New York-based Almost July is the creation of Skip Glogan and Derek Broomhead. They write, produce, and arrange all of their ambient, alt-pop songs. The duo made their mark at iconic NYC venues Rockwood Music Hall and Mercury Lounge, spending 2020 and part of this year at home alone, making music for locked-down listeners. They avoided total insanity by collaborating over zoom and live streaming from their home studios. Skip and Derek are excited to be recording and performing together again this year! Their next single, “even if it’s wrong,” is out on all platforms, and their upcoming live shows in NYC and Nashville promise new songs, new antics, and new visuals.
For fans who have never heard your music, can you pick three words to describe it?! If three words just aren't enough then tell us more!!
What is your favorite part about being an artist? Is it songwriting, performing, recording, something else?) Tell us why.
I know it sounds cliche but it's tough to pick we love being in the studio and hanging with fans whether it's performing live or straight up connecting with them.
Can you tell us what being in the recording studio is like for you?
It definitely feels like a mixed bag. Some days are great where ideas come together quickly and we're really happy with the outcome, and others we kinda get trapped in writers block but overall it usually works out.
Okay, this a fun question. When you are not doing music, what else do you enjoy doing?
Skating, fine dining, and breathing
Who do you admire most in the music scene today and why?
Just to name a few we're massive fans of Lauv, LANY, Nightly etc. Mainly we've become spotify playlist fiends and live on those.
Can you tell us what song you've written that is the most emotional and describe the meaning behind it?
We wrote a song called "young" a while ago which, even though the song changed throughout the corse of writing it, the original idea was about someone very close who passed around the time we started writing it.
Are you working on any new material right now or what's in the works for the upcoming year?
Yes we're working on a ton and have new release coming in early 2022, some live shows at the end of 2021, and much more to come really soon!
Tell us where fans can access your music.
Stream it on Spotify!
