Interview with Infinite Eights

Indie meets alternative rock outfit Infinite Eights are back with an electrifying new release, “Consequence of Doubt”. Having performed numerous live shows on Tampa’s WMNF 88.5 radio, the group has also been featured on Tampa’s 102.5 The Bone and 97X Local Motion. Armed with a challenging narrative that commands your full attention, the new track informs its listeners that the time for theorizing has passed.

To anyone new to your music, name 3 words that best describe your sound.

Sweeping, rhythmic, synth-oriented (hope a hyphenated word is acceptable!)

Tell MoggBlog viewers about your latest release! What’s the inspiration behind that?

Without saying too much (isn’t part of the fun in interpretation the ambiguity?!), “Consequence of Doubt” is a call to action in a world facing catastrophic environmental threats.

What’s your writing process like? Do you write the music or lyrics first?

The music always comes first. It affords us more creative freedom. We think it’s important to explore the ambiguous themes and emotions intrinsic to the music before fleshing out a particular set of themes and emotions with lyrics.

How do you feel the Internet has impacted the music business?

We think there have been positive and negative tradeoffs. One wonderful impact of the internet has been a democratization of the music industry; while record labels are certainly still important, they no longer hold monopoly power on the ability to reach large audiences. At the same time, we suspect that the internet has disincentivized certain forms of artistry in favor of an attention-grabbing, “get to the hook” model. And while this has been the trajectory of the music industry for quite a while, the internet seems to have accelerated the process.

What’s in store for you for the rest of the year?

We have several more singles planned for release this year! We’re aiming to drop a new single every few months. We’re also planning several shows in the southeast United States.
