Tell us a few things about your new song “PCH”. What is the main idea behind it?
“PCH” is the song playing as you’re driving home from a long weekend at the beach – you drank one too many margaritas and fell in love with someone who lives 800 miles away. It was never your intention, but you couldn’t help yourself. Now you’re checking the rearview, thinking about all of the exciting mistakes you just made
What is the story behind your name?
We actually have another project called Tidal Babes – total bubblegum surf punk. One of the singles we released is called “Bam” and there’s a line in that song where I say, “k thanks, bye!” We liked that as a name and thought it would be a fun little Easter egg for people that are fans of both projects
What do you enjoy most? Writing music or performing your music live?
Oooh that’s tough. Each one has its own kind of magic. When we’re in the studio building a song, there will be these insane moments when all of our neurons are firing and everything comes together in a spark of clarity. There’s nothing quite like that high. Songwriting is such an intimate way to connect with a person, and it always brings us closer together. Playing live is so much fun though. We haven’t been able to play live shows with K THX BYE yet, but we’ve all played together in so many different projects over the years that we know we vibe well live. We’ve been doing so much studio work lately and have all really been enjoying that, but of course we can’t wait to play out when the time is right
What is the biggest challenge you have faced as an artist so far?
I think there’s a very communal sense amongst artists that living through a pandemic has been the biggest challenge as of yet
In which state of mind do you imagine people might listen to your music?
Our music is pretty easy to connect to, so I see it fitting in lots of situations – at some hip loft party in New York City, at a fashion show, or just in your apartment having a dance party with your besties
What is the most trouble you’ve ever gotten into?
Haha, that doesn’t seem like a safe question to answer… I like adventure, and with that can come trouble. I find myself there often and I embrace it as part of the process. I’ll spare you the details
