Interview // BAY RAYS
Following the release of their new EP Darkness And Doubt last month, we hit Bay Rays with some questions about creativity, personal insecurities and the current music industry.
What are the main themes/feelings captured on Darkness And Doubt?
An under current of insecurity in your present environment will always play a big part of any aspect of your life, and definitely for the creative process of this EP.
What was the biggest challenge when working on the new EP?
Approaching anything with minimal budget will always force you to be creative, we count ourselves very lucky to have such a group of supportive people around us.
Where do you draw inspiration from?
Life experiences place a huge part within our music, also drawing inspiration from our peers.
What’s your favourite lyric on the EP?
Two kicks with a toss and I feel and a shake.
What’s your response to the popular belief that guitar band is a dying breed?
Listen to the EP.
What’s the weirdest thing that’s happened to you as a band?
On tour we slept in our van most nights, this one particular night we pulled up at an attractive view point in the countryside. It soon became very clear that there were a lot of solo dudes in their cars around us…turns out we had stumbled across the local dogging spot. Safe to say we got out of there pretty quickly… or did we ;).
Name one thing you’re scared of.
My hair line.
If you could live in any movie, which one would it be?
Lord of The Rings obviously.
What advice would you give to new bands?
Write music for yourself and don’t follow trends.
And a cliché question, what does music mean to you?
I think for everyone they use music for escape and I definitely think that’s what we do through writing and preforming.
