"What is coming up for you guys musically?
We’re writing. I was just listening to something Patrick had written in the trailer. So we’re writing, finishing out the album cycle in South Africa in September and then I feel like the great thing about what internet culture has morphed into, we were goofing around with this weird French producer the other day just for the heck of it. And I feel like you can just put out whatever and as long as it’s authentic to who you are. It can be singles or an EP, it’s just whatever you want.
When you have a following as you guys do as well is it liberating because albums aren’t the main money makers anymore, they are more for fun?
It’s about curation now, so it’s about curating a vibe. So it’s like, “Oh, here’s an EP that’s this thing.” We were able to do 12 videos that’s one narrative, I don’t feel like five years ago we could’ve pitched that to anybody. But now I think there’s room for different kinds of ideas to come around in every way except for maybe like, “Let’s put out a really long album.”
