Hey Slomo Casino, and welcome to LiveTrigger Magazine! We are really excited to support you in this new exciting release. Tell us everything about it.
Following our Debut EP ‘Marshmallow’s’ release, we wanted to take some time doing our own take on some of our favourite songs before our next EP Later this year. First up is ‘Just the Two of Us’ from Grover Washington Jr, sung by the legend himself Bill Withers. It’s still the same old soulful classic, just with a gentle indie twist with an alternative flavouring.
Are you excited about this single launch?
We are positively thrilled. There’s something really exciting about showing people another iteration of something they already know really well
What is the process you use to create your music?
With it being just the two of us (do not excuse the pun), we tend to just bounce ideas to and fro, either from inside Jonny’s home studio where it is said we can dwell for days on end, or via a voice memo may be while in the shower or waiting at the tram stop.
For that reason, we like to start with a really stripped back idea for a song that we can build from the ground up, and we took the same approach for these covers when trying to make them our own.
And what about the video?
Video wise – all will be revealed soon enough!
What are your favourite artists and/or composers?
We love retro stuff from the Beech boys to the Beegees, ELO, The Kinks, Ottis Redding, George Harrison…. You name it
Do they have anything in common?
They’re all well dressed cool cats with good hair
How did they influence your style & sound?
(Jonny) We owe it all to them… To me it’s really obvious listening to our music where our influences come from which I think is pretty cool.
What’s the most exciting thing that happened to you recently?
So, what’s next? Any big plans?
After this release we have a second surprise take on another favourite song of ours before our second EP comes out later this year!
What do you think about Livetrigger?
Livetrigger seems like a really cool concept – the Casino likes it a lot!
