EXCLUSIVE Interview: Pace

Pace have released a captivating new song 'Strange Secrets' and I spoke to them to learn more about them.

How are you?
We are all good thank you! We didn't see each other for what seemed like forever but kept in touch via Zoom and sent each other song ideas during lockdown. As restrictions have eased we’ve managed to meet up in the park and socially distance. We even had a jam the other day in Tillie’s garden! Life without gigs is pretty tough, we’re getting our live music fix by streaming performances. It’s weird when you think about how much has changed this year. 
What is your new single 'Strange Secrets' about?
Strange Secrets is about finding out that someone you trust has been lying to you . Life can unravel when you realise and emotions will inevitably run high. But it’s also about the empowerment you gain from knowing the truth and being strong enough to love yourself and not put up with any shit.  


What was it like co-writing with Justin Young (The Vaccines)? How did that come about?
Jamie and Justin are old friends and they managed to fit in a writing session in London between touring schedules last year. It was a very focused and creative day, we chatted about personal subjects, and after talking it out the idea for the tune, the melody and lyrics flowed naturally.
Who are your musical influences?
It’s a very corny thing to say but we’re all inspired by each other. We’re always up for trying 
something different in rehearsals and having fun with our music. We love working together which makes us want to push harder, play longer and experiment more. We all have eclectic taste in music which influences our sound in different ways. There are no egos when we agree something doesn’t work, it’s a very creative environment to work in.


Which artists are you listening to at the moment?

Jamie – Thompson Twins
Tillie – Jordan Rakei 
Danilo - Béla Fleck and the Flecktones
Michael – Jamiroquai


What's next for you?
We are planning for our next single release in August, then we aim to get back in the studio to record our debut EP. We also have a couple of Live Stream gigs over the next few weeks which should be fun!
