dazyface - Sound In The Signals Interview

I recently had the opportunity to interview Blake Roses of dazyface ahead of the release of new song, “Permanent Hell”, which is out today. We discussed how the new song explains how he felt when he was in Oh, Weatherly, how his writing style has changed, musical inspirations, what fans can expect this year, and more. Check it out below.

First, thanks for the interview.

No, thank you!

Your new song, “Permanent Hell” is your first big release since you left Oh, Weatherly. Why did you choose this song to release first?

This is actually one of the first songs I wrote that I decided was for my solo project. I’m releasing it first to explain a little bit of how I felt while in the band. 

What about your writing has evolved since then?

My writing has gone through many stages. For Oh, Weatherly I wrote mostly out of anger or sadness and while writing the second album I realized I wasn’t angry or sad anymore. Some of the dazyface songs were written in the same day as an Oh, Weatherly demo because I hadn’t expressed myself otherwise. I feel like I’ve found a way to channel the songs from feelings faster.

What was the overall writing and recording process like for this song and where did you record at?

I remember writing the chorus of this one on a day off and singing it to my girlfriend on the piano. I self-produced it and recorded it at my home studio in LA after that.

I’m sure leaving Oh, Weatherly wasn’t a decision you made lightly. There was a lot of hype around that band and you were signed to Hopeless Records. On the opposite end, as a musician it must be refreshing to be working on a new project. What kind of inspiration and mindset do you have for this new project?

Yes, there’s a funny thing that people tell me “you made the biggest mistake. Oh, Weatherly was going to be huge.” This project is about doing what I want for myself and to share my stories with a style of music I actually listen to. Some of my inspirations are Lauv, LANY, and Charlie Puth. So, quite a different genre.

What are some of your hopes and plans for your new music? 

I have an entirely different mindset now that I’ve made a career out of producing and I’m not out to “get famous” anymore. I think for me I’m simply sharing my passion and my story without putting a face on.

Can we expect more music this year? Is there any chance that we’ll hear an EP or album?

Likely an EP! I’ve got a couple collaborations lining up as well.

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

Unapologetically be yourself.
