Welcome to BuzzMusic, StaticHeadz. The energy you convey in your song, "Fake Face," has us feeling the intricacy that's shed in the composition. What inspired you to make this song the lead single from the project?
Out of all the tracks on the album, this song sticks out the most to us as a single and did so from the first time we first got the mix back. It has a great blend of all of our individual styles and influences, and we like to think we made an innovative and cohesive track. It's got hip-hop-inspired verses, with a big, catchy hook for you to sing along to in the chorus. We wanted it to be the first track we released because it's very aggressive and in your face, so it only made sense for us to release this song first so we could be putting that message out there.
In terms of creating an album versus a single record, what differences, if any, do you notice in the creative process?
Our creative process is USUALLY the same for each time we write music. Either Kevin or Cody will bring the skeleton of a song to the table, and then the rest of the band throws their two cents in. We almost always write the music first and then write lyrics once the structure is laid down. There are some exceptions, but typically our process is pretty consistent.
What moment or story influenced the storyline that we hear in "Fake Face"?
The song is essentially about dealing with anxiety and how it can consume your identity and give you a 'Fake Face."
How does this narrative speak into Static Headz as a band?
We like to think we talk about more serious topics such as anxiety, depression, and death in hopes to relate to our listeners on a much deeper level. Not to say that our music is necessarily sad to listen to, because we talk about overcoming life's hurdles and becoming a better person through those experiences.
With there being six of you contributing to the ultimate vision propelled through your music, how do each of you uplift the integrity of Static Headz while all remaining solo talents?
It's important in a band to maintain your role on a consistent basis, and for everyone to be contributing equally in order for the chemistry to work. This is why it's rare for bands to go the distance because it is quite difficult to keep everyone on the same page. We all try to contribute equally to band duties such as finances, songwriting, or posting on social media.
