Hi Devin, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?
Apocalypse aside, life is pretty good! I really miss the world.
Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Best Friends”?
“Best Friends” is a love song that I wrote to myself. I wrote it in Mexico about a year ago, and I have been anxiously waiting to release this! I feel like the world needs a self-love song now more than ever.
Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?
Yup! I ate a weed brownie in Mexico at my best friend’s bachelor party and started to trip out. I had one of those moments where I looked in the mirror and said to myself, “It’s just me and you” and had the best time after that.
Any plans to release any sort of video for the track?
Oh, we definitely have an amazing/hilarious video concept in the works!
How was the recording and writing process?
It was one of my favorite song processes ever. I wrote and recorded it with amazing writers and producers: Duck Leary, Derek Fuhrmann, and Joel Adams.
What role does Long Beach play in your music?
EVERYTHING. I owe the LBC so much. Growing up in a place where art, culture, and diversity collide gave me a super-unique view of the world and style in general.
Do you tend to take a different approach when writing in English rather than in Spanish?
Not necessarily. When an inspiration or song idea comes, I usually just roll with it organically whether it’s in English or Spanish.
What else is happening next in Devin Kirtz’ world?
I am actually teaming up with Nike and getting ready to set 5 soccer Guinness World Records! I am not allowed to tell you which records I am breaking yet, but i am going to be doing it in Los Angeles, and you can stay tuned by following me on instagram @DevinKirtz.
