We know you are from Adelaide but where in the world are you currently based?

I have been based in a suitcase for the past 6 years! But since the pandemic, i have applied for a visa in The UK and now my main two baes are Adelaide and London. But, I am always travelling.

What’s been happening on your recent trip to Australia?

Lots of music!! I am always in the studio working but this time as well i spent alot of time in Adelaide seeing family. It was the first time in a long time and it was just amazing to get to slow down and just see everyone again.

How did the success of Fake Friends with PS1 in the UK make you feel?

I have worked really hard for a long time, and i wrote Fake Friends a long time ago so for the song to finally get reconigsed and then released and be successful felt great. It was a real validation that I am doing a good job! Haha!

Your latest single ‘Need Your Love’ is out now, describe your sound

 I make piano house dance bangers! And i love it! That has been the consistency with my last 3 songs and i love making up beat music that people can dance too!

What’s the concept behind the song?

 I wrote Need Your Love at the start of 2020 it was my first zoom session and I had just recently been separated from my boyfriend who was in Americ and I wasnt sure when I was going to be able to see him again.

Where and when did you record/produce/master and who with?

I started off by writing the record with Jonasu who was in Berlin and Yoshi Breen who was in Amsterdam. I recorded the vocals myself and then Joansu did the production. Then I recut the vocals with my friend Israel Amoy in Adelaide and sent them then to Majestic who then finished off the production and made it the tune it is today!

How did you approach the recording process?

It was a funny situation actually because we were all separated it wasnt like a normal session.

I recorded the vocals in my bedroom and that beginning it was all difficult because normally you would just change things on the spot, but we have time differences and geographical issues! So everything worked a little slower. Then when majestic got the track it was a little easier because we were both on the same time zone. So we were able to just go back and fourth on production ideas.

Who are you listening to at the moment?

I listen to a lot of new music! I am loving the new Kendrick Lamar music. I recently was put on to Alexis Ffrench who is amazing the music he makes is my night time zen music. I just love Tove Lo, Mø, Raye, Becky Hill, Anne Marie, Fred Again, Jax Jones and so many other artists!

What do you like to do away from music?

Im a massive foodie! So i am always looking for new restaurants and hiking! When I am back home in Adelaide i do a morning hike every morning Monday through to Friday and i love it! Gotta get my steps in.

What’s planned for the remainder of 2022?  Will we see you back in Australia?

 1000% will be back in Australia! Hopefully doing some live performances!! And lots of new music coming this year!

Favourite food and place to hang out in London?

Dishoom is my go to place to take people who come to London! Its amazing and on the weekends if im not walking around one of the many parks you will find me in The Science Museum.
