GETTING TO KNOW NEW AGE THRILLS
by Jacqueline Jax host of A.V.A Live Radio
Interviewing: Sophia Brenan & Jack Charles
Song name: I’ll Let You Be In My Dreams, If I Can Be In Yours
Genre: : Alternative/Indie
We wrote I’ll Let You Be In My Dreams, If I Can Be In Yours as an intro song for our EP, we wanted to to write a haunted styled song to kick the EP off. We recorded it in a small room at our university halls in London. Using different techniques with the microphones and guitars to get the sound we wanted. Lyrically the song is about how much our lives have changed since moving to London to study music, we just wrote what we were feeling at the time. Guitar wise we decided on a really raw and haunting sound that would set the tone for the EP.

Each song we have wrote for the EP has been very experimental because we’ve only been playing together since the start of the year, and from writing music together, its always based around how we are feeling as a band and in our own lives. The EP basically sums it up, and we want people to enjoy it, that’s the main thing. The EP was written in a cool way, we’d take sentences our friends have said and use them to base a song off, so the songs are personal to them, they just don’t know it yet because we haven’t told them. Expect a different range of songs, from acoustic to upbeat.
We study at London College of Music in Ealing (West London). The scene in London is incredible, there are lots of opportunities to play live, which we love doing. There are so many amazing musicians its really inspiring to us and we love meeting people at the shows we play. we are really looking forward to being able to play bigger and better gigs around London, its exciting to think about the people and opportunities that can come from the London music scene.
We think the industry is great, we are aware of how hard and demanding it can be but seeing new talent come through all the time is great see. Being in the early stages of our band it can be expensive to fund what we want to do, and we just want as many people to listen/hear our music as possible so and that can be hard to do with out certain factors helping you out. We haven’t had any really bad experiences from playing around London and we hope it stays that way. We have a lovely fella called dan who managers us, he is a diamond.
I would love to have 5 minutes alone with….
if we could, it would be with catfish and the bottlemen, or the xx, as both are massive inspirations to us and our writing. it would be amazing to have a chat with them about song writing and to see if they have any tips for our music and playing live.
