2018 just started and we were wondering if you will be releasing a new album soon 🙂 ?
How do you usually write the lyrics of your songs?
I fling myself at the music.
I throw every cell of my being, every memory and every emotion into a pool of thoughts and then I drag words out of that pool.
What was the soundtrack to your childhood?
I listened to a lot of new age stuff when I was a kid. And a lot of soundtracks.
I loved fantasy books and movies, so the lord of the rings soundtrack and stuff like that. Also quite a lot of classical music.
Listening to modern stuff came quite late for me.
Is music something that runs in your family, or were you the first to venture into the industry?
I am the first in my family to become a professional musician, but I come from a very creative family.
There was always playing, drawing or dancing in my home.
My sister is a quantum scientist now, and I feel like her work is as creative as mine.
How did you first get your foot into the industry?
Hahaha, I don’t like thinking of it as “getting my foot in an industry”. It was about the music. I started creating and figuring out what kind of artist I was. All the business/industry stuff came later.
What has the journey been like up to now?
The journey is my life and my life is the journey…. and my life has been pretty insane so far.
I’ve met so many insanely interesting people. I’ve been in so many mind blowing situations. I sometimes feel like it’s to crazy to be real.
The movies aren’t lying.
What inspired helium high?
Helium high is inspired by my complex thoughts and feelings about sexuality and feminism.
What is the best verse you ever wrote?
Hmmm. This is a good question! Nobody never asked me that before!
I think I’d go for the second verse in “missed out on disco” that I wrote for the Lydmor & Bon Homme album.
“You were an amazing lover
But your love was like the rain
It trickled ever so softly
Just to disappear again”
And the one of your favorite song (not written by you)?
Oh there are so many. On the top of my head, I’ll go for this part of Tom Waits “Alice”. I’m never sure if he sings Ice or eyes In the end, and I think it’s brilliant because they both fit.
“And I must be insane
To go skating on your name
And by chasing it twice
I feel through the ice(or eyes?)
(RYL : ice 🙂 )
Are you ever scared of revealing, quite vulnerable aspects of your experience, to strangers through your music?
Nope. Not the slightest.
I can’t even tell you why, it just never occurred to me to be scared of that.
