If you're looking for some new pop punk to listen to over the summer months, you have come to the right place. Manchester four-piece, Get Up Go, are just about to release their sophomore EP, You Jump, I Jump. The EP consists of three songs which incorporate raw energy, infectious melodies and thrilling riffs. We asked Get Up Go a few questions about what we could expect from their new EP...
HOW ARE YOU GUYS?
We're fantastic with a capital F! How could we be any lower? I mean, we just dropped a new video, we have an awesome new EP coming out and we are still rocking out with every waking breath.
HOW DID YOU COME UP WITH THE NAME FOR YOU JUMP, I JUMP?
Anders. It's always Anders. He comes up with the names we just pick one that we like. He probably has some sort of soppy meaningful reason for it, or its a line from one of his favourite rom-coms but we all liked it. It's kind of a reminder that being in a band is the epitome of teamwork and if any of these guys said jump, the rest would ask "how high?", no matter what.
TELL US A BIT ABOUT THE RECORDING PROCESS...
It was really fun, as per usual. Granted, we had a couple of late nights and struggles with arrangement and such but on the whole we really love the whole process. We also noticed how much better at it we had gotten since last time. We were a lot better rehearsed and much more relaxed going in. It shows through in the recordings. We had no stress and lots of laughs.
IF YOU COULD SUM UP YOU JUMP, I JUMP IN 5 WORDS, WHAT WOULD THEY BE?
If you're looking for a statement we'd say... Fun loving, good time tunes!
Or were you looking for separate words? In that case Big, fast, bouncy, uplifting, singalong.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE SONG FROM YOU JUMP, I JUMP AND WHY?
Collectively I feel it's 'BK, Like OMG!' Hence the reason we chose to shoot a video for it. It's about something we all hold dear to our hearts and that love will never EVER die. Not ever!
HOW DID YOU GO ABOUT PICKING THE ARTWORK FOR YOU JUMP, I JUMP?
We did what we always do, butt heads for about a week before someone says "Let's do this!" Then we all agree. We made it ourselves. We like to put that extra touch into the releases because we're proud and we want to show our creativity within every aspect of what we do.
You Jump, I Jump is out June 1st. Check out the video for BK, Like OMG! below:
