What’s been happening recently?

My business hat is on at the moment, so I haven’t been as creative lately, unfortunately.  I’ve mainly just been focusing on planning, promoting and performing.  It is hard when you’re your own boss – time management and organisational skills are key!

Your latest single ‘In Ur Net’ is out now, what influenced the sound and songwriting?

The sound of ‘In Ur Net’ is influenced by Reggaeton’s prominent influence in Pop at the moment.  I wanted to hop on the trend, so I came into the studio with a playlist of references to help guide the musical production of this song.

In terms of songwriting, I often like to contrast my vibrant, upbeat music with deeper, more introspective lyrics.  It makes the song more interesting and layered.

How did you go about writing In Ur Net?

This song is about my manic passion for someone who treated me poorly.  It’s a long story, but, basically, I became obsessed with this guy who had me locked in limbo: not really committing, but not really being uncommitted.  This drove me insane, obsessing over every detail of his life, wondering why???

I ended up writing the lyrics of ‘In Ur Net’ towards the end of this unhealthy relationship, as I was coming out of the grip it had on me.  I had finally taken off the rose-coloured glasses I was wearing and could observe my delusional experience with a fresh, outside perspective.

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

I recorded and produced this song with producer, Quinn, back in early 2021, at his studio in Alexandria, Sydney.

How did the concept for the music video come about?

I approached Desmond Hoo to direct my music video back in October 2021. I sent him the song, a Pinterest mood board, and a bunch of music video references for him to use as a jumping board and inspire a fresh concept.   He came back with a beautifully simple vision, really delving into the sentiment behind my lyrics.  Although we never actually see the opposite actor’s face in the whole music video, Des used carefully composed frames to create a very relatable storyline, where I am in a claustrophobic relationship, desperate to let go, but am unable to because I am caught in his net.

Where did you film and who did you work with?

I worked with a bunch of legends!  And we shot in the Inner West of Sydney – particularly Sydney Park in St Peters, and the coolest arcade-themed bar in Newtown, 1989.

Please tell us about any new music that’s on the way:

There is an EP on the horizon… that is all I’ll say for now!

Who are you listening to at the moment?

Rosalia’s latest album MOTOMAMI.  It is on repeat!

What do you like to do away from music?

What does that mean?… Just joking… kinda…

I like to exercise and walk dogs, besides my own.  Dogs are my happy pill – I just feel so calm and happy around them!  Also, when I actually have a moment to stop and chill out, I go to the cinema or just couch potato it and stream a trashy TV show.

What’s planned for 2022?

More releases and a regional tour!

Favourite food and place to hangout?

Fave cuisine is Japanese, fave snack is a bowl of sweet potato fries, fave dessert is gelato, and fave place to hangout is wherever there are heaps of dogs and/or cocktails and/or live music!
