Interview: "Rome" by Arin
Q: We are in love with your song 'Rome'! Can you tell us the story behind it?
Arin: Awesome yeah I’d love to. So ‘Rome’ was actually inspired by two close friends of mine who always had a bit of history between them. They both knew there was a bit of a spark but thought it best to maintain their friendship over everything else. I decided to write about the ‘what if’ and how it would be to venture into something previously forbidden.
Q: Can you tell us what inspired you to start making music?
Arin: Ever since I started playing guitar I’ve been entranced with trying to write songs as a form of expression for myself. I love how songwriting works as an outlet for emotions as well as a fun creative process where you can delve into a story.
Q: What would you say your favorite line in 'Rome' is?
Arin: For me it’s gotta be the lyrics in the bridge when it goes “falling deeper in, gotta sink to swim so let’s learn to drown together”
Q: If you could collaborate with any artist of your choice, who would you choose and why?
Arin: I’d love to work with Jeremy Zucker to see how he goes about creating music because I really appreciate his attention to detail especially within his production
Q: What are your interests outside of music?
Arin: I really enjoy bouldering and climbing, especially in the summer when it’s hot out. And also cooking, nothing beats a lovey homemade meal after a long day.
Q: You have an EP coming out January 14th! Can you tell us what you have in store for us?
Arin: Totally! So I’m very excited for this as this EP will be my first body of work out and for me it is a journey through my own exploration of emotions I’ve encountered in relationships. There’s 6 tracks in total so I’m excited to see how everyone reacts to the project and to see their favourites!
