Why was “When I’m Lonely” chosen as a single?
‘When I’m Lonely’ was chosen because its a good medium to the overall sound of this EP. Not to mention we wanted to give everyone a little taste of some of the type of emotion and the thought process behind our new songs. With this new record we really wanted to write and think about things from a different perspective than what most people tend to.
Do you think “When I’m Lonely” is the best representation of the band’s current sound?
I wouldnt say its the best representation of the bands current sound, but its a important part of the sound. We have grown musically and the one thing we wanted was for everything to sound cohesive but each song to still have its own identity! ‘When I’m Lonely’ is just the tip of the iceberg for our new sound in my opinion.
What was the writing process like for the track?
It was a lot of fun and just very chill. When we went into the studio in each step of this songs creation it was always a very chill vibe. The initial writing of the song with Zane and Wes of The Stu in Greensboro, NC was cool because i felt like this was the first song that truly helped me find my true voice something that i can say is mine!
What do you want people to take away from “When I’m Lonely”?
You know that’s a hard question to answer. I guess this big thing would be that we all go through different stages in life, whether its fighting love over lust, or just being able to admit that we are lonely or scared. Its about really admitting to yourself and being open about how you feel. I feel like today so many people have become closed off to sharing true emotion or fears because we want to maintain a hard exterior and appear stronger than we are. Just don’t be afraid to fight these battles head on.
Will there be any touring to support your new releases?
As of now we are looking to maybe hit the surrounding areas on some weekend runs. But no big touring plans at the moment as we are preparing to release more music. But definitely in the summer!
