Review Fix chats with Little Cities’ Mitch Gallant, who lets us know how the band got together and what their goals are for 2020.l.”, as well as their new single.
Review Fix: How did you get involved in music?
Mitch Gallant: Most of us were just super fans of certain bands. The bands sometimes, being polar opposites depending on which members you ask. But we wanted to be able to create something that can bring someone else the feelings those bands gave us.
Review Fix: What’s your creative process like?
Gallant: Usually, an idea starts with one or 2 members who make a rough demo of a full song or a section of a song. Then it is brought to the group for a playthrough and adding in other ideas and changes. Then before it’s recorded we do one more round of changes/improvements.
Review Fix: What inspires you?
Gallant: The challenge of making a song that people want to listen to. Making a song that is easy to throw in the middle of a playlist with some of our favourite bands and not sounding out of place.
Review Fix: What does music mean to you?
Gallant: Music is a great way to talk about things or tell stories you may not be comfortable with just talking about. It’s basically a journal and something concrete to remember points in your life.
Review Fix: How would you describe your sound to someone who has never heard you?
Gallant: We love pop music, we love punk music and we love rock music. Throw it in a microwave on high and don’t wait for it to cool down.
Review Fix: How are your live shows different from your studio work?
Gallant: We keep our songs as close to record as possible because it’s something we love when our favourite bands do. We like to hear the songs we love as we fell in love with them. That being said we bring a lot of energy and smiles along with interludes and intros to spice things up.
Review Fix: What inspired your latest single?
Gallant: It was an old song with a different meaning. We simplified the structure and melodies changed the lyrics to be something more relevant to us personally and really tried to serve the song with our instrumentals and keep it simple and fun.
Review Fix: What are your goals for 2020?
Gallant: In 2020 we hope to release more music and keep our momentum. Play shows with some bands we love, make new friends and maybe new fans if we’re lucky.
Review Fix: What’s next?
Gallant: Next is the same as it always is for fun. Write, rewrite and practice.
Review Fix: Anything else you’d like to add?
Gallant: Thanks for taking the time to read this or check out Little Cities. We really appreciate every youtube play or stream we get and can’t wait to put out more content.
