falcon after our song “My Love”. Everything really clicked from the very beginning of working on this one and after Robert sent over an idea, we knew Conor would be perfect for the vocals. It all fell into place in just the right way, we had a great time working together!

How did they get to influence the song?

Robert’s added production and Conor’s vocals both really help carry the power and energy of the song all the way through!

What role does Denver play in your music?

Denver is always is an influence in what we create since it’s where I (Dave) grew up and where Breathe Carolina first started! We always love spending time in Denver and we can’t wait to come back and play some shows out there soon.

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

You know it!! We have quite a bit in store for the rest of the year..

Any plans to hit the road?

As soon as it is safe for us and everyone coming to see us, we will be making it out to anywhere and everywhere we can!

What else is happening next in Breathe Carolina’ world?

We have some very exciting releases and remixes on the way and are planning some special livestreams as well! Looking forward to sharing it all with the world soon!
