Twist Online : Tell us about your upcoming single “Shiloh and Safe sex”?
TheCollab : This song stems from real life situations. when dwelled upon brings back memories of a time in which loneliness played a factor in this song. The artist Shiloh dynasty invokes these emotions that are in this song. Feelings such as love, happiness, and a little bit of regret. These emotions fill his songs. Sometimes when you are involved with someone, knowing that you have feeling for another person, brings out that regret.In making this song we decided to focus more on the euphoric side of being involved romantically with a significant other. This is a song based off the thrills and chase to obtain the euphoria that one hopes to gain from their partner.we are excited about the project and are dropping the music video for the song in the month of May.
Twist Online : What kind of response you are expecting from the release?
TheCollab : We are expecting a positive release once we drop the music video. we believe that the visuals with add fire to the song in a way that people will gravitate towards it.The song is meant to invoke feelings. What the audience feels is up to them, but will be based on how the song relates to their lives.
Twist Online : What attracts you more, performing on stage or working in studios?
TheCollab : Honestly we enjoy both, but there is something about preforming for crowd and having them feel your energy and having them reciprocate it back. To see the interactions and the crowd get hype as you get hype, there is nothing better.
Twist Online : What’s your favorite music genre?
TheCollab : Hip hop
Twist Online : Have you set some target to achieve as a music artist?
TheCollab : Yes we have. We want to become a staple in the rap industry. But it is more about getting our music out to an audience that can relate to what we talk about. In a lot of ways we are different from what is popular now, but at the same time we do whatever/whenever. which means we can switch genres and our sound with the drop of a dime. Another goal of our is to run our group as an official label. We want to be able to affect positive change with our music. We want to be able to make our city proud and be able to show the world that Nashville is more than a country music town.
