A trip-hop/alternative-rock duo from Oslo, Norway, Temperature Falls is a fusion of Pearl Jame, Portishead and Bjork. We took some time to chat with vocalist Camilla about the new release ‘Don’t Think I’m Shallow’, discovering new music and lots more!
Why did you decide to enter the music industry?
Both of us have a huge passion for music and wanted the opportunity to do music as much as we wanted. Sometimes it is timing and to find the people or person to do it with. I will say, from the moment we started to do music together was the moment we wanted to enter the music industry.
Can you tell us about ‘Don’t Think I’m Shallow’?
We’ve been really excited for this song to come out! We feel like with this song we have found our sound and style. We worked hard on it and now it’s time to share it-
What was the recording and writing process like?
Ian had come up with this really cool music idea. I loved the sound, feeling and flow. I instantly felt some ideas for vocals coming and I wanted to work on it right away! It was so much fun doing this song because it is a little different from previous releases.
Does the single have any significant meaning for you?
The song definitely has meaning for me. It’s about not settling for something safe and generic, but something different and exciting. That doesn’t mean I’m shallow, but it’s about bringing happiness, weirdness and meaning to your life.
What do you hope people take from your music?
I hope they will take the passion of feeling free in music production. Make what you feel and where your passion is. You don’t have to be like every other artist; dare to be different. In this way, I think your creativity will come through and the listeners will feel that.
What is more challenging – melody or lyrics?
Melody often comes really quick. I hear it almost right away if there is a song that truly inspires me. Lyrics sometimes can be difficult. Maybe it’s because I’m Norwegian and it’s about finding the right words in English. At the same time, find the flow and rhythm of the words.
How do you keep yourself motivated?
I think motivation is when we finish a song and are really proud of it. We also use each other as motivation by pushing each other and appreciating each other. The biggest motivation of it all is having fun doing it!
How would you describe your sound?
Our sound is rhythm, bass and drums. We like the song to have a good flow, awesome bass and rhythmic drums. I also think our sound is a different type of indie/pop music compared to what is out there. It is kind of cool to not be like everyone else.
What do you think is the best way to discover new music?
The best way to discover new music is actually to see what comes up as new music in all the streaming services. I also like to search for the type of music I want, like indie. In this way, you will get other people’s playlists and you will be surprised at how much good music is out there. Take your time and use the internet and streaming services to discover new music.
What does the future hold for Temperature Falls?
It is so difficult to know what the future will bring. What we both do know is that music will be a part of it. It’s a part of us and our life. Of course, we hope for the future to get more fans and more people to share our music with. We hope you all love this song as much as we do.
