Hey guys! Welcome to BuzzMusic. Can you start by telling us more about how you two met?
The story of how we met is pretty funny, I suppose one day when we were very young Kyle would have been playing Super Mario 3 on Nintendo, when his parents walked in wielding what they called "A new bundle of joy" that bundle of joy had a name, it's name was Ben, & Ben was Kyles younger brother and we've known each other ever since.
Where are you from? What’s the music scene like there?
We are from Toronto, Ontario. The scene is pretty vibrant there are a lot of venues and a lot of flourishing acts, it's always been good to us and it's fun and diverse. The Skyline is the secret place where the musicians hang. When we were just getting the music going we would pop in there and play a couple songs to street test them.
What would be your dream venue to perform? Why?
A dream venue would be at the peak of Mount Everest, I suppose if one could conquer all peaks then you've 'made it', and we've heard the reverb is great. For a more terrestrial venue we would say Massey Hall, or Red Rocks......Massey Hall is the legendary venue in Canada, all the best shows have happened there, it sounds amazing, and has a irrefutable vibe. Red Rocks is self explanatory you get to vibrate your music off ancient history.
What’s your writing process like?
Our process is usually the 2 of us holed up in the studio chasing around the 'muse' or whatever you'd like to call it. Sometimes we have a vague idea of a song and sometimes the song has a vague idea of us, we just sit down and go until we find something we like. We try not to intrude with our personalities too much and let the idea form itself.
Tell us more about “Gaslight”. What do you want the listeners to take away from this track?
Gaslight was a very fun song to chase down. The main groove & riff was discovered while writing a bridge for a different song. It didn't take us long to realize that what we were playing could be more than a bridge, and thus it became Gaslight. Gaslight comes from the heart(s) and we are kind of delivering a message that isn't always the easiest to look at. It's kind of like an Ikaros trying to bring you back from the same ol traps we all set ourselves up with. We'd love people to feel good when listening to this song, and to just take a break and have a listen, it goes along with the summer vibe.
