A warm welcome to BuzzMusic Joyeur, and congratulations on your latest release, "Destroyer." What's the inspiration behind this song?
"Destroyer" is so close to my heart, stemming from a bad night where I got paranoid, jealous, reckless, and insecure. It's about feeling broken, like a bull in a china shop within a relationship--like everything I touch, I destroy. Writing this song was taking a hard look in the mirror, forgiving myself, and finding levity and love instead of shame.
What was the most challenging aspect of creating this song?
This song felt like a gushing wound. It was flowing out of me and healing all at once. It was the last song I wrote for the album and probably the easiest to materialize because of its pure source. Production-wise, Anna (the producer behind Joyeur) and I wanted to keep it pretty bare, which always presents challenges in keeping it engaging, yet minimal!
What impact do you want “Destroyer” to have on your listeners?
I want resonance. I want someone to listen and feel that I helped put words to their experience. Songs can have such power and healing in that way.
Is there anything that listeners should prepare to hear from you in the near future?
Yes! We're releasing a "How to Love Yourself and Not Destroy Yourself" remix EP this fall, and I've got some collaborations coming too!
What’s next for you?
I'm currently planning my first west coast (USA) tour! Hoping to meet more and more folks on the road this year. I'm craving that expansion!
