HOTT MT, The Love Story behind AU (Alternate Universe)

HOTT MT , which stands for Hour of The Time Majesty 12, inspired by a conspiracies radio show, is an indie electro rock band comprised of artists, Ashi Dala and Spooki Tavi. In this interview, Love Story Creative, MJ, interviews Ashi and Spooki about their experience getting kicked out of their home studio in DTLA and facing imminent homelessness during the time they were writing and producing their album, AU. Ashi and Spooki share some of the tools that got them through.

“The depth is important because it is something that everybody goes through. It’s a thing that is very human, and to ignore it and to try and bypass it to make yourself the greatest you can be is very dangerous…”-Ashi Dala

“It can be as simple as just having a little corner in your room where you have a light and a book like the Neverending Story that brings you to where you can feel okay, and maybe use that as a jumping board for some new ideas and write some stuff.” -Spooki Tavi
