INTERVIEW: braveweather

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

Hey! We’re great! Thank you so much for talking to us. We’ve been very busy over here preparing for this release and spending time in studio recording more.

Can you talk to us more about your upcoming single “rosecolored”?

Yeah, we’re really excited to be giving the world our 4th ever piece of music. We’re nervous to see how our fans respond to it, but there’s a lot of emotion and energy behind this song – we’re confident that our listeners will connect with it.

Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?

This is Christian – ’rosecolored’ is about accepting when its time to let go of someone, even if it means making some really difficult decisions. It talks specifically about how, even when you know that moving on from a relationship is the right decision, those memories can haunt you. I tend to have this problem. I’m a sentimental person – I see everything, even the bad relationships, through rose-colored lenses. In early 2020, my girlfriend and I came to a fork in the road in our relationship that forced us to take some time apart. I wasn’t sure where that was going to leave our relationship, but I wanted to put how I felt into my writing. I wrote two songs: one about staying together and working through our issues, and one about moving on – even if its really going to hurt. ‘rosecolored’ is the second song.

What was the recording process like?

We came into our studio sessions with our producer Andy Karpovck at the Audio Compound prepared with everything but the intro of the song. We didn’t end up changing very much from our home recorded demo in terms of song structure, but Andy brought the song to life with the mix. Tony really put a lot of soul into the drums… you can hear that in the breakdown.

How was the filming process and experience behind the video?

Well… if we must relive this… we spent about 6 hours filming in the freezing cold Colorado Mountains. We expected temperatures near Vail to be in the low 40’s, and that’s what a bunch of kids from Orlando, FL dressed for. When we arrived to -6 degree temps, I can’t say we were super excited to film, but we brushed it off and played Edward 40-Hands in sub-zero weather for a few hours.

What role does Orlando play in your music?

Orlando is home. The Orlando music scene is thriving and being surrounded by so many other talented bands inspires us and constantly pushes us to be better. Many of these bands and others in the scene (show promoters, organizers, etc) are close friends of ours. We’re proud to call Orlando our hometown.

What is it about 90s and 00s indie music that you enjoy so much?

I firmly believe that if you don’t feel something when you listen to music, you just haven’t found the right genre yet. Music is supposed to speak to you and evoke feelings. Indie music, emo, and a lot of punk and even hardcore music speaks to us on a deep level. We hope our songs make our listeners feel something.

Does the new single mean we can expect a new album – if so, how’s that coming along?

We live in the age of singles now. They seem to be the most reliable way to keep people listening at the moment, especially for a growing band. We’re very excited at the idea of releasing a full length or even an EP – the circumstances need to be right for that to make sense. We’re looking forward to shows and touring coming back so we have the opportunity to travel and promote an album.

Any tentative release date or title in mind?

We can’t talk specifics right now… We like to keep our cards close to the vest and surprise people when we can – especially since there are so many more people in the braveweather family now. The most we can say at the moment is that we’re really excited about some of the new songs beyond rosecolored. Keep your eyes peeled!

What else is happening next in braveweather’s world?

Well, we’re talking to you guys! And a whole bunch of other interesting people who have taken notice of us lately. Honestly we never expected Tiktok to give us the reach that it did, but just interacting with all our new fans and friends has been really rewarding. We’re really excited to continue forward and release new music to everyone who has shown us so much support in the last few months.
