Hot on the heels of the release of Title Fights new album Hyperview. I got to have a conversation on the phone with Ned Russin. I pretty much what I did in every interview, sound weird and nervous and most likely scared them. This especially happens when I actually like the artist, and I like this one. My friends in London dragged me to shows, and I was in love. Check out my interview below.
How’s the press going? Do you ever get sick of it?
This time around it’s been good. The last two albums we’ve done there was a lot of the same type of introductory question, but hopefully we’ve gotten to the point where hopefully people know us now. So we can skip all of that, this stuff I like, talking about the music and the record.
How long did it take you to record your new album?
We recorded over the course of a month. We had the month of July booked and we ended up going a little bit late, so we were in there until the very beginning of August.
That sounds like a pretty quick turnaround.
Once we sort of got our situation figure out, we could get on the way with everything but it was the longest time we’ve ever spent in the studio and I think we were definitely able to do a lot more with the pre-production process.
What can fans expect from your new album?
I mean a lot of the reactions we’re getting so far from people is that it’s drastically different, its shoegaze, that it’s minimalist, things like this and I don’t think I’d preface it with any of those descriptions. It’s definitely a little bit more spaced-out, more ethereal, (which) I think is a good word that was tossed around a little bit. But at the same time I think it retains the same energy and same emotions that we’ve always put forward and we’ve also used some of the elements from this record before, we just never elaborated to this extent. It’s not completely out of left field, I think if you have made your way through the entirety of a record of ours you will pick up on some stuff, but it is different that anything we’ve done before. It’s not going to be the same exact thing if people are expecting that but it’s not completely different either.
Do you have a favourite track?
Right now my favourite is Liar’s Love I think.
