Rooskin 'Cruising' Interview

I have been joined by 'Rooskin' who has just released their new single 'Cruising' who have kindly answered some questions about the song and their band so you can find out more about them!

Welcome to Totally Music, would you like to introduce yourself?

Rob: Hey this is Rob from Rooskin, a psychedelic indie surf pop band from Southend in the UK!

How did you all meet?

Rob: Myself and Matt went to school together and met Felix two weeks before the bands first UK support tour supporting Tugboat Captain. It was a panic to get ready in time but we managed it!

How did you come up with the band name ‘Rooskin’?

Rob: Once while surfing Matt asked some dudes if their board was made of “(kanga)rooskin” - it wasn’t!

You have just released your new single ‘Cruising’, would you like to tell us about it?

Rob: We’re really excited about this one and the batch of tunes we have to follow it up with. It features our pals from In Earnest, too!

What was the inspiration behind the song?

Rob: It’s a song about a lot of things. It’s a song about driving round and around town because you’ve got nothing else to do. It’s a song about being caught in the slipstream of someone you find really exciting and it’s a song about not getting hung up on the little things when there’s a bigger purpose to your life.

How did you come up with the single artwork?

Rob: We love the idea of using contemporary collage for our art as we feel it reflects the way the music is made, lots of different influences that create a warm and psychedelic final product!

What was the most difficult part in the creation of this song?

Rob: We recorded the backing vocals live in three part harmony. Matt along with Tom and Sarah from In Earnest gathered around a mic and sang it. They made it look easy though!

If you could open a show for any artist, who would you choose and why?

Rob: We’d love to open for Nature TV - oh wait! We are… 21st of April at the Victoria Dalston, London. See you there!

What is one message you want to give to your fans?

Rob: Thanks for listening & stay tuned, if this one didn’t blow you away I’m sure the next one will!

What’s next for you?

Rob: We’re going to be putting out another single and then an EP. We’ve also finally got a festival confirmed after having it rescheduled 3 years in a row because of you know what!
