How did you two meet and how did you decide to create music together?
Foster: Sid had been following my instagram actually for 3 years before we met, I had no idea. I noticed when he commented on a video I had posted after Trump was elected, where he defended me against a Trump supporter. I wanted to work with him when I heard his music, but I didn't plan on falling in love...which we did, when we met at a mutual friend's show. Making music together came really naturally for us.
What was the song writing process behind the single "Where Did The Truth Go"?
Sid: One of those songs that i don't even remember writing, we just kind of ended up with the song, those usually turn out the best.
Foster: Sid wrote it during serious cabin fever from a long winter in Brooklyn. We hadn't left our apartment in like a week. We record everything in our bedroom, so the rain in the beginning is from sticking a mic outside of our window for example haha. I've never stuck with a song for so long...each time we thought it was done, we would find another layer to add. When I hear "Truth", I see us working on it in our room while falling in love.
What is the inspiration behind the music video and how did you come up with the concept?
Foster: I shot with Andy Deluca, and we were blown away by his work. He became a good friend of ours... so in our eyes, no one else would have been a better fit for this video. Andy suggested using silhouettes and overlays, but other than that we made most decisions the day of shooting. We shot on the hottest day of a heat wave; I love Andy for sticking that out and pushing through to get the footage we did. I don't want to explain the video too much; I think it should be open to interpretation, and it means something different even to Sid and I.
Sid: Yea it felt super organic when we were shooting, we all knew what we wanted. I think the video is a great representation of what the song means to us.
Whats next for Girl Skin and Foster James?
Foster: We've got our collaborative EP LOVEMORE releasing May 18th, and we're both working on solo albums to release next!
Sid: We've both been recording tons, so more to come very soon.
