Hey, tell us a bit about yourself.
What’s up! We’re an indie surf pop band from all over (with and Australian singer) that formed in LA around four years ago. We’ve just finished recording our new EP – packed full of twangalicious riffs, our first single came out two weeks ago and we’re here to make you give a f@*k!
Where did the new single come from?
This song is written about the struggle in LA which I think most people in this city can relate to. It’s about the moment you realise no one really cares about your problems and you have no choice but to sort it out or go home. So many people in this city are going off blind faith that what they’re doing will work out in the end, and these lyrics kind of question that mentality. Are we even able to recognize when it has worked out or are we too busy worrying about the next thing? Success is a staircase, not a doorway and that harsh truth is a tough pill to swallow because we all want success RIGHT NOW.
Although the lyrics in this song are kind of serious and a bit of a cry for help, we were able to capture a really fun and upbeat vibe which I love. This was the first time we worked with a real producer and it made all the difference. He was the guiding light on this song and really helped us define our sound and set the tone for the rest of the EP. Goodbye sad boy grunge, hello twangy surf pop! – Xavier Brinkman (singer/songwriter)
Is there more content in the pipeline and what’s on the horizon for you?
Plenty! We have two more singles to release before the full five song EP comes out in September, accompanied by music videos, LA shows and a west coast tour in October. We are about to shoot the first music video for “Sort It Out” and are currently casting kids to play “younger us” in the video, should be fun – stay tuned! Releasing and promoting everything off this EP is really our main focus for the rest of this year and we’ll be doing everything we can to get the word out until our lyrics are stuck in your head FOREVER! hehe
