You recently released your video for “Figure It Out.” What’s the video about?
It was more for the audience and it was based that way. That’s why the song is called “Figure It Out.” We wanted it to kind of be a mystery. We’re really into space and aliens and shi*t. It’s influencing everything we’re writing in the future. At the end of the video we have this crystal and we don’t want anyone to know whether someone wants them. You don’t know if we’re being chased or if were running after someone.
How would you describe the writing process for Fixed At Zero?
It was a big transition from the first EP. We’re all pretty young and all the material we write is a stepping stone. When we wrote Perceptions that was the first time in my life I experienced writing music. Ever since then I feel like we’re more mature. We’re getting closer and closer to where we want to be. I loved the way Fixed At Zero turned out. We’ve written a lot more and a lot together. We have learned each other and can read each other’s minds. When we write it’s a really fun experience for us. When writing the songs it can be based on the feel and element or word. We constantly remind each other to put ourselves in that mood. It just made each song that much better.
Best and worst show you ever played?
Your asking a girl who has the worst memory ever. We definitely have those shows where the sound fu**ing blows. I go absolutely insane and throw myself out the window since I can’t hear myself. It really attracts the crowd and I jump over a five foot barricade gap on top of kids singing along with me. Those are the best shows to have because the energy is absolutely insane, even though I like to hear myself more.
Tell us about your UK tour.
We’ll be doing things such as Soundwave and all of these really cool festivals. We got a lot of offers to headline from promoters and to get that from another country is an awesome feeling. The presale and VIP tickets have been selling really well. The kids seem real excited to see us over there.
