Why was “Sinking” chosen as the lead single off your upcoming EP?
We thought Sinking would be the best choice for the single because it was probably the most personal song we’ve ever written. It also embodies the general theme of this EP and the direction we’re moving as a band.
Which EP track do you think represents Brookline’s sound as a whole?
That’s a tough question. Lucid probably is the best representation of our musical style. Sinking is a close second though, for sure. The differences in the two songs show our wide range of influence across the band, and our writing could go either way at any time.
Do you plan to release any other singles/music videos in this EP cycle?
Sinking is coming out on February 1st, and then the full EP will be available for download on February 22nd. After that we will be releasing a music video for Sinking on March 5th.
What was the recording process like for “Fade”?
We started with demos recorded at practice and used them to program drums, then recorded guitars and bass over that. Next we did the live drums and finally, the vocals. It was a pretty smooth process; we’ve been working with Jake Mannix for a long time now in various projects so we all work together pretty well.
Was it difficult to choose which tracks to put on the record?
To be honest, not really. We had some of these songs written with minor differences before we changed our line up this past fall. Originally we were a four piece with a different singer and Dae playing bass. Once we got Tommy and Matt in the band, we tweaked the songs to better fit Tommy’s vocal style and let Dae add in his guitar parts. We felt these four songs as a whole were a good representation of the new sound and worked really well together as a small conceptual EP.
