Alone I Walk - Sound In The Signals Interview

I recently had the opportunity to interview Alone I Walk. We discussed their cover of The All American Reject’s “Move Along”, their thoughts looking back on their EP, ‘The Hardest Years Yet’, a favorite memory from recording the EP, the possibility of new music, and more. Check it out below.

First, thanks for the interview.

Thank you for having us, we’ve seen a lot going on with Sound In The Signals recently on social media and couldn't be more happy to be chatting with you.

You recently released your cover of “Move Along”. What made you pick that song to cover and how did you put your own spin on it?

So the song wasn't actually a “new” cover to us, for anyone who's had the opportunity to see us over the past couple of years knows we used to play it live. So when the time came that we had to do a few covers we chose Move Along because it was familiar to us and our fans. When playing the tune live we always gave it a bit more energy and we wanted to incorporate that in our studio cover. Working with Scott Goodrich helped amplify our vision for the track.

You also posted an acoustic performance of the cover. Is there a chance we could see more acoustic covers or original songs performed on Instagram?
Yes absolutely, throughout the last year without having the chance to tour, we’ve had a plethora of time to write new music and fall in love with music from other artists, so in the near future I’m sure there will be more snippets and teasers that will be added to our IG feed.

Your EP ‘The Hardest Years Yet’ came out in 2019. What are your thoughts looking back on it now?

Revisiting our time in the studio is always a pleasant experience, we can recall every single moment that happened inside of Catacomb Recording Co. with Johnny Liu, he was an amazing engineer/producer to work with and helped us grow as musicians. He really pushed our imagination and abilities in those 7 days. It was one of the greatest experiences we've had to date.

Have you been working on a follow-up to that EP? If so, how far along are you in the process?

Yes, we started recording follow up material shortly after returning from recording the first EP. Since then we’ve gathered a collection of about 20 songs that we have been picking away at endlessly for over a year as we hope to get back in the studio in the near future.

What’s one of your favorite memories from recording that EP?

One of the most surreal feelings was definitely sitting in the control room on the last day at 4 am, we had just finished tracking the last piece of percussion and we were all beyond gassed and had no idea what to do with ourselves. I remember Johnny saying “alright let's listen to the record”  we just sat and listened to what had been created in awww.

One thing that I think is awesome that you shared was the farm tour video. Is there any chance that we’ll ever see a second farm tour video?
Oh absolutely! There have been tons of changes made on the farm from additional animals to new structures so I'm sure it’ll become a more of an annual video to keep everyone up to date with all things happening on the farm.

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

Thanks so much for having us, these were great questions! We just like to say, if you've got a few moments of time please check out our 2 latest releases I think you'll really dig them! Much Love -Alone I Walk
