Check out Piqued Jacks new song, “Romantic Soldier” and find out the process behind making this sure hit.
Why did you select this song as your current single?
We actually selected Romantic Soldier because we just felt it was the right song: it has a strong chorus and we thought about how the final vocal choirs would get stuck into your head *wink wink*.
How does this single relate to the rest of the Album, EP or Mix-tape?
It’s all part of a big story that we created around this little girl named Ivy, but you’ll have to take a look at our beautiful artwork to understand it clearly. Let’s just say that she’s going through a journey that will make her rediscover an ancient land where all the beautiful things are kept safe and still.
What was the writing process for the song?
We always just write music when we are jamming: we start with a guitar or bass riff, and then we just put in whatever we feel it fits into the song.
What does this song’s lyric mean to you?
I’m pretty sure that for each of us this song mean something different, but if we have to pick a commont point of view, we’d say the strength of a person to prove himself without violence, like in a ‘’romantic’’ way, and the importance of what your predecessors/family taught you.
What would it be like to see you in person performing this song?
That’s a really cool question! So, let’s start just saying that when we play a live show we have some specials costumes (the ones that you can see watching our official video for Romantic Soldier) which light up because of some special paint we used. So in the end we would say that is a pretty interesting show !
Could your fans summarize who you are as an artist by this song?
Is there a video planned and or completed and if so, what was the idea behind the video?
Yes, Romantic Soldier already has an official video: the story behind it s all about that girl named Ivy, who’s exploring one of the landscapes that you can see into our artwork, in particular a tower and a library. We had the opportunity to shot into some cool places around Tuscany so, we suggest you to check it out 😉
One last question, what is your motivation behind your music?
We play music because is what make us happy. It’s all about that: we’d love to see our tunes spreading around the world. We actually have an ecological message too, and we’re trying to show people that you can do soooo much just with a couple of small everyday things.
