World Government Return With A Full Maxi-Single “Lucky” And A Marathon Of Videos
It’s hard to incorporate everything that sounds “good” in a single track when so much creative energy is being poured into a single track.
Occasionally, there are so many choices that it is difficult to distinguish between the “primary” version and any “remixes” that may exist. For their first single, WORLD GOVERNMENT created a collection of all the band’s takes on a single track.
World Government’s seven-track experimental album “Lucky” is an ultimate roller coaster ride because of its inherent offbeats and absurdity.
These versions, all created by the band, serve as a visual representation of the duo’s diverse interests and auditory preferences. It’s as if the same music is playing in many locations at once.
Originally, it wasn’t even intended to be a single, much less one with several variants. However, by the end of the summer of that year, everything had changed. Like many others, the pair was appalled by what was occurring in their own nation of Belarus during the “elections.”
As a result of my interaction with the band, I now know even more about their recently released album. More details about the band’s songs, aspirations, and plans for the globe were revealed. You may find out more about them in the following paragraphs.
What is your real and official showbiz name?
We are World Government and for that matter, we tend to not disclose our ‘real’ names. Especially so, since many people have not one name and even not one personality nowadays.
How long have you been making music and what attracted you to it?
For decades and the reasons, we’re all the same even though these were separate processes: a child’s fascination with the world of sounds.
What were your first project and the people you worked with and which year?
It all started in pre-historic times and it was happening without most modern digital technologies, mostly live and analogue.
Who or what inspires you or motivates you? And why?
Spirit of an Artist that still lives in living things. An Artist from capital A and in a broad meaning, not limited only to graphic artistry alone. Directors, writers, designers, musicians, painters, performers, all the crazy ones. Openness, kindness, and love are also good sources of inspiration and motivation.
What are your friend’s and parents’ thoughts on your career in singing?
Good opinions are too glorious and praising to be quoted and bad ones are not mean enough to make a good quote, yet.
What are some of the challenges you face in your career path?
We do not face challenges – the challenges face us!
How do you feel the Internet has impacted the music business?
Like in many fields, the internet brought out people from yards, pubs and living rooms into one giant space. Like in any field touched by the internet, there is a great challenge in digital communication, expression and understanding.
And world web revealed just how many people do things: write, play, paint, and shot photographs. We suddenly faced the density of the population, for which we do not seem to be ready, socially. It’s harder and harder to find a voice and be heard, it’s also harder to recognize, and take notice.
On the other hand, when the whole world is a stage, even most niche and far-located artists can potentially reach the whole globe. Even with our humble progress, it is inspiring to see the geography of people who listen to our music – that’s something that was not easily done even 10 years ago.
Also, it became very easy to create and release your art to the public. It might very well signal the end of times when creating something was a privilege of the chosen and most stubborn, something sacred, outstanding and rare.
But it seems like a fair price if what we’ll get in the end is a society where people would prefer singing to shouting and creation to destruction.
Do you have any advice for aspiring songwriters?
Find the balance. Do as much as you can at the moment, but not let yourself lose faith only because of trying to achieve tomorrow today.
What is your current project about?
Luck. Points of view. Blind fate and efforts applied. Glass half-empty and glass half-full. Pausing and reflecting.
What does this song mean to you?
Reminding ourselves about all the good and beautiful things in life. Remember that things could be worse and are worse for a lot of creatures around. Value of life.
What are your hobbies?
Computer games, philosophy, movies, sciences, skateboarding, cars.
What do you do aside from this profession?
At the moment – mostly nothing, music and music videos are our main doings. But it is a very special time and we do have a lot of things to try and even more to return to.
What is one message you would give to your fans?
