Interview: "Standstill" - Floor 44
Q: Congrats on the release of ‘Standstill’! Can you tell us what this song is about?
Floor 44: Thank you very much! Firstly we like the idea that a song, or any piece of art, can have many different meanings. And the true meaning of the song is whatever the listener makes of it. That being said the song portrays stubborn love. But it ideally focuses on all our bad habits and how they are part of us and how we so easily let it rule our hearts in times of weakness.That concept played a major key in the whole idea of 'Standstill'. It was written to describe this certain antagonist character who makes us do things that we know are wrong.
Q: What first got you into music?
Floor 44: Hearing Bryan Adams on my dad's old boombox
Q: If you could perform anywhere in the world, where would you pick and why?
Floor 44: Rogers Centre in Toronto. We saw Coldplay play live there and since then that has been the dream.
Q: What artists would you love to collab with?
Floor 44: The one and only Jon Bon Jovi
Q: What is your favorite song of all time? You can only pick one!
Floor 44: That is a very tough one! Maybe Life on Mars? by David Bowie or Message in a bottle by The Police
Q: What are your plans for your musical journey?
Floor 44: We hope to play live more! With the COVID-19 Pandemic easing around the world we hope that that brings more opportunity to play our music live in front of a crowd. The road of a musical career is a winding one, the most you can do is learn from your experience and love what you do.
