Welcome to BuzzMusic, MAYBE MAY. We're incredibly excited to chat with you about your latest gripping single, "Survive, Satellite." What inspired your group to write a song that reminds listeners of hope and to keep pushing forward? Thanks, BuzzMusic – you guys are the coolest! Behind the scenes, we’ve been blessed as a band as well as individuals & I suppose our music is the outward reflection of that. In the past few years, have written a lot of positive lyrics & given the state of the world lately, more positivity in music can’t hurt right? Regarding your band's creative process for "Survive, Satellite," what was it like working with producer Kevin Dietz? How did he bring your visions to life? Kevin is a gem, even though he doesn’t like Blink182 – putting that aside, working with him has been a blast! He has been on some really cool projects in the past so we were thrilled that he decided to give us attention. His laid-back playful nature made us really enjoy the studio process & bring our vision to life quite organically. Check him out at www.kevindietzmusic.com What did your mastering process look like when working alongside Noah Mintz for "Survive, Satellite?" What was your experience like? If you’re in Canada, there’s 2…maybe 3 people that everyone goes to for mastering - Noah is on top of that list, having mastered songs by the biggest artists around. It was a real smooth experience with Noah putting that finesse on our songs like we’ve never had before. Does your band usually cook up singles/projects that inspire the listener, similar to "Survive, Satellite?" Are songs like this a solid example of the music you tend to create? We haven’t always had an obvious ‘positive spin’ or ‘inspirational message’ in our songs but it’s certainly a direction we’ve gone in as of late. Last year, we released a collaborative single that addressed the rise in people’s needs due to the pandemic, raising money for the local food bank. Our songs this year & next will focus on mental health issues & challenges. If we can give people something a bit more meaningful than just a catchy tune, we’re all about it! Sound-wise, we tend to dabble in a bit of hard rock, pop-punk & even acoustic stuff. What's your favorite release of 2021 so far, from an independent artist you admire? Everyone needs to check out LIVING DEAD GIRL, with who we played our last gig with in April 2020. Their debut album comes out next month & they have a couple of killer videos/singles out.
