We're head over heels for the passionate and feel-good tone of your latest single, "No Release." Where did the inspiration for this heartfelt song come from?
Someone had told us a funny story about a friend who didn't get exactly what they had imagined while chasing some romance. We were in the studio & it gave us a laugh and some fun inspiration, so we started writing.
What did you want to make the listeners feel when experiencing your single "No Release?"
100% super good, and not at all sad. Maybe a tad cheeky.
Your duo's creative process was like when formulating the instrumentals and sonics for "No Release?" How did you share and go about this process?
We usually get into the studio with a start of some sort. In this case, it was that opening riff and the subject. It started with those key pieces and grew from there.
Who wrote the passionate and uplifting lyrical content for "No Release?" Was it easy for you to find the right words to portray your emotions and love for a specific person?
The funny thing about the song is, it isn't truly a love song. We wanted to accomplish it sounding and feeling like a love song, but in reality, it's about getting what you wanted, and something still isn't right. That's why the end of the song repeats that line, "what are you gonna do now that you got me?" It's our main character having an "uh oh" moment.
What's next for you?
"Work work work work work" - Rihanna. We want to get some new music out very soon.
