Los Angeles based artist Delacey dropped her debut single entitled ‘My Man’ via HITCO.

 

‘My Man’ is a slow-burning track that exemplifies Delacey’s lyrical rawness as her ethereal, yet soulful vocals express both toughness and vulnerability.

 

“I really like the balance in this song, how I’m being my feisty Italian self but also building up this other woman by talking about how dope she is,” Delacey says, “I’m really just an endless bank of crazy things I’ve gone through, and I feel like I’ve worked so many emotional rollercoasters into my music. I hope that helps people to connect in a really honest way—and I hope that it makes them a little uncomfortable sometimes too.”

 

Written by Delacey and produced by Ido Zmishlany, ‘My Man’ is the first single from Delacey’s forthcoming debut EP expected later this spring.

 

From Orange County, Delacey wrote songs and played piano at age seven while idolizing the likes of Stevie Nicks and Billie Holiday.

 

Over the months, Delacey has built up her own narrative voice that is both self-aware and poetic, instilling each track with the melodic ingenuity she’s shown in co-writing songs like Halsey’s ‘Without Me’, which topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart, and songs for Demi Lovato, Zara Larsson, The Chainsmokers, and more.

 

More!

Jessie Hill (Halsey, Dean Lewis, Broods) directed the video of ‘My Man.’

 

Delacey has also announced her first set of live shows to take place next month in Los Angeles and New York City.

 

On May 16th, she will play LA’s The Peppermint Club in West Hollywood and then on May 22nd, she will play NYC’s Mercury Lounge in the Lower East Side.

 

These two shows are the first of many more live performances to come from her.

 

This summer, she will also take the stage at several major festivals like Bonnaroo, Outside Lands, and Austin City Limits.

 

The single’s reception has made her an artist to watch after the release in March.

 

Following the release, Idolator declared, “My Man stands out thanks to Delacey’s velvety vocals, lyrical prowess and less-is-more approach to production,” and Billboard stated, “Her poise amid the conflict exhibits a maturity and self-awareness beyond her 26 years as she deftly captures the competing vigilance and insecurities of a shaky relationship.”

 

Buzz Feed featured Delacey and My Man, in their roundup of  “19 Songs From Up-And-Coming Artists Released In March [They] Refuse To Let You Sleep On,” proclaiming, “this bluesy single is just the start from her.”

 

Featured as Annie Mac’s “Hottest Record in the World” on BBC Radio 1, “My Man” has already racked up over 1.7million streams, with 1 million streams on Spotify.

 

16 New Music Friday playlists worldwide, and Indie Pop and All-New Indie playlists featured “My Man.”

 

Apple Music’s Best of the Week and Breaking Pop playlists also featured “My Man.”

 

The single is receiving early airplay from an eclectic mix of leading stations like KCRW (LA), Sirius XM’s Alt Nation and KIISFM (LA).

.

.

Tell us what your fans are saying about your music.

Most of the feedback I get from fans is that my music helps them feel good and brightens their day.

.

.

.

Tell us the factors you consider in choosing a song as your favourite.

Choosing a favourite song often times depends on the genre and the song, but usually, when a song has the right balance of space between the vocals and the production and the two are playing off of each other in an original way, I dig it!

.

.

.

Tell us the names of producers you will collaborate with if you have the chance.

If I had the chance, my dream would be to collaborate with Diplo. The way his music highlights the vocals while also being intricate and different in the production is exactly what I love.

.

.

.

 

Tell us the names of the songwriters you will collaborate with if you have the chance.

Too many to count! I think in general I really love female writers. If I could go back in time, I would have loved to work with Carole King or Stevie Nicks.

.

.

.

 

Tell us your favourite TV show and state your reason.

The Office – It’s hilarious and never gets old!

.

.

.

Tell us your best mood to create a song.

It depends on the song. Usually, if I’m in a good mood, I want to write something fun and pop-driven. On days when I feel particularly moody, I write at the piano and try to channel my feelings into a ballad.

.

.

.

 

Tell us your interpretation of fame or success.

I think fame in the entertainment industry is the by-product of successfully finding your core audience and connecting with people through your art.

.

.

.

Tell us the names of artists you will collaborate with if you have the chance.

If I had the opportunity to work with Cautious Clay, I would love that. I’m obsessed with his music at the moment. I also really like Tove Lo, Billie Eilish, and Kim Petras.

.

.

.

Tell us about your experience performing on stage for the first time or recording in the studio for the first time.

The first time I recorded in a professional studio, I was 15 years old and traveled to Chicago from Virginia to finally record some of the songs I had been writing with a producer my dad knew of.  I remember feeling so excited and loved every second of it.

.

.

.

 

Tell us how you approach songwriting.

I usually start on the piano with Logic, recording software, open on the computer.

 

I’ll write out some ideas, melody, and lyrics, over the chords I’m working with and create a beat around that.

 

I don’t force things; I let it flow and would rather see what happens than going for a specific idea when first starting.

 

Sometimes I’ll have melodies that I’ll start with. It depends on the song and each song comes together differently!

.

.

.

Tell us your opinion on blending genres or experimenting with sound.

I think the more freedom you allow yourself as a writer or producer, the more original your music will sound. When smartly blended in, anything can work!

.

.

.

 

Tell us how you deal with rejection.

I used to get down about it, as most beginning artists do, but over a few years I’ve developed a thicker skin and I know that for every “no” there’s a “yes” on the way and it will be the right thing for me!

.

.

.

 

Elaborate on what compels you to sing.

I think it is so natural to sing like a human, we want to create music within ourselves, even on a micro level.

 

Singing has a similar effect on the body as exercise and meditation.

 

It opens up our lungs, increases blood flow, and creates endorphins naturally. It’s no wonder so many people love to sing.

 

For me, I’ve always had the impulse to sing for as long as I’ve been alive. It’s a part of who I am and keeps me happy.

.

.

.

Tell us the comparison between digital recording and analog recording.

While digital recordings are a copy of analog in the form of samples, analog can also give a more authentic sound as it’s coming straight from the source.

 

It all depends on your sound preference and what you are going for on the particular track you are producing.

.

.

.

 

Tell us how you record your vocals.

I set up a vocal booth in my home or rent a studio nearby, depending on the song. My favourite microphone is the Telefunken, however, I recently got a Manley for home recordings and really like it.

 

I edit vocals afterward on Pro Tools, and my husband engineers when I am recording vocals, as well as mixes the final product.

.

.

.

 

Tell us the software you used mostly for recording.

I use Logic and Ableton while mixing and editing vocals is mostly on Pro Tools.

.

.

.

Discuss the selling of CDs and selling of digital files through digital stores.

While I plan to sell merchandise at shows for the EP release, I feel that the industry has moved away from CD sales and is more streaming based, giving room for new originality when it comes to merchandise and products that we create outside of music.

 

The music will always come first and finding a great online distributor and using streaming platforms is the best way to reach a wide audience.

.

.

.

 

Elaborate on the song.

I wrote this song as a means of pushing back against the sometimes boxed in perspective on female artists in the music industry.

 

We write, produce, run companies, it’s not just about being a singer or a face.

 

It’s important to showcase a stronger narrative, as much as possible, as the industry moves forward.

.

.

.

 

Elaborate on your artist name and the title of the album.

My artist name is my first name. The EP title is ‘Monarch’, named after monarch butterflies and the transformation they symbolize, this collection of songs is about becoming who you are meant to be and going for the things you want out of life.

Already a keen student of music, and a huge fan of hip hop, he was 16 when he first created mixtapes and tried his hand at DJing.

He is a co-writer of the song “Shallow,” recorded by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper for the movie A Star Is Born, for which he earned an Academy Award for “Best Original Song,” a Golden Globe Award for “Best Song Written for a Motion Picture,” a Grammy Award for “Best Song Written for Visual Media,” and a Grammy nomination for “Song of the Year.”

Feritta grew up in a family where education and family duty came first but her passion has always been creating in one form or another.

 

While most of today’s stars have parents pushing them into the limelight it was quite the opposite for this shy, Indian girl growing up in Australia and trying to find her way between two very different cultures.

 

While in primary school Feritta was encouraged by her teachers to sing in the school’s choir programs and at 11 she was awarded a scholarship to study the clarinet, which she did for two years but gave it up when she began high school which was a tough place for a girl who didn’t quite fit in.

 

The isolation gave Feritta a lot of time to think and music became a natural outlet, allowing her to escape to a place where she could express her emotions.

 

Whenever she has some spare time she was scribbling lyrics and fantasizing about the life of a being a successful performing artist – so much that she stated in her year 12 graduation yearbook that her dream was “to be a successful recording artist.”

 

While completing a double degree, Feritta returned to music and began vocal training under the guidance of local music teacher Lucy D’Olimpio.

 

D’Olimpio was an instrumental force, pushing her to come out of her shell and explore her musical talent.

 

She then went on to perform in a few local bands but Feritta quickly discovered how fickle the music industry can be and after a few false starts and pressure to quit, Feritta began working with UK writers Dean Hopkins and Brian Highet.

 

Together, their tracks “Be What U Wanna Be” was a song finalist in a national competition and their other track “Boyfriend” went to straight to #1 on the Australian mp3.com.au music charts.

 

Soon after this Feritta was presented the opportunity to not just sing but to write and produce alongside Hopkins and together, their first collaboration, “Don’t Tell Me That You’re Sorry” jumped to #2 on the mp3.com.au charts and remained in the R&B top 20 for over a year!

 

Together, Hopkins and Feritta, along with talented engineer and producer James Hewgill, created her debut album, ‘A Journey Begins’.  The album enjoyed immense success on the independent scene.   Several of her tracks from the album jumped into the Top 10, with several number-one hits in the USA Broadjam.com Top Ten Charts.

 

Her most recent success has been with… Who’s Got Talent Italy finalist Stef Talia with their smash hit “Set Myself Free” that peaked at #4 on the prestigious European Independent Charts and she is currently in the process of writing several new tracks with exciting new producers from Australia, London, and the USA.

 

Feritta’s talents have been recognized consistently as Best Female Solo Artist Australia in the International Music Aid Awards twice, receiving two West Australian based WAMi nominations, The Recognition for Excellence Award for her musical contributions to the Zoroastrian community – these are just a few of her accolades.

 

She has opened for international artists and sold out shows alongside Bollywood superstars Sonu Niggam and triple platinum award-winning artist Pankaj Udhas, International producer and popular UK DJ and actor Bally Sagoo and also recorded with famous trance producer Ronski Speed.

 

Apart from her musical accomplishments, her entrepreneurial skills have seen her launch not one but two websites, Goddess by Feritta, an e-commerce site committed to holistic yet luxury home and beauty products and her award-winning food blog aptly titled Eat In Style by Feritta.  Feritta is also committed to sharing her other passions for health, beauty and food on her YouTube Channels, Goddess by Feritta and Eat In Style by Feritta and of course her music too.

 

There seems to be no stopping for this multi-talented artist, foodie, blogger, businesswoman, and entrepreneur.

.

.

.

 

Tell us how you write a song from the start to finish. 

It really depends; I think most artists would say true creativity is organic.

 

Sometimes I can be walking my dog and I will be hit with a great idea, other times I can hear a piece of music and it speaks to me and I want to write to it.

 

Other times I can be reading or watching something and an idea just resonates.

 

Writing music is like riding a wave, you just have to go with the flow.

 

A producer I used to work with used to tell me “Don’t force it, give it time”, I think that is great advice.

.

.

.

 

Elaborate on the gain and loss of being a musician.

It depends on your personal circumstances, for me I faced a lot of resistance to wanting to pursue music.

 

It can be very challenging and lonely in a way when people can’t relate to your dreams and many people will think you are wasting your life on an unrealistic dream but that is because they don’t understand how freeing the creative process can be and how much joy it can bring.

 

While illegal downloading has made it hard for artists to earn through digital sales, the internet itself has opened up avenues through YouTube and other streaming services; where people from all over the world now have access to anyone, anywhere and that is a really cool thing.

.

.

.

 

Tell us how you connect people with your music.

I just want to be authentic and be who I am and share a part of myself through music.  In an age where there is so much fakery, being authentic is the best way to connect with others.

.

.

.

 

Tell us your greatest song to date.

All my songs are fabulous!  My most recent track ‘Set Myself Free’ is probably the track I am most proud of to date.  I wrote that song when I needed to tell myself a new story.  I was going through some hard times and felt that I needed to remind myself of who I was and what I am capable of.

 

Set Myself Free is all about empowering yourself and owning your truth.  It’s a really catchy track (produced by Who’s Got Talent Italy finalist Stef Talia) but it also is a message to trust yourself no matter what.

.

.

.

 

Tell us what you hate most about the music business.

I think it is sad that today’s music isn’t about music at all, it is all about creating this “usually fake” image of what one thinks an artist should be so staying true to your message and purpose can be hard because someone will say, this isn’t commercial enough or you don’t have the right look or whatever it might be –  the music industry today is not necessarily about creating meaningful music, they are more interested in creating a “5 minute hit” and for some strange reason music seems to be more about shock value and less about music.

 

I think the integrity of the lyrics and the messages being played on the radio today could be a lot better.  When you think back to the greatest artists of all time, Elvis Presley, The Bee Gees, Dean Martin, Michael Jackson, Nat King Cole or Tina Turner to name just a few – they all delivered great music without selling their musical integrity – it would be great to see the music industry come back to music with meaning and not just music to meet sales targets.

.

.

.

Discuss how you monitor your digital distribution and streaming.

I have my music set up through TuneCore, they take care of all that for me. 😉

.

.

.

 

State the obstacles that a new artist can face as a starter.

Artists have to find a balance between learning from constructive feedback and being true to their musical integrity.

 

Today we live in an instant gratification kind of world and real music isn’t created like that, it has been cultivated and felt on an emotional level – all the truly greatest songs are.

 

Give yourself time and don’t believe the hype about overnight success, it is very rare.

 

Music is subjective so keep learning and growing from other talented artists but don’t give up because you get knocked down a few, heck, maybe a hundred or even a thousand times.

 

Yes, some people are truly lucky but for most, you have to remember they worked hard to get there so it is really about the journey, not the destination.

 

As soon as it becomes work, you have lost your way – so enjoy and don’t force the process.

.

.

.

 

Tell us how you would tutor a new artist in the music business.

I would tell them to immediately set up their social media accounts and again, this stems from today’s culture being one of instant gratification.

 

My manager is always telling me to create new content but I am so busy and have a million things to do every day but you know what, he is totally right.  Also, be genuine and comfortable with who you are.

 

There are certain people in the industry who may try to make you feel insecure about your looks, or encourage you to do things against your moral values, belittle your talent but remember that their opinion of you isn’t your opinion of yourself, it is how they try to control you – don’t buy into it – you really need to be mentally strong to cope because not everyone out there is a nice person.

.

.

.

 

Explain how you record songs.

I do basic vocal demos on my Pro Tools system at home but I usually go to a professional studio if a track is going to be recorded for a release.

 

It’s also nice to go and record in a studio because I really value the input from the engineer, a good one will never just let you lay down crap vocals and charge you money, he will suggest a better way to sing a line, or tell you if you are pitchy, or sing a certain line a certain way and their knowledge and guidance can really help sculpt a great vocal.

.

.

.

 

Tell us your opinion on adding effects to vocals.

I think adding effects to vocals can be amazing when used properly…the overall sound of a track can be greatly enhanced with the right vocal effects.

.

.

.

Tell us if you would consider singing about politics or injustice rather than love stories. 

I think the biggest injustice in the world today is that we do not take the time to nurture ourselves.

 

We live in a world where we care much more about what the outer world thinks of us which I think is such a sad and meaningless way to live.  That is why I wrote Set Myself Free.

 

We all do it, to please our family, friends – even people we don’t even know.

 

As I have matured, I have realized that my value is not the result of what others think of me if I am striving to be my best.

 

Yes, of course, I will still write about love, it is the most beautiful emotion in the world but love can be expressed in many different ways – through hope, empowerment, and inner-strength.

 

I think if there was more encouraging music in the world, the world would be in a much better state.

.

.

.

 

Discuss how you distribute your music

Tunecore is my main channel for music distribution and of course, YouTube is also a great vehicle for getting music out to your audience!

.

.

.

 

Tell us more about your hit single.

For me, ‘Set Myself Free’ was a form of therapy and healing.  I grew up with a lot of negative energy and negative self-talk which I carried into my adulthood and I became very sick and was diagnosed with a very serious condition.

 

At first, I thought “why me” but then I began reading a lot about the mind-body connection and I realized I had become the result of my own negative feelings and that the only person who was holding my happiness and healing back was me.

 

So my lyrics might be taken literally but are actually metaphorical, like in the chorus when I sing “I’ll put on my crown, before me you’ll bow” – the “crown” is all about taking charge, being a leader, and creating a new ideal of oneself – owning who you are while “before me you’ll bow” is about surrendering your fears and realizing that once you let go of your fears nothing can stop you.

 

Music has an incredible power to put you into a good or bad emotional space very quickly so I want to create music that makes people feel and live their best life because I truly understand how important it is.

Monsterboy found success before finding a name, as a series of coincidences landed the couple at Bonnaroo and in front of a representative for MTV.com.

 

Combining traditional alternative rock band instruments with tribal drums, woodwinds, and EDM beats the sound is new yet familiar.

 

Each song’s lyrics are crafted to capture a snapshot moment in time of the couple’s love story.

 

Monsterboy is currently releasing a new song every three weeks for a year, to embrace how every song should have its own space.

 

The songs are released in groups of three representing the event that inspired the music.

 

The Nashville Sessions came from our trips to the Music Capital of the World when the project was yet unnamed.

 

The ATX Sessions embrace the “Keep it Weird” mantra that is quintessential to Austin and SXSW.

 

We are currently releasing the songs on the Roo Sessions.

.

.

.

 

Tell us how to refine a demo to a mastered song.

We often revisit a song a few times before we feel happy with it. My Heart, for instance, was started as a demo about two years before the final recordings were made.

 

It just takes a lot of constructive criticism and self-criticism, as well as the ability to step away from your original concept to see how it can be improved.

.

.

.

 

Discuss the processing involved in creating a song.

There’s no one way that we approach creating a song. Sometimes it begins with a lyrical idea, a sax riff, a beat, and sometimes it starts with a guitar/vocal goofing around.

 

My favourite is when I hear the complete song in my head all at once, ready to go.

.

.

.

 

Elaborate on the themes of most of your songs.

Our songs most often represent moments in time that we have shared or witnessed together over the years. Themes of love, loss, triumph, and relationships of all kinds make their appearances amongst our songs.

.

.

.

 

Tell us your greatest musical works up to date.

The overall favourite so far has to be My Heart, but the technical expertise that has gone into songs like Paper Cup, We’re Just the Same, and Dead to Rights makes them personal favourites in our repertoire.

.

.

.

 

Describe your music process.

We like to play with a song back and forth until it feels right to us.

.

.

.

 

Tell us how you are handling the promotion of your music.

We are currently using a Dirk Gently method, chasing down leads and opportunities as they cross our path. We are a big fan of hard copy flyers and handbills. In a digital age, it can be a way to stand out.

.

.

.

 

Tell us your future goals and how you aim to accomplish.

Our future goals include reaching new audiences and building relationships with them.

 

Two key components will be filming lots of video content and building a network of people passionate about what we are doing — from tastemakers to diehard fans that share our music with their friends.

 

Regional touring is being lined up this year, and national is on the horizon.

 

There is a delicate balance between using shows to find new audiences and creating demand in a region for your music.

.

.

.

 

Tell us what you think has changed in the music industry.

A lot has changed in the music industry over the past decade and a half, and it keeps you on your toes!

 

The rise and fall of Myspace, mp3.com and other music-centric websites resulted in the loss of fan outreach.

 

The rise of Bandcamp, Kickstarter, and other crowdfunding based sites allowed for much greater control in the music industry…

 

It’s amazing to watch how the industry evolves to keep up with the changing landscape of technology.

.

.

.

 

Tell the greatest mistake to avoid while making a song.

I would say getting attached to the original structure of the song and not realizing that breaking it all back apart and reassembling it is going to serve the song best.

 

Sometimes even building a whole new song around just a piece of a dysfunctional work in progress is the best course of action.

.

.

.

 

Tell us how to boost performance.

Drink two 5 hour energy drinks! – No don’t do that; it’s bad for your health.

 

Honestly, we create best when we have new experiences and balance in our lives.

 

Going to festivals or new cities and adventure always provides new energy while eating well, working out, and snuggles help, as we create best when we are happy.

.

.

.

 

Explain the structure of the song.

The arrangement of this song is just what felt natural while it was being written.

 

Although the drums and instruments, as well as the rhythms, changed throughout the writing process, the structure was always there…Intro, verse 1, chorus, bridge, verse 2, double chorus and outro.

.

.

.

 

Discuss how the instruments come together for a song.

It all started with the drums in My Heart. When things started to really take shape, however, is when we brought in the synth line and combined it with the saxophone playing a fifth above it. The disco-inspired guitar licks just made sense with the upbeat dancey feel, but the content of the lyrics themselves called for a melancholy sound in the vocals that just adds to the overall unique tone of the song.

.

.

.

 

State your musical skills.

Chris has played music since the age of six, starting with the violin, and going on to play the French horn, guitar, bass, keyboards, as well as becoming proficient with programming electronica and hip hop inspired drum lines.

 

Veronica fell in love with the bari sax as a very young child however did not have one of her own until she was 14. She has played other woodwinds, as well as the occasional synth.

.

.

.

 

Tell if you consider acting in a movie.

Oh, that’d be fun! Really, I’d rather perform as a voice actor, though…

.

.

.

 

Tell us how you eliminate noise in your recordings.

As we have a home studio, this can be trying with outside noise, and sometimes it’s just taking a break while the neighbour mows their lawn.

 

We have invested in isolation shields for microphones and pop filters, and software in DAWs are great, but we prefer to start with as clean of a signal as possible.

.

.

.

 

List the name of artists you cherish most.

Beck is one of our all-time favourite artists, and we would love to work with him in any capacity. Madonna has been an inspiration with how she has been able to adapt over the years. And a slew of video game composers shaped Chris’s songwriting to include elements from classical music theory.

.

.

.

 

Tell us how you get inspiration.

Inspiration is found everywhere. We find it in moments in our lives and others, as well as in the art that inspires us to create.

.

.

.

 

Elaborate on the song.

This song is pretty plainly about that moment where you decide you’re done trying to retain a relationship with someone. This isn’t alluding to any particular moment, but more written around dealing with this situation many times over one’s life.

.

.

.

Elaborate on your artist name and the title of the album.

Monsterboy is a name that comes from many places, including Chris’ love for giant monster movies as a kid, as well as the dichotomy between the inner child and the shadow of one’s persona.

 

‘My Heart’ appears in our collection of songs titled ‘The Nashville Sessions’ and was inspired by the acceptance we felt as artists in the Nashville music scene.

.

.

.

 

Share your press release and review with us.

We are a husband and wife, indie pop duo, based in Little Rock, Arkansas. I play bari saxophone and Chris Long, my husband composes and plays guitar and vocals.

 

We have a collection of stories from this crazy fun ride that has led us to where we are now in music – Finding ourselves in such strange places including one with a Grammy being used as a paperweight.

 

This ‘Nashville Sessions’ is our first collection of songs, written around our visits to network in the magical town. Anything can happen in Nashville; we met amazing talent every night, venues around every corner.  We noticed that not just artists, but also audiences thrive on original great music. It was inspiring, to say the least, these three songs are about how Nashville changed us.

 

The first song My Heart, released on Sept 20th, 2018, kicked off our pledge to release a new song every 3 weeks for a year.

 

Our current collection of songs being released is the Roo Sessions and it reflects our experiences at Bonnaroo, where Monsterboy started.

Zen Parks began as a solo concept in 2016 by singer/songwriter Mateo Guidali.

 

A year later, Rafael Aritmendi would join the project including drums and percussion instruments to the mix.

 

Matt and Rafa met in high school where they started sharing their eclectic music taste.

 

Matt is an avid fan of the 60’s and 70’s music but he also started to find a taste for modern bands like Glass Animals, Jungle, Alt-J, Tame Impala, etc…

 

Rafa grew up listening to rock and metal music and is also a founder member of the metal band Deathsurrection and a drummer for Avulsed.

 

Together they found a way to mix different styles and they usually don’t like to define their music by a specific genre.

 

They published a self-financed E.P. called Mysteries of Venus in 2017 and just released their crowdfunded second E.P. called Times of Sorrow.

 

Their biggest strength is that they like to experiment with different sounds and genres without diverging too much from an overall pop feel.

.

.

.

 

Interview with Matt:

 

Discuss your recording experience with your producer.

Our recording experience didn’t last more than a week. We knew what we wanted from the get-go and we were working with our usual producer Brais Ruibal (Reno Studios, Madrid) who also worked on our first E.P.

.

.

.

 

Discuss what comes first and last while creating a song.

For this E.P. it all started with the chorus. When I thought of a catchy rhythm I would contact with Rafa so we could start building together with the overall feel of the song and later on add the last twitches from home.

.

.

.

 

Tell us the piece of advice you will give to a new artist.

Be ready to get a lot of rejections. Not everybody has the same taste and some critics are ruthless with their rejections but believe in what you do and don’t give up. In the end, you’re creating music because you love doing it. Never forget that.

.

.

.

 

Discuss your worse experience in the music business.

As independent artists, we don’t have a really bad experience. We may differ from some aspects of the music business nowadays but you also have to learn how to adapt to modern times.

.

.

.

 

Tell us how you deal with rejection.

The first rejections are the hardest to read. They make you rethink why you did what you did, but after a while, you start to see a pattern between the good and the bad. It’s normal. That’s how the world works.

.

.

.

 

Tell us what you are doing to impact the people around you.

In this digital era, we think people feel more alone than ever. It’s weird. We live in a hyper-connected world but we’re less in touch in a personal level. We like to be honest with our lyrics and try to connect with our listeners.

.

.

.

 

Tell us the music that makes you happy.

We have very different taste in music but I guess we really enjoy anything with a good groove.

.

.

.

Tell us how you make instrumentation to your song.

It all starts with simple chords to follow up the chorus’ lyrics. After that, we usually implement the drums and percussion, and lastly, we start embellishing the song with small synth details and guitar riffs.

.

.

.

Tell us how you feel when you sing and your fans sing along to your song.

It’s the best feeling in the world. It makes you feel like it is all worth it.

.

.

.

 

Tell us the goals you aim to achieve when creating a song.

The goal is to make something you like. Then you hope someone likes what you like and creates a connection with it.

.

.

.

 

Discuss your approach to writing.

I guess we use music as some kind of psychotherapist – A way to exteriorize our fears and anxieties.

.

.

.

 

Tell us how you plan to develop a unique music style.

We just try to mix stuff up. We come from different musical backgrounds but we like to experiment. Our sound ends up with a pop backbone but the polished details come from different styles and genres.

.

.

.

 

Tell us how to record a song. 

Just write and write. Good songs will come up but also bad ones. You just got to keep the creative flow running and write about anything that comes into your mind. Then it’s just about putting the pieces together.

.

.

.

Tell us if you are collaborating with other songwriters or you write alone.

For now, it’s just us. We’d love to feature someone at some point but we’re going step by step for now.

.

.

.

 

Discuss your experience with fans.

We’re a small band. The fans in our home country are basically our friends and family but we’d love to go abroad and meet our fans overseas.

.

.

.

 

Discuss your experience with booking gigs and shows.

For now, we’ve only done a couple of small gigs in Madrid.

.

.

.

 

Tell us if you consider a song placement in TV or Film.

We’d love that.

.

.

.

 

Elaborate on the song.

IDK may sound like a confusing romance but the lyrics actually point out to internal dialogue and the understanding with one’s ego.

.

.

.

 

Elaborate on your artist name and the title of the album.

The name Zen Parks came when I was living in Barcelona where I used to go meditate and relax…
