How far along are you guys with your album?
RR: We have nine songs that we’re pretty excited about–I wouldn’t even say [they’re] close to done, but we have two that are in the final stages. We have a bunch of concepts, let’s say five concepts that are either beats or one-word phrases. I think we’re doing really well, obviously we have a lot of shows coming up so we’ll see how that plays out. We did a track with Mike Posner for the album–he wrote it, I don’t know if he’s going to be on it. He’s a great writer.
After building up such a vocal fan base through your EP, do you feel limited at all in what you can do because of what people expect from you?
CS: When we cut our first project (The Scotch Tape) there was absolutely no pressure; we were living in our parents’ houses and it was like, let’s just have fun and do this. There was a moment, though, [where we felt we needed to] give the people what they want but that evaporated pretty quickly. Now [our philosophy] has been let’s just have fun creatively and be artists and the rest will come.
Are you afraid to put the album out? What if people don’t like it?
RR: Definitely not.
CS: I would say releasing new music every week makes it easier.
RR: I don’t think we’re making music for other people to like it, but at the same time, both of us are pretty confident that they will. Obviously there are always haters and the more the merrier but I think it will be fine.
CS: The more the merrier.
