You released your second LP this summer. How has the response been so far?
Cristal: It’s been awesome. The fans have been more supportive than we’ve ever imagined, and we’re breaking into new fanbases and a bigger audience. It feels very rewarding.
Did you ever think about moving the album to a later date due to the COVID-19 situation?
Cristal: We did push our album back for about a month, but that was to support the Black Lives Matter movement. We didn’t want to take attention away from it and we wanted to use our platform to talk about the issue and spread awareness. In terms of the pandemic, it was more important than ever to put music out because of how scary and depressing everything has been this year.
As artists, we feel a big responsibility to bring the right albums out to help our fans get their minds off of everything that’s going on. That’s why we wanted to release our music and didn’t feel like postponing it.
