ONE TO WATCH...
She’s been getting buzz for her catchy songs and candy-coloured music videos. But there’s more to her music than sunshine and rainbows...
She started making music when she was studying arts management in Chicago
“It all started after I watched a few shows by popular artists and college bands while I was there. It was quite magical to see those artists on stage, and watching those gigs inspired me to put myself out there.”
She sings about the things that make her sad
“My music can be described as electronic pop. It’s very upbeat and catchy, but if you listen to the lyrics closely, you’ll find that I’m singing about things that make me sad. I’m inspired by a range of artists, from Britney Spears to Cocteau Twins. But when I write my lyrics, I always try to write from the heart.”
Colours are an important element in her music videos
“Each of my songs is represented by a colour palette, and I like using those colours to inspire the art direction of my music videos. As a ’90s kid, those fun and fresh colours always stuck in my head, so naturally, they would find their way into the visuals I create.”
Her new song “Decide” is her darkest yet
“‘Decide’ is about dealing with loss and seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. I tapped into something even deeper for it, and worked with a very talented producer, ARNT, on it.”
If she wasn’t a singer-songwriter, she’d be…
“I’ve considered enlisting in the army or opening my own restaurant. Life’s exciting like that.”
