Brave Days - Sound In The Signals Interview

I recently had the opportunity to interview Brave Days. We discussed writing and recording their latest EP, trying to be serious while filming a music video, lyrical inspiration, what’s next for the band, and more. Check it out below.

First, thanks for the interview.

Of course! Thanks so much for reaching out. 

You recently released a video for your song “Work In Progress”. Can you tell me about putting the video together? Who came up with the concept for it?

Doing the video was actually insane. We wanted to have serious....esque vibe to it. So getting all five of us to be somewhat serious for more than 20 seconds was a HUUUUGE stretch. We had a blast though. 

Our good friend Tyler Allen filmed it and came up with the concept. He had so much grace for us being goofy and breaking out laughing at the worst time. He’s a champ. 

You released your ‘Work In Progress’ EP last year. Tell us a bit about the writing and recording process. Have you been pleased with the response you got so far? 

The response to the EP has been incredible to say the least. People from all over the world have messaged us about it impacting their lives, and it’s absolutely nuts to think about. 

The writing process was sort of odd, because part of us had most of the songs written, but we moved to DFW from Abilene. So in a new place, and with new people, we wanted them to put in their own touches. So we went back to the bare bones and rewrote everything. 

We asked our friends who run Honey Gold Records if we could record with them. Then they decided to just sign us during the process. Eric, Kalen, and Jonny are so much fun to record with and have challenged us SO MUCH in doing the best job we can and not settling. We all share a similar vision, so it has made everything 100,000,000 times easier. 

I really like the song “Sound Waves” from the EP. Can you tell me about writing that song specifically? What was the lyrical inspiration for it?

Sound Waves is about a friendship that never turned into a relationship, that went on for a few years between our vocalist Eric, and a girl who lived in another state. He was letting himself be strung along, and trying to make things work, when he knew nothing would come out of it.....besides a good song right? 

A few years after something emotionally damaging happens, you can write about it from a perspective other than just being hurt. So it’s more about learning a lesson of your value, and looking back on the lesson. 

It sat on the back burner for a long time until the right line up came along. One of our guitarists played the verse chord pattern, and then we wrote the rest in about half an hour. It seriously wrote itself. 

I also really like the sound of the EP and how it was mixed and mastered. Where did you record it at?

Honey Gold Records! Eric Jones recorded, mixed, and mastered most of the instruments. Jonny Gore did vocal recording, and Kalen Orr did the gang vocals. They’re seriously the best people to work with. 

Do you have any plans for new music this year? Have you been writing or recording at all?

We’re actually in the studio currently for a new single. We have a second EP already planned out. If we keep cranking out the songs at the speed they were demoed at, we might actually do a full-length! 

Thanks for taking the time to answer the questions. Do you have anything else that you would like to add?

You’re so welcome! What y’all are doing is really rad. Thanks so much for asking us to be part of this! 

It’s a crazy world out there. Just wear your mask, stay safe, and remember that you’re loved and alive. We’re all works in progress.
