I.O.U. Sits Down With iMoveLive To Discuss “The Soul & The Intellect”

IOU The Soul & The Intellect

Buck and Izee who make up Inside Our Universe, long for I.O.U., recently sat down with iMovieLive to discuss their debut album “The Soul & The Intellect,” the reason as to why they chose “Other Side Of Fear” as their lead single, what inspires them and much more! The album is available for purchase on iTunes, and you can read below an excerpt of the interview and  read the entire article here.

Why did you select this song as your current single? 

One of our main goals as a group is to inspire whoever we can, however we can. We feel ‘Other Side Of Fear’ does just that. The message is simple “Everything you’ve ever wanted is on the other side of fear.” People can truly do whatever they desire to do, they just have to lay down their fears, and they’ll pretty much end up having the greatest time of their life doing so.

How does this single relate to the rest of the Album? 

Well, the album as a whole represents the unique aspects of who we are as individuals, thus naming it “The Soul & The Intellect”. Yet there are some gems within the album that we’ve been able to mold together our voices. This single is one of many that shows our ability to mesh together The Soul and The Intellects style of music.

What was the writing process for the song? 

It was a very simple process. While in college Izee created the music. Buck, not being in college, went over to his apartment and heard it. Then over the course of one week, Buck and Izee wrote and recorded the entire record.

I.O.U. – The Soul & The Intellect

IOU - The Soul & The Intellect

After three school pride anthems that went viral, and three mixtape releases in the past two years garnering attention from their Rutgers University colleagues and fellow college students across the country and beyond, opening for countless acts such as Big Sean, Far East Movement, Jake Miller and more, the boys linked up with Radikal Records to release their debut album.

“The Soul & The Intellect“ reflects the characters of both Buck and Izee, laidback Buck being the soul of the duo, and methodical Izee, producer behind the entire project, the intellect. Also featured as a vocalist on two tracks off the album is Evangelia, a Rutgers University student. When she’s not studying pre-med, you can catch her performing at the local coffee shops armed with her guitar and powerful voice.
