Interview: "On And On" - Night Talks
Congratulations on the release of your new incredible single “On And On”! Can you share what inspired this song and a bit about the writing process?
Night Talks: Thank you! This song was inspired by the ways in which the various relationships we experience throughout life have a lot of the same ups and downs. It could be your friends, your parents, your romantic partner-- there will always be ups and downs. At the end of the day, if we feel it's worth it, we come back to the person we're having a hard time with and work things out. This was the first song we started working on for our album "Same Time Tomorrow," but I think one of the last ones we finished. The song has been through a lot of changes to get to where it is now.
How did you all meet and start making music together?
Night Talks: We all met when we were taking music lessons on weekends at the same place. Jacob, our guitarist, sought out me and Josh to form a band, and we've all been in it together ever since.
If you could collaborate with any other artist, who would you pick and why?
Night Talks: I think it would be really cool to collaborate with a film director and composer to work on music for a movie. The band Metric had a small role as a band in the Olivier Assayas film "Clean," and they later collaborated with Howard Shore to create the score to David Cronenberg's "Cosmopolis." I hope we can do both things!
What is each of your favorite songs the band has ever made? Might be a tough one!
Night Talks: Soraya's favorite of ours so far is "Watching Waiting," Jacob's is "Searching," and Josh's is "Dancing With My Eyes Closed." All three songs are on our new album "Same Time Tomorrow."
Any advice for artists just starting out? Things you wish you could’ve told yourselves before you entered the scene?
Night Talks: Learning to be patient is a really important lesson that I think all bands need to hear. Things take a long time and it's important to stick with it. Other than that, focus on the music and on playing live-- that's the best way to get good!
Any upcoming projects you can share? I really can’t wait to hear more!!!
Night Talks: Our sophomore album, "Same Time Tomorrow," just came out in late February. Other than that, we are working on lots of new songs! We're aiming to put two out in early 2023.
