Q1. Hi guys, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?
Hey! We are really good, thank you – it’s been a crazy few weeks!
Q2. Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Everything”?
Where to start!?! We released Everything (our debut single) just over a month ago. Since then it has been supported by radio stations across the UK and Europe (including Radio 1) , it is currently featured on major playlists across the Spotify and Apple Music streaming platforms as well as being the opening song this years seasons Love Island… but most importantly, people seem to love it as much as we do!
Q3. Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?
The inspiration for ‘Everything’ came when we were closing a DJ set with Donna Lewis – I Love You, Always Forever in a club in Reading. Exactly 2 minutes and 38 seconds into that song, there is powerful section of vocals and piano. We both looked at each other and said – “We could do something with that…”
Q4. Any plans to release any sort of video for the track?
Yes! As we are writing this, we are finalising the edit for the official video. The concept is based around the reunions of different people, after having been apart for so long – something that we feel so strongly about, particularly at this point in time. We can’t wait for people to see it!
Q5. How was the recording and writing process?
The process of putting the track together was fascinating for us. It’s the first original production we have produced and we were privileged enough to be able to work with some super talented people along the way. After the first session we did, we had gone from a blank screen in logic to a finished demo, all within 6 hours. It was crazy to be able to play the first version in our car on the way home from the studio!
Q6. With your music getting so much momentum – does that put any pressure on you as you work on a new material or rather the opposite?
With the reaction we have had from “Everything” and the success it has had so far, it certainly does put pressure on us to deliver a decent follow up single. Track 2 was at demo stage over a year and a half ago and is currently being worked on to get finished. We love it as much as “Everything” and cannot wait for everyone to hear it!
Q7. Does the new single mean we can expect a new material – how’s that coming along?
We are hoping to release towards the end of this year but we can’t give the title away, as that would possibly give a clue to the final production 😉
Q8 What else is happening next in Switch Disco’s world?
Thankfully, our world is now mainly consisting of live shows. Playing music to a real audience is something that we were deprived of for so long. We missed it SO much and are unbelievably grateful that nightclubs and festivals have returned here in the UK. Aside from DJ sets, we will just continue to push our brand forward using all the social media tools available to us – we still have far to go!
