Interview with Over Atlantic

Back in October, I went to Hello World and bumped into Over Atlantic, a band made up of five lads, Charlie, Trevor, Liam, Gabe and Sean. You can watch them in my vlog of the day. They came together from different countries to pursue their dreams and make some amazing music. Over Atlantic released their EP, Likes Me Like That, back in 2017 and it gives us just a small taste of what's to come from this band.


We've all decided that you can WIN one of their Polaroid T-shirts! All you have to do is RT the tweet below and follow my Twitter account. Simple! This will be running until...let's say 13th February. I'll contact the winner on Valentines Day (14/02/2018).
I've had the chance to chat to the band and ask them a few questions regarding their music and band life - there a even a few fan questions in there. I found this really funny when I read it first so you're in for a real treat!


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Describe Over Atlantic in 5 words.

Gabe, Liam, Trevor, Sean, Charlie


We know that the band clicked over a Skype call, what lead to the call that formed Over Atlantic?

It all started from Sean reaching out to us individually after seeing our covers online. From there we all started talking on Skype and then we finally formed in LA as Over Atlantic in June 2016.


When was the moment that you realise that you definitely wanted to be in a band with these people?

The first day we met! We got to LA not really knowing each other and we were there for 3 months so if we didn’t get on it would have been a very long trip haha! Within 30 minutes of meeting we went into our managers garage and started jamming and everything felt so natural.


Who inspired you to pursue a career in music?

We all have different tastes and inspirations, but as a collective we all think the 1975 and 5SOS are inspirational.


Where did the inspiration for your EP, Likes Me Like That, come from?

This is a funny story actually. We recorded a single (unreleased) and on the day that we were going to film a music video for it we decided we really didn’t want to put out the single. Then one of us said “what if we do an EP instead?”. This was one week before we were leaving LA so it was tight but we managed to find a producer and recorded the whole thing in his bedroom in 4 days. It was crazy but so much fun. We decided the title to be Likes Me Like That because that was the first song that was written as Over Atlantic.



What’s your line of lyrics off of the EP and why?

“Hold your heartbeat close, never let me go; all we need is here and now”


Can we expect any new music in 2018?

Yes, but we’re not giving anything away yet. :)


When you tour, what’s the last thing that you do before you go on stage?

We huddle up and yell random things to hype each other up.


What’s your favourite song to perform live?

An unreleased song named “both”.

Over Atlantic - What Do I Gotta Do (Official Music Video)

Tell us one thing about another band member that we don’t already know.

Charlie sucks his thumb sometimes!


Do you sing in the shower? If you do, what’s your go-to shower song?

We all sing “fireflies” by owl city every Thursday. Band tradition - don’t ask.


What’s your zombie apocalypse plan?

 Trip Sean and run.


I asked a few fans what they would ask you so here are a few of their questions.

@5secsofvibes asks: What’s your favourite childhood show?

Drake and Josh!


@fgsKilleen asks: If you woke up as a girl for the day, what would be the first thing that you’d do?

We would just have an ordinary day. Except we would sing Mariah Carey songs!


@courtneysfc00 asks: If you could be one other member who would it be and why?

Trevor would be Gabe so he could play drums in our set for one day.

Sean would be Liam cause he just wants to know what a day in Liam’s life would be like.

Charlie would Sean so he can fit in small places.

Liam would be Charlie so he can actually nail his Peaky Blinders impression!

Gabe would be Trevor and spend all his money so then when Trevor comes back he will be screwed. 

Some good questions there!


Do you have a message for your fans?

We love you, thank you for being so supportive and we’ll see you all soon!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Please go and support Over Atlantic, they're a great band made up of some lovely guys!

What was your favourite childhood show? Mine had to be Hannah Montana, haha!

Until next time...
