T.H.E Interview – LOVE SICK

love sick interview

Greeted by fresh tastemaker attention from The Line of Best Fit and Wonderland, LOVE SICK’S recent single ‘Run Out Of Love’ provided a compelling taste of what to expect from their upcoming body of work. Now the Scottish duo unleash more of their artistic vision by sharing the new brand single ‘Get Wild’.

We caught up with the duo to learn more about how the single came about, and their upcoming mixtape.

Aditya – Hey guys, Glad to have you for the interview. How were the first couple of months of this year for you?

LOVE SICK – Hi thanks for having us! The first few months have been great so far! We’ve put out a couple of songs and just got back from LA after being there on a writing trip for the last month.

Aditya – ‘Get Wild’, your latest offering, sounds quite wild. Tell us about this track, creative process, and more.

LOVE SICK – This started with a beat Shaun made which we vibed with. We both sang some toplines over it and the ‘Get Wild’ lyric came out of that. We wanted it to feel like it was about needing to escape a relationship but also about escaping lockdown.

Aditya – What’s your creative process like? How do you both begin the writing process?

LOVE SICK – To be honest, there is no set formula to the way we work. We try to find different starting points to inspire different directions, sometimes we’ll start with a beat and write to that or sometimes chords or a lyrical idea/concept. Other times myself or Julie bring in a full idea and we try to finish it together.

Aditya – Could you share some info on your upcoming ‘Mixtape’ on the 1st of April?

LOVE SICK – We were writing so much during a lockdown, we had a lot of songs to choose from. This Mixtape is called ‘Sick’ and is the darker, moodier side to the project.

Aditya – When did you both meet? And when did y’all initiate the ‘Love Sick’ project?

LOVE SICK – We met at a work Christmas party and both had the same musical influences. We started meeting up and making music and then got together and became Love Sick.

Aditya – Where do you both draw your influences from and why?

LOVE SICK – Everything from music to movies to conversations with friends. Sometimes someone will say something about a relationship or just life in general and you think, ahhh that sounds like a good song concept!

Aditya – What’s the toughest part of being in a duo?

LOVE SICK – We can only argue with each other. Sometimes creatively it can be difficult because sometimes it’s one person saying trust me it should go in this direction, and the other disagreeing.

Aditya – What’s the ideation behind your alias ‘LOVE SICK’?

LOVE SICK – Love songs over Sick Beats

Aditya – Will you both be performing anytime soon?

LOVE SICK – We just played a show in LA and hope to play some hometown shows soon!

Aditya – Lastly, what do you looking forward to this year?

LOVE SICK – Putting out everything we’ve been working on and playing lots of shows.
