7st baby are back with a new single “horses” from their debut album “control” , the trope of musicians comprised of Kyle Mackenzie, Ben Martin and Greg Webber spoke to SnapDragon about the new single, album and plans for the future.
First off how’re you?
I’m very good thank you 🙂
Tell us a little bit more about the band, where did you start and how did you form?
7stbaby began several years ago when Ben and I started a band called Static Plan, after writing a ridiculous amount of riffs for the first Static Plan EP, which weren’t right for what we were making, we decided we wanted to use them and came up with the idea of 7stbaby. It was put on the back burner for a long time and in August 2013 we decided it was time and wrote and recorded the album in 3 weeks
What is the story behind 7st baby’s name?
I honestly can’t remember! I pretty sure it was a Benism, but however it came about I love it as a name
The new album “control” was out earlier this year, what was that like to write and record?
It was a great experience, loads of fun and really noisy! It was great to be a part of a project where anything goes musically
“Horses” the new single is out on the 26th September where did the inspiration for this come from?
‘Control’ is a concept album about being trapped in your own mind. ‘Horses’ is the climax of the album, where the prisoner finally breaks free of those controlling him
What are the bands plans for the rest of the year?
Haha no idea yet! I think we will be concentrating on other projects for the foreseeable future
Thank you for talking to us today
Thanks for having us!
