Sofa King Cool caught up with Aseity to discuss the new single “Silent Whispers” Feat. Taylor Barber
Tell us about this latest single “Silent Whispers” what made you come up with the idea for the song?
Rob Volkoff: After our debut single “Losing Myself”, which was just a taste of our music, we wanted to go more aggressive and straightforward musically and lyrically. We wanted to display more vocal prowess and metal instrumentation.
Does the song have any personal meaning to you or was it something in an observation you wanted to get across to your fans?
Monica Soe: The lyrics express the oppression that I’ve dealt with as a woman throughout my adult life, and how I’m no longer going to compromise what I believe just because someone tells me otherwise.
How did you all handle the writing process for “Silent Whispers” is writing a group process?
Rob Volkoff: Usually music is written first, and then I give it to Monica to figure out the subject and we both come together to figure out vocal melodies. This song musically was very straightforward, and Daniel Gailey gave some critiques for the final touches.
Monica Soe: After Daniel was through with it, I pretty much sat on it for a while trying to figure out what emotions the music made me feel.
How soon do you think the band will be able to get back into performing on stage and possibly festivals and touring? Any dates yet?
Monica Soe: Currently, we are working on music and have not planned any touring as of yet. Once we get our online presence built up more, then we will figure out our live performance schedule.
Rob Volkoff: This project is more focused, for the time being, on growing our social media presence and releasing solid, quality music and content.
How would you describe your music to people who never heard it before?
Monica Soe: Amy Lee goes metal.
Rob Volkoff: Heavy riffs, angelic vocals.
Finish the sentence: Aseity’s music is music created for the people who feel voiceless.
Looking at the rest of 2021 what can your listeners look forward to from you?
Rob Volkoff: More singles and videos with quality content on our social media accounts. We plan on engaging with our fans through different outlets. We will be sharing our behind-the-scenes process with songwriting and videos.
Monica Soe: Also, I will stream video games on Twitch for people to come to hang out and watch me be goofy.
