PhaseOne

Where are you currently based? I’ve been residing in LA for the past almost 4 years touring the American circuit. What's been happening recently and how has your Covid experience been so far? 2020 was pretty uneventful as it was for most musicians,  but currently I’m in Australia and very lucky to be doing some covid free shows! How did you first start playing music? I’ve played guitar & piano since I was a child, played in many different bands throughout my teens before discovering EDM. Your new single 'Enemy' is out now, what influenced the sound and songwriting & How did you go about writing Enemy with Shane Told of Silverstein who features on the track, how did this come about and how was the experience? I’ve been doing the whole rock/metal EDM crossover thing for a while now (usually on the more heavier side) but since the lack of shows over the current year, I’ve been exploring the more melodic side of things. I originally wrote enemy using a Silverstein Acapella as a place holder and it worked too perfectly, so then I hit up Shane to see if he’d be down to write some original vocals for the tune and he was super into the idea and so easy to work with! Where and when did you record/produce/master and who with? I do everything myself from my home studio & Shane recorded his vocals in his home studio. Enemy mashes up EDM with Heavy sounds, how did this mash come to be? That’s the PhaseOne sound. Once I discovered EDM I was still very much into writing metal too, so figured why not combine them both haha. What programs/equipment did you use? I use ableton. For synths on this song I used the VST Serum & a guitar simulator synth called Heavier7strings. What do you like to do away from music? I like music that catches me off guard, I love obscure time signatures and frequent changes. Nerdy music basically haha, but I also thrive on the energy that heavy music brings. Who are you listening to at the moment? Northlane. Periphery. Polyphia. Fat Freddys Drop. What's planned for 2021? At the moment just taking advantage of some actual shows out here in Aus. Music wise, I plan on releasing a lot more melodic music and another EP at some point in the coming months.
