Tell us about your music career, your band name, musical background, experience and skills.

We are a totally independent group that have been releasing music year after year building a great fan base mainly in the UK and Europe but dabbling in the U.S. market from time to time. We’ve had our music videos played on MTV and performed for thousands of people throughout the UK and EUROPE and are known for our high energy shows and catchy Chorus Melodies!

Tell us about your genre, concept and idea behind your music video and the song.

Our genre is an eclectic mix of pop,rap, and various dance genres, This song is all of that with a sprinkle of tropical house on top. The concept of the song is about how Love can be simple to fall into but Complicated to navigate through and is expressing the thoughts that we all seem to have going through these situations/relationships in life.

Tell us everything that we need to know about you as a musician and the ups and downs you have faced in the music business.

Well as most artists/songwriters know there’s nothing better feeling than being able to write and perform music for people all around the world and even tho we are still an up and coming band we have been able to do that for the past 9 years. I guess you could class that at the overarching Up of our carer so far! The down and constant adversary to that is, even though we’ve come so far we would always like our music to reach more people and build the fan base bigger then it currently is.

Tell us about other members of your band, music producer, crew or music video director, how the song was recorded and how the music video was shot.

We run a pretty small crew with most of our releases. This project involved only 3 People Ryan & Josh (i.e. Twelve24) and a UK based producer called Geek Boy (Al Swetenham).

Tell us how long you have been in the music industry, your experience and your future goal.

We have been working on music and performing for the past 10 years and have had a great experience sharpening our craft.

Tell us what inspires you to write, compose and sing.

We love music so much, so many different types of genres and sounds, this always helps the process. We love to hear peoples’ stories too and we like to talk about that in the music. Our faith in Jesus is also a huge inspiration for us too.

Tell us the secret behind making a hit song.

HAHA we wish we could tell you! I think you just got to make the best music you feel you can make and say something that is personal and real to you and people will like it.

.

.

.

 

Tell us the message you will like to pass to your fans out there.

YOU’RE AMAZING! Our fans WLDKDZ (Wild Kids) are the best out there. We love you! This song was made to tell you that hey life is complicated but i can be simple too, so don’t worry you’re not alone, we all find love simply complicated.

Tell the kind of advice you will give to an upcoming artist.

Be true to who you are. Don’t try and find your sound, just do what you like and what comes most natural to you. Keep chasing your dreams and don’t let anyone stop you!

Elaborate on your music careers, albums, songs, tours, recognition or awards you might have obtained. 

We have been doing this for a long 10 years!!! We have released tonnes of singles, 2 albums and and EP and we are working on much more. We have done a UK Tour and also done festivals and shows all over the world and we are in a different European City almost every weekend. God is good! No awards yet but maybe one day.

List Radio or TV Stations that are airing your songs and blogs that have featured you as well and send message to them via this platform. 

We have been on MTV in America before, that was super cool…hey MTV if you’re watching thanks so much…check out the new stuff.

Tell us how you write your lyrics, compose, sing and record in the studio. 

We normally start with a beat, making it with a friend. Then just write melodies…these sound strange because we have no lyrics yet…some of them are crazy funny….maybe one day we should release all our old song ideas before the lyrics people would love it. Then we just try and find lyrics from the heart that are important to us. On this song, Simply Complicated, we particularly like the lyrics “I’m so there but I’ve got no courage to say I’m nowhere” It is a line about stuff we go through sometimes and we know others do with depression and anxiety. We are saying how hard it is to tell people your problems because you know you are “so there” in the moment with people etc. but at the same time it is hard to find the strength and courage to say actually “I’m nowhere”. That’s why we say later in the song “I’m lost without love” because if we don’t have love then what do we have? Well for us that is where our faith is so huge because we believe God is love and we can find love in Him. That is where we hope to inspire you all that you are loved, you are here for a reason and your life has a purpose.
