Pyramid Tropic Share Synth-based Dance Track “Last Forever”
Fueled by late nights in basement studios and frequent runs to the local café for coffee, Pyramid Tropic is a study in contrasts. One member is known as the singer/songwriter of a Toronto-based indie pop band while the other is recognized for designing music production software used by programmers working with Bjork, Coldplay and Depeche Mode. The chemistry was instant and the creative rush resulted in a flood of tracks being completed in their respective studios.
The band’s new single, “Last Forever” is a percussive, synth-based dance track. Take a listen below and read our exclusive interview with Pyramid Tropic!
What makes ‘Last Forever’ different from your past work?
‘Last Forever’ differs from previous work in its electronic style and 80’s production but underneath, is really just the typical area of melancholy that many of my songs have dwelled in.
Can you describe the concept behind the track?
No real concept at work here other than longing for someone who is no longer close to you, literally and figuratively.
How would you describe your artistic evolution throughout your career?
I think that artistic evolution is an ongoing process (albeit a subtle one) that perpetually continues if you’re constantly chasing ideas. The only time I’ve ever felt a pause or stagnancy in this process is when I became too preoccupied with other things or felt that I didn’t have enough of the time and energy to commit to a particular project or idea to bring it to fruition.
What’s been the biggest change in your life over the past year?
Realizing that one’s potential means nothing if you’re not putting pen to paper and putting action to words. It’s feels as though it could even be similar to the difference between existing and not existing.
What song by another artist do you wish you had written?
There are a number of these. But “Have You Forgotten” by The Red House Painters and “Blonde In The Bleachers” by Joni Mitchell come to mind.
And finally, where can readers keep up with what you are doing?
I don’t tend to keep up with the internet a ton and it seems we’ve become a little too inundated with it at times. That being said, it’s probably the first point of reference for announcing any new material etc. I have the standard social media facets in place (somewhat!) for my personal as well as band profiles.Tweet
