INTRO BY KAT VISTI
INTERVIEW BY CAMI LIBERTY
Alternative pop band Aeves recently released their EP entitled 'Desire'. The band also released a music video for the track 'Wild Hearts'. The EP mixes together elements of pop/electronic and punk rock. We sat down for an interview with Aeves to learn more about how they became a band, their music, and what the future holds for them as a band.
How did you guys first come together to form the band?
Molly: "Well, we met in middle school. We’ve been friends since then. All of our other projects went kaput, and so thus (Powerpuff Girls narrator voice) Aeves was born! Combining their ultra super powers, Molly and Matthew, dedicated their lives to playing music and fighting the forces of negativity!"
How would you describe your music in three words?
Molly: "Dreamy, Emotional, Clouds."
On February 19th you released your new EP, Desire. Can you tell us a little about the EP and the process of creating it?
Molly: "Well, we went out to California to record it with our friend Marc, and it was a fun process. We had a few different songs to choose from, but we narrowed it down to the three. I had a lot of fun writing, and recording it, and I hope y’all enjoy listening to it as much as we enjoyed making it."
Where do you find most inspiration when creating music?
Molly: "Depends on where it’s coming from. Sometimes I sit down and just have a stream of consciousness recording session. Other times other songs inspire me. Other times it’s a movie, a show, a book, current events, or my muse. It truly just depends."
You also released a music video for your song Wild Hearts on February 26th. Can you tell us a little about the video and how the concept came about?
Molly: "Well, we knew we had an idea in mind. We met up with Arielle for coffee, and we talked, and we all got on very well. So, we kind of all agreed on what direction to go in, and it was a pretty easy process, because we all had the same vision. Very sick."
Is there anything else we can expect from you in the near future? Any upcoming shows?
Molly: "More music, videos, and yes, shows. We’ve got some in the works right now."
