Today’s Featured Artist – INTERVIEW – Rozu

Tell us about:

Your latest single you have released:

We just released Rue last month and has been my favorite release thus far. The idea behind the song lyrically was how we all kind of collect this baggage after every failed relationship and letting go of that baggage letting the past be in the past. We are very fortunate to have known Scott and have him on the track to give that chorus that bigger than life feel with his voice. We depicted the lyrics with the music video of essentially Tim being the inner demon/zombie and Scott being Tim in a way and easily having that battle within ones-self. This was a super fun release to say the least.

Your first single and how you felt when it was released:

The debut track we released was Dissolve and that feeling was super fun and exciting. We all kind of came together after Tim and DJ’s previous band disbanded and have all been in our scene in Denver for years. The best part was we kept everything super quiet as we wrote the first EP so when we announced the band, members, and dropped Dissolve we were absolutely blown away by the amount of love and immediate following we had from previous endeavors. 

Your favourite song that you have created that is an album track:

It’s safe to say Rue is our favorite. 

Your favourite song to play live:

Anchor is always fun to play just because it is balls to the wall from start to finish. It is also a fan favorite when shows were a thing.

Your most emotional track:

Rue by far, the vibe and emotion is all over the place in that one.

The best lyric you have ever written:

“Our Nation is moving forward, but our minds our moving back. We must all be stronger.” Isn’t necessarily the best lyric but is one that we all live by. We are by no means a political band but our previous presidency really pissed us off by just the sheer hate that rose in the US against other humans. We live in such a technologically advanced society yet we still have people grasping to the ideology of Hate and racism?? It’s mind blowing to us! We live by the truth of love and love for humanity in all shapes, color, beliefs, and gender.

Describe the feeling you get when you walk on stage to do a show:

It’s been a year now so just trying to remember (laughs). Seriously though it is the greatest feeling in the world and the amount of pure adrenaline is something to live for. You can be having the worst day after a long ass 10 hour drive then take that first step on stage and all the bad vibes immediately leave your mind.

The hardest track to play live:

Faceless is usually our last song and is one we go really really hard for on stage, easily leaving all of us out of breath and winded for the end of the show.

Essential items you always take on tour with you?

Underwear, Toothbrush/paste, deodorant, and baby wipes. Pretty much just self-care products to keep us from stinking on those nights we do the sink showers. Seriously touring bands that think it’s ok to smell like absolute dog shit needs therapy (laugh)

Describe your fans in three words:

Passionate, Loyal, Insane

A song by another artist or band you wish you had written:

Literally any song Underoath has written, those guys just ooze GOAT tier talent.

What we can look forward to from your band this year:

We have a couple singles to still release this year, hopefully we can actually get back on the road and on stages!
