How does “Neptune” vary from the music you released earlier this year?
Brad: This track really puts our energy on display. I believe it captures the experimental elements of the band and it really keeps you on your toes. The chorus is one of my favorite choruses we have written to date. To me, it is incredibly catchy and the lyrics are thought-provoking.
Were there any conscious decisions made in regard to changing or evolving your sound with this release? Or was the writing/recording process a natural evolution?
Jam: I think if anything we were forced to allow this song to develop and evolve over time. The longest I spent in a studio up until this band was around a month. We’ve been writing and rewriting this song over the last few years and the message of this song has changed drastically in that time.
Do you feel as if “Neptune” is the best representation of who Cascadent is now, compared to a few months back?
Jonathan: Yes and no. We are on a long journey. This song was actually written instrumentally a while back, so I have different feelings for it than people who would hear it for the first time. With that being said, keep an eye out for more things we have in store but enjoy this part with us.
Brad: Artists tend to feel like every new release represents who they are at that moment. I feel like this release makes sense for us right now. However, we are growing and changing rapidly as a group. We really sharpen each other.
With the introduction of new vocalist Bradley Pallone, how has the dynamic within the band changed?
Jonathan: I will only comment that it worked for us. Every band experience is subjective. The previous vocalists are doing amazing things on their own so support The Mobtones and That's the Ticket! You will not be disappointed. They are seriously talented
Do you plan on touring at all to promote this release, or will that be a future goal?
Sam: Yes, we do plan on touring again very soon. We have another release slated for later in the year, so we will be pushing these releases. We hope to tour the Northeast next.
How would you describe “Neptune” in three words?
Brad: Aggressive, catchy and contemplative.
