Future Sailors Newsletter Interview

27 Oct 2015 // An interview by Shade

 

Which one of your songs are you most proud of, and why?

We aren't really proud of any specific one, we are proud of all the songs we write. It takes a lot of time for us because it is just us two so we have to write for all the instruments not just our main one but that makes practising and band decisions a lot easier.

What is the one thing you want NZ to know about Future Sailors?

We want NZ to know that pop music isn't just for teenage girls, and that pop music isn't meaningless.

What is Future Sailors' long term goal?

We ultimately want to get our music out internationally and for people in different countries to hear us.

What sets you apart from other musicians/bands?

Well we don't have a drummer or bassist or any other musician it is just us two (Cody and Connor), it is strange when you turn up to a gig and people ask where your drummer is and you have to explain you don't have one.

Tell us about Future Sailors' next release.

Our next release is a bit different to our last, it is a bit more harsh, and aggressive.

What inspired you to start Future Sailors?

Well we have this really good friend, Cam McTaggart, who is a professional weight lifter. He always believed in us and said that if we try really hard we can record and play shows. Seeing him win all his weight lifting awards just made us see he was right. So we got together and here we are now.
