A Great Conversation with Teardrop Cult

Love Music : Let’s talk a bit about you & your music and what is the secret behind your collective's success? 

Some of us have been producing a long time such as Cosmic Light who has been producing for 10 years and some of us have just recently started. Persistence is probably one of the best ways we have been this successful so far. Using social media as a way to advertise has really helped too, for example, Connor, who uses his personal account to promote too. Our music goes from dubstep, EDM, lofi-hip-hop, and vaporwave. This will be the sound of the mixtape.

Love Music : Can you please tell our readers more about the collective members and their role in the band?

The collective currently has 4 members that consist of ACID CTRL, NXVA, Connor and Cosmic Lights. We all do our own thing and usually collaborate together. NXVA does lofi/vaporwave and most of the graphics, Cosmic Lights does EDM and dubstep, Connor raps and ACID CTRL produces Vaporwave/Synthwave. We're all unique and are equally important to the collective.

Love Music : Please tell us more about your upcoming album? 

It's called Colourblind, it will feature all four of us and show off our different and unique sounds which include vaporwave, hip-hop and EDM. It will be released soon on YouTube, Soundcloud, and other music streaming sites.

Love Music : Who are your main musical influences?

Our musical influences are very diverse from trap artists such as Ghostemane and Scarlxrd to Darude, Rick Astley to Getter. This makes us a unique collective because of how expansive our tastes are. 

Love Music : How has music shaped your life? 

Some of us grew up with different types of music genres, which helped the production of our music now. NXVA is a big fan of physical music such as cassettes and CDs which helps with creating physical media.

Love Music : If you could perform anywhere, in the world, where would it have to be?

Japan would be great for the aesthetic reasons, but realistically, most likely America as that is where we could hit a key fan group.

Love Music : Do you have any advice for anyone wanting to be a professional musician?

Do it and stick with it, it doesn't have to conform to what sounds "normal" or what people like, make it because you like it. Do it with a passion, if not, what's the point? 

Love Music : Have you set some goals to achieve as a collective?

We're just trying to release our album and get ourselves out there at the moment.

Love Music : Are you active on social media? what’s the best way to follow you?
