Q) You both have just released a new single called ‘Party For Two’! Can you explain a bit about the inspiration behind the song and what it means to you both personally?
A) We wanted to put out a fun quarantine song that would let people dance and have fun in their own homes. Obviously no one can go out to huge parties right now, but we hope that people can still find some joy even in these times. We’ve been stuck with just each other for months and we’ve had to learn how to have fun with just the two of us. People need fun music they can dance to more than ever right now
Q) What would you say would be the best advice that has been given to you so far in your careers?
A) Someone told us once upon a time “Do everything you can yourself until someone can do it better.” This has been very helpful as we are completely self-managed and our music is self-released right now. It’s forced us to learn a lot about the industry and be able to advocate for ourselves better.
Q) What inspired you to start your journey towards your career in music? -Did you guys meet each other before the band was formed?
A) We actually met on Tinder, became a couple, and only formed a band a year after we started dating. We both were always into music, although one of us started out in pop music and the other started in musical theater. Put us together, and you get a crazy theatrical pop act like no one has ever seen before.
Q) What is your favourite song to perform live and why this specific song?
A) Our song “American Icon”, which was also our first-ever single, is probably the most fun to perform. It’s the perfect encore song, and it’s just so fun and energetic. It’s been around long enough that our fans often sing along— there’s nothing cooler than that!
Q) Has there been anything that has made it difficult for you two in the music world that you wish would change in the near future?
A) The music industry is a tough industry to be in, especially now. Obviously, the most pressing issue has been not being able to have any live shows during the pandemic, as that is our favorite thing to do, best way to connect with fans, and our biggest source of income. Our brand is also very expensive- it costs money to sound and look this fabulous, and the pandemic hasn’t been easy on our finances as well. Not to mention, as gay artists in the industry, we have to work twice as hard to be taken seriously and not just be written off as “a novelty gay act”.
