What was the writing and recording process like for your new single “Victoria”?
After gathering my thoughts on what I wanted to write about, Victoria came very naturally to me.
It was one of those songs where the lyrics just flowed through my brain and spilled onto the paper.
I find when that happens, it's a sign of a sincere song.
As far as the recording process I can safely say it was unlike anything we have done thus far. The reason for that is because we went into the studio with a solid understanding of the direction we wanted to go in, with no doubts on our parts or lyrics. Everything had really been set in stone after writing it and performing it live quite a few times.
How was this creative process different from prior releases you’ve worked on?
I don't think that the creative writing process was any different. What was different about it was how confident we felt that our fan base would enjoy this song. We felt like the message was something that was near and dear to all of our hearts, a message that we wanted to convey to all our listeners.
What is the overall message in “Victoria” and how does it differ from other topics you’ve written about?
Contrary to popular belief, this song is not about a girl named Victoria, but instead the Latin spelling of Victory. This is a song about overcoming what you once thought you couldn't. It's about the heavy silhouette of society telling you how you should live your life, and others telling you to stay in this safe lane that a majority of people follow because of how we are all raised. This is a song about following your dreams, no matter how big or how small. It's a song that I hope will inspire people to look into the mirror every morning, and no matter your situation, saying that i can make today a victory.
Do you feel like the track best represents who The Spring is?
Definitely. From the flowing melodies, to a catchy chorus that makes you want to sing along, we feel this song accurately represents our sound, and what we stand for.
You’ve been playing some regional shows recently. How do you capture your live energy on recordings?
By being exactly who we are. Not changing a single thing. The passion that you see on stage, is the same emotion and energy that we bring into the studio. Every lyric that moves you, any guitar lick that you vibe with, is performed with the same amount of energy and love that we strive to represent on stage.
Will “Victoria” be part of a larger body of work? What are your release plans for the remaining months of 2019?
There has been lots of talk about a full studio album and we couldn't be more excited. Our plans for 2019 is to continue to release more music, and to reach out to all of our fans by performing live all around the country. We want to continue to connect with every single one of our listeners, either in person, or through our recordings.
