When you first got the band together, what was your initial aim? Where did you want it to go?
Originally, it was just about creating the music. At first, we had a bit of a writer’s block and we couldn’t quite figure out the vibe that we wanted. And finally, we worked with new producers from Sweden and kind of just broke the mold. It all happened very quickly and we’re really thrilled with the reaction and how things have happened so far.
How important do you think chemistry is within a band and do you think you have it?
Chemistry is very important. You’re sharing every moment with that person and you want to be able to feel comfortable with them, wherever you go. Sometimes you’re traveling internationally, you’re sharing a tour bus. Not to mention the overall vibe about performing on stage. You want to feel comfortable. I’m very lucky to say we get along.
You must have a lot of unreleased tracks under your belt that you can’t wait to put out. Do you have one in particular that you’re eager to release?
I’d say that Cake By The Ocean has been one of my favourites. There’s also a song called Almost that I wrote with our producer, Nolan, and a few other writers in LA. Almost is a personal song and I feel like it’s really fun to share those with the world. When you can really pull from personal experience and find a way to showcase it in a relatable way, it’s always a rewarding feeling. If you’re going through stuff and have any sort of creative outlet, you might as well put it into good use.
You’ve also had a solo project beforehand. Pros and Cons to working solo as opposed to working in a group?
There are a lot of similarities. There are obviously things that you do when you’re traveling and touring with your brothers that are nice, because you’ve got your family with you at all times. And then, there’s also the element of playing with friends. It’s a fun vibe. But I do prefer playing in a group. There’s something special about our band.
Do you have to deal with Jonas Brothers comparisons anymore?
There are sometimes some comparisons here and there, but I don’t mind. We’re also really supportive of each other’s individual careers, so it makes it all a lot easier.
