Are you ready for the new week? Well, to get you going we’ve got a brand new Track of the Week.
BIMM Berlin band The Flavians sound is warm and nostalgic, and their latest release ‘Eloise’ is no different. Take a listen and discover more about the track below.
What was your inspiration when you began writing the track?
I remember reminiscing about more youthful days, when everything was so much clearer and unconstrained, this song is a collage of all the good stuff and all the fuck-ups I’ve done from that time until today.
Are there any artists that inspire you when writing?
This song is definitely and ode to The Beatles and Brian Wilson. We are interpreting some of their signature sounds, but the mix of the four individualities within the band hopefully makes it sound more like us than anything else.
What is key to your sound and how do you make your music stand out?
We all contribute with different influences and somehow we manage to boil it down to something that represents The Flavians.
How does your songwriting process work?
It is different every time, but in this case ‘Eloise’ was a song I’ve worked on in seclusion for a long time, and after several attempts to find a fitting band arrangement we managed to figure out something we all liked.
Describe your sound in 3 words…
Slippery slope music.
How has studying at BIMM helped you develop as an artist?
In every possible way really, I’ve become more self-assured on stage, and technically I consider myself a better songwriter than before. Due to the amount of useful contacts at BIMM we’ve also been able to perform our music live at some really cool venues.
What’s next for you?
We are in the middle of the process of mixing and mastering our debut album, “Ordinary People in An Ordinary World”, which will be released in late January 2020.
