Hey, tell us a bit about yourself.
McCall and I met our last year of college in Boston. We bonded over our interest in music (specifically pop punk from the 2000’s) and decided to try writing together late 2016. We formed our sound around our first track and hope to develop a more well defined sound as we continue to write together.
Where did the new single come from?
This song started out as a plucked riff over a vocal pad in Garageband. When McCall sent me the idea, I instantly fell in love with it. We pulled the track into Pro Tools and started working from there. It was just the intro riff at first, but once we figured out the pre-chorus/chorus riff the song really started to flow.
The meaning behind the track changed over the course of production. What started out as a song about grand expectations and big dreams morphed into one about escaping from reality through those dreams. This was in part due to the tumultuous year that was 2016 and reminiscing about past relationships.
We’re really happy about the direction that the track took in the end even though it’s kind of hard to categorize. It’s not really EDM and it’s not indie pop, it’s somewhere in between. This parallels the symbolism in the song, stuck in limbo between dreams and reality.
Is there more content in the pipeline?
Our next track is currently in the works! “without you” was really helpful for getting feedback and helping us solidify our sound and we’re hoping to build off of that with this next track.
What’s on the horizon for you?
This is our first release, so we’re very excited to see where it takes us. We’ve both released covers and rock/pop tracks before, but never something electronic focused. Electronic music is a really exciting genre because there are so many more sounds at your disposal. This is our first venture into a whole new world of production, so there’s definitely more to come.
