Welcome to BuzzMusic Como Brothers! How did you two begin making music together?
We started out playing in cover bands in high school. We were in a Beatles tribute band with our dad and uncle at one point. Learning a lot of The Beatles music is what gave us an appreciation for songwriting. It made us want to write and perform our own songs. We've been writing, recording, and performing our songs ever since.
What’s your writing process like as a duo?
It really depends on the song. Sometimes we'll write a song totally together, and other times we'll start/finish an idea on our own.
What does the track “Money” mean to you? What inspired it?
"Money" is about wanting money so that you don't have financial worries. It's not about wanting money for the sake of money. Everybody wonders what it would feel like to win the lotto and not have a single financial concern - this song is a wish to experience that feeling. The song is also a lament that we currently do have to think about money and have to constantly figure out how to pay bills.
What do you hope your listeners take away from it?
I hope our listeners can relate to the feeling and dance to it. We also want our listeners to know that we don't really care about money itself. Loved ones and time are the two most important things in life; we just want money so that we can have more of that. We can care less about material things.
From an artist’s perspective, what is your favorite lyric in “Money”?
"They say that we living free, but I get charged every time I breath" is my favorite line! You really do get charged at every step that you take in life! Even the air at the gas station costs money.
