Dartel did a choice interview for Rip It Up’s NZ Music Month Q&A - click the link to read the full thing. Big thanks to Martyn Pepperell for making it happen.
“The EP is called “Shoot For The Moon”, which we released early April for free download on Bandcamp. Prior to the release we put out our “SFTM” video trailer, which is the video for the first track off the EP. It’s really about the aspiration side of making music - aspiring to be a true artist, hence the title. So overall it’s about wanting what can come from reaching your goals and aiming high. It’s not super chirpy or upbeat, but it’s very honest. I think the songs are an accurate description of what it’s actually like to be in that position, being a person trying to reach an ambitious goal.”
