Hit play on this song and check out the interview with QC band Been There Done That!

Where did the inspiration come from to write this song?

I have a friend who I’ve known for years and who is the sweetest guy. I’ve always been told by my friends and family that I should try and date him and I’d love to but for some reason I just can’t fall for him not matter how hard I try.

Can you explain the process of writing/arranging the song?

Ava usually comes up with a lyric of chord progression idea and brings it to the band. then everyone helps with the lyrics and arrangement and write their own parts for their individual instruments

How about recording? Where did you go?

Recorded at the QC Rock academy and our band instructor Billy Gardener recorded and produced the album for us. We did it last summer and over the winter after a year and a half of writing it.

What’s the recording process like with your band?

The process is super chaotic since we pulled an all-nighter to record the majority of the songs, we were there for like 36 hours.

Where can people find this? Either streaming or a physical copy or both?

On any streaming platform- Spotify, Apple music, Pandora, Google Play etc. and we will be selling hard copies at our gigs.

Any more music coming out?

New single coming out on April 2nd and the full album will come out within the next two months
