Congratulations on your new song, ‘ fall in luv’. Would you say this is the beginning of a new era for you as an artist?
Thank you so much, and yes. In a way this is always the era that I’ve been in, but haven’t really been able to achieve. I’ve been doing music for so long that now that I know what I want things to sound like, and more importantly, I know how to tell a producer that. There was a long time where I just wasn’t confident enough in my ideas to speak up. Everyone was always so much older than me and it all seemed so scary, but as I get older I realise that nobody really knows what they’re doing, so you might as well say your piece.
WHAT KIND OF MUSIC DO YOU MAKE?
I don’t really have a genre and I plan to keep it that way. My music is very dreamy, romantic, energetic, and emotional.
It’s most similar to a daydream where you’re dancing and crying about life. I try to make music that makes me giddy when Iisten to it.
Covering issues like anxiety, relationships and the pressures of social media, is it safe to say this song is your most personal work to date?
Definitely. I’ve gotten a little personal before with closure and tone for me , but this one talks about things that I’m not even comfortable talking to my friends about. This song is literally about my biggest fear in my relationship which is something I don’t think I’ve ever had a conversation about outside of that session.
HOW HAS YOUR SOUND EVOLVED SINCE YOUR LAST PROJECT?
It’s all just more me. Its really hard for me to quantify how much of a certain style is in the new stuff vs. the old stuff.
TALK US THROUGH YOUR CREATIVE PROCESS..
My creative process is like 10% well thought out and 90% just doing what feels right. You can’t plan a melody, you just kinda have to do it. A lot of times I just get on the mic and I start free styling melodies and seeing where it takes us. Usually a few words come out of that that we can use as concept (or someone thought of one already) and from there I just try to relate it back to something I’m going through.
HOW OFTEN DO YOU CHANGE YOU HAIR?
It was the same style for *years* and now I change it whenever I get bored. When I was growing up I felt soooo judged by society to even try anything new. I just stayed in my lane and never looked into new stuff. Now I’m doing the research, not giving a single f*ck, playing around, and having so much fun.
