INTERVIEW: Timeflies Talks Working On Debut Album And Beyonce Conspiracy Theories

by (@emilyexton)

VH1 Tuner: You’ve built established a very dedicated following in a very short period of time. How would you describe your sound and what is it that you think your fans are looking for from your music?

Cal Shapiro: I think what the cool thing is–and I don’t mean this offensively at all–is that they don’t know what they’re looking for. We get tweets all the time like, “We don’t like dubstep, we don’t like electro, but we like Timeflies” and so I think what they’re looking forward to is what we’re coming out with.

So you’re like the musical gateway drug.
CS & Rob Resnick: Exactly.
RR: We’re tricking people into liking stuff. Gateway drug’s great. We’re going to steal that.

How would you describe your sound going forward?
RR: We have a Timeflies sound and it’s going to be a continuation of that. On the one side it’s really great that music on it’s own is going towards EDM, so we’re going to get to be a part of that and we’re going to get to push some of that sound-wise. On the other side, unlike the EP where we had six-song limit, we’re going to be able to do more of the artsy, avant-garde stuff that I think both of us are really excited to get back to. And then I think you can expect some classic Timeflies, banger, melt-your-face stuff.
