Nicholas Sparks Inspired A Rocket To The Moon
One of the first tracks the band wrote for Wild & Free was "First Kiss," a song the band is convinced would make for a great feature in a Nicholas Sparks film. "We tried to just write about the act of a first kiss at that age in our life," Richards said.
Santino said it's important for A Rocket To the Moon to write relatable songs. "As cheesy as it is, a first kiss happens to pretty much everybody," he said. "It was the first song we wrote for the album. We kind of tucked it away for a while and wrote a bunch more songs and when it came to picking songs for the album that was one of the first ones we brought up. It's been getting good feedback so far and I think it's because it's super relatable."
"First Kiss" is a soaring ballad that describes a first date in vivid detail and isn't a long way off from each member's own first kiss.
"It reminds me of being in sixth grade, seventh grade and not being able to drive myself [to a date] and you get dropped off at the house," Richards said. "Dad answers the door and you're scared of him." more on this story
