When Athena began Twitch streaming it was for one sole goal: she needed to play Rocket League on-line. The thought of streaming the rest was a non-starter for her as a result of she beloved it that a lot. The sport about rocket-powered automobiles enjoying soccer is an addictive escape from actuality for some, however for her, it modified her whole life. That love has grown from a interest to a profession, and has led to some fairly superb alternatives. It additionally ultimately put her on the trail to fulfill music duo smle, made up of Grammy-nominated digital duo Ruben Cardenas and Lewis Martinee.
The pair love video video games themselves, with Cardenas placing 2000 hours into Rocket League himself, and Martinee being a daily streamer on Twitch enjoying video games like Overwatch and Valorant. It’s that love of video video games that pushed the three to make a music video collectively, with Athena transferring previous streaming into singing on the observe. It simply made sense, with gaming being the bridge between worlds, because it typically is.
Uproxx Edge obtained with all three to debate how the music got here collectively, their love of gaming (particularly Rocket League), their Mad Max themed video, and extra.
Chris Barnewall: What does this music and video imply to you?
Athena: Creating “Everlasting” will eternally be a pivotal second in my life. Music has at all times been an enormous ardour of mine, and to have the ability to create one thing that has by no means been carried out earlier than is unforgettable. I hope everybody can really feel how a lot coronary heart we have now put into this music. Get excited for extra future releases!
Cardenas: “Everlasting” is a reasonably particular second for us, Athena, and the music and gaming worlds. It’s the primary time a Rocket League content material creator pairs up with an artist who’s had in-game music to make a music particularly for the sport. It’s been so enjoyable getting every part collectively for this – from having a number of the different prime Rocket League content material creators cameo within the video, to working carefully with Monstercat and Psyonix to make this a significant second, has been nothing in need of thrilling. We hope these listening really feel as energized as we’re, as a result of this one’s actually particular to us.
What led the three of you to determine to collaborate collectively?
Cardenas: So [I’m] a giant fan of Rocket League and I’m at all times, you understand, conserving my ear to the streets so far as all of the creators and stuff and I’d watch Athena right here and clearly she’s into Rocket League however she sings as nicely. And I used to be type of like, whoa, she sings nicely. One night time I used to be popping in to [her Twitch] chat and began speaking about music proper when she was speaking about music and she or he acknowledged us from our music earlier than as a result of she appreciated a few of our music. After which we took a shot like “hey you need to do music collectively?”
Athena: Truthfully, it was simply a mixture of two worlds that I’ve at all times been extraordinarily enthusiastic about, and to have the ability to type of work collectively, you understand, with Ruben and Lewis. And to do one thing that I do know lots of people will hopefully take pleasure in. It was completely insane. It was simply, it was simply the proper second on how we met and the way we have been in a position to, you understand, simply dive into the entire, the entire music. It was unbelievable.
Have you ever at all times needed to sing?
Athena: Music has at all times been an enormous a part of my life. I’m certain you’ll be able to ask anybody. It’s been such a consider every part that I do, whether or not or not it’s, you understand, warming up for basketball in highschool or enjoying video games on Twitch, and having that within the background. It’s simply one thing that individuals can bond to and simply relate to 1 one other with the lyrics. And I’ve at all times needed to take that additional step and actually dive into it, however I by no means actually had the chance. And so when this arose, and Ruben and Lewis went and contacted me. I couldn’t let this go up.
Did you are taking any singing classes earlier than this?
Martinee: She’s a whole pure. She’s superb.
Athena: Okay, you’re being method too variety.
Martinee: I’m not!
Cardenas: It’s for actual dude.
Athena: I simply by no means actually thought I’d be singing on a music, identical to, as a collaboration, I at all times discovered singing was one thing that I simply love to do in my spare time and granted, singing classes could be nice and I hundred p.c ought to take them. However no, that is type of my first step into the music world and I haven’t actually carried out voice classes.
What sort of music does everybody prefer to take heed to if you’re not streaming or making your individual music?
Martinee: I’ve all kinds of genres. I actually like pop rather a lot, and Indie, generally people music. That’s often what I’m listening to.
Athena: I feel for me, I typically say that I used to be born within the unsuitable decade. I completely love Fleetwood Mac, Billy Joel and I typically discover myself listening to oldies and simply classics and my dad and mom listened to them rising up. So I listened to them rising up and have very fond recollections tied to them.
Cardenas: Yeah, and I grew up rock and roll and blues and stuff like that my dad and mom listened to and likewise lots of pop. Yeah, simply type of like all over. Undergo phases, you understand?
Why Mad Max because the inspiration for the video?
Martinee: Nicely, as a result of one the aesthetic is tremendous cool. Loads of lyrics are based mostly and actually taken from a Rocket League map referred to as Wasteland, which has that complete Mad Max aesthetic.
Athena: So it was I feel a component of the music video is to have it ultimately tie again to Rocket League. Due to course, Rocket League has had such a huge effect on my life and that’s how I met Ruben after which Lewis. So I feel it was actually vital for us to have some automobile some race factor to it and we discovered that having a race that was simply Mad Max type was the proper mixture and only a type of paid homage to the sport that impacted us a lot.
