During the conversation, the girls discussed working on their long-awaited debut while in quarantine.

“We’ve been working on a full album right now. And, for like a couple of months now, almost like past eight months, we’ve mostly been in the studio. I think it’s made us more focused into completing the album and making it the best thing we can give to our fans, and perfecting it and everything. And so, I feel like this album could get a lot of light and energy to everybody being stuck at home not knowing what to do hopefully this can cheer them up,” they explained.

“We were talking to our producer the other day, and he was like, ‘We’re on such a roll right now that we feel like even after, we’re almost at the final stages of completing the album, and we were actually talking about how we should keep this on a roll.’ Yeah. Because, we’ve been in the studio literally every day for the last two months, so every single day, even if we have different schedules, we finish our schedule and be at the studio. And because, this doesn’t happen every day, where we’re literally working and producing and recording mode. So, he was like, ‘We should actually still get together and try and see if we could create more things,’” the group continued.

“I don’t think every single day creates more songs, I think it just creates more of quality songs. Let’s say, sometimes, it even means taking out songs that we feel like wouldn’t complete the album. I don’t think it’s about like the number of songs. I think that’s been a big thing for us too, we’re not always about creating and giving people a lot of songs, whereas, we try to work on a few songs that we can complete and give our best performance with it.”

The group also opened up about what their summer plans would have been pre-pandemic: “I think we would be on our world tour right now. Yeah, and then have our little days off in different countries, and maybe do a little tour around the cities, because we never really have the time to go travel around the world, so I think with this song, I hope we could bring that somewhere to the people that are listening at home.”
