We caught up with the superb band Temperature Falls, following the release of their latest single, ‘1-2-3’. Find the interview and a link to their latest video below!
Hi both, tell us about yourselves?
We are an English/Norwegian band with multi-instrumentalist Ian J. Ward and vocalist Camilla Nilsen. Our band represents a passion for music, with cool beats and rhythms. We want to create something new, different and amazing to listen to.
What is your songwriting process?
Our songwriting process differs. Most of the time, Ian uses his passion for creating fresh music and beats, and then Camilla gets a feeling from the music to create lyrics and vocals to the tracks. Sometimes its the other way around. When you get an idea, even if it is the music or the vocals first – record!
Tell us about your latest release?
Our latest release is called ‘1-2-3’. We also have a new release coming out on the 24th of April called ‘Fly’. ‘1-2-3’ is about going back to change something to become the person you really want to be. Situations from the past have an impact on who you are today, and maybe it’s some of those situations you would like to change.
What message do you think your music conveys to your fans?
I think most of our music is about life itself. Sometimes thoughts and experiences people don’t feel safe enough to talk about. Everything should be ok to discuss, and we want to get that out to our fans.
Who are your musical influences?
Our musical influences are massive attack, sylvan Esso and the xx.
Who are your non-musical influences?
Our fans; they have belief in what we are doing. That’s so important to give you a feeling of accomplishment.
What’s the best gig that you have ever played?
Ian supported Motorhead at the RDS in Dublin – so he wins! So far we have only played small shows locally in Norway – we want to change this next year and do a lot more shows once we have focused on refining our new writing style.
What is your funniest gig moment?
Ian wins again! He was playing in Nottingham at rock city – as the band went to the stage from the dressing room, Ian decided to take a final toilet break. When he came out, he got lost on the way to the stage in the back room tunnels and heating ventilation system – a pure Spinal Tap moment!!
What do you think are the biggest obstacles for bands/artists today?
The biggest obstacles have to be time and money. When you start off as an artist, it takes lots of time, and most people have a job and family as well. You need to have a big passion for what you’re doing, that’s the most important thing.
What advice would you give to other bands/artists starting out?
Our advice would be to work hard and never give up on your dream! Do what you love, and don’t let other people tell you anything different.
What are your hopes for the next two years?
Our hopes for the next two years is to get more fans and attention for our music but also to play more shows! That would be really cool!
