Timeflies Has Fans Under the Influence

By Madeline Zeppa

Cal Shapiro and Rob Resnick are Under the Influence on their recently dropped mixtape!

While weekly Tuesday night videos may have gotten their name out there, Timeflies have broken through and are showcasing their talent with more of their own creations in addition to covers of such hits as The Wanted’s “Glad You Came” and Rihanna’s “We Found Love.” The band tells MTV News, “It was really cool to take a hook that may have been written to mean one thing and take it in a new direction. The challenge is always to make music you can listen to in a variety of situations that’s emotional and fresh.”

The band has been on tour for much of the last year, leaving us to wonder when they found time to create such polished songs. “Only one of the songs was started on tour,” Cal tells MTV News. “The rest of the songs were either from days we had off and were briefly in the city at home, or things we’d started for Timeflies Tuesdays and decided we wanted to save to get a chance to really work on.”

“What was so great about this project was that it was sort of a fusion of our original stuff and what we’d been putting out in our weekly Timeflies Tuesdays,” Rez adds.
