Welcome to BuzzMusic, Andrea Clute, and congratulations on your latest EP, "Unsaid." The title of your debut EP "Unsaid," implies that there are emotions and messages you've struggled to express before. Can you share an instance where music provided an outlet for these 'unsaid' feelings, and how did that experience inspire your creation of the EP?


I’m a very private person when it comes to dealing with problems and emotions. I like to keep my thoughts and feelings to myself and avoid confrontation. Which I’m sure isn’t healthy, haha. However, being at the studio is where I feel comfortable expressing anything I've been holding back. Music has always been an outlet for me to be my most honest and authentic self, so creating this EP was therapeutic and led me to open up in ways I hadn’t expected. I also believe I was able to create “Unsaid” because of the people around me. My producers created a safe space for me where I never felt judged; ultimately, I think that's how the songs came to be.


"Unsaid" captures many human emotions, from elation to heartbreak. Which song on the EP best encapsulates the overarching theme of 'unsaid' sentiments, and why?


I think “But You’re Happy” is my most intimate song and, to me, ties into the theme of unsaid. This song, to me, feels like a diary entry. It contains emotions I didn't even know I had until I wrote it. But the thought of this person being happy without me didn’t sit right with me. Like how is that easy for you, I “wish you would tell me that you miss me.” It was hard for me to admit those feelings to myself, let alone say them out loud.


One could argue that the title "Unsaid" also speaks to our society's unheard voices and stories. How does your music, specifically this EP, amplify the 'unsaid' narratives in our community or the music industry?


Unsaid captures themes I haven't opened up to people about, and I've tried to contextualize them in my music. I think sharing these hard things through art is a beautiful way to allow others into my world to see what I'm going through and hopefully find comfort if they're going through similar situations.


In "Got You," a standout track from "Unsaid," there's a deep sense of longing and love. Can you discuss how this theme of enduring love contributes to the larger narrative you aimed to express in the EP "Unsaid?"


It’s never easy telling someone how you feel, negative or positive, at least for me. Depends on your love language, I guess. But I think something difficult to say aloud is admitting when you’re in the wrong, and you made a mistake. For almost all my emotions, I try to run away from them, but this song helped me say that no matter what, you’re the one I want, and I want to make things work with you. It’s hard for me to write love songs that aren’t sad. I'm not good at being romantic. I like to play things off and act like I don't care, so this song was vulnerable for me differently than the others.


Looking towards the future, how do you see the themes and messages encapsulated in "Unsaid" influencing your next projects? Are there any unsaid stories or emotions you still want to explore in your upcoming work?


I think there are always going to be new stories that arise and old stories that I hold onto that I'll want to write about. I will keep treating my music like personal diary entries, and I'm just excited to keep creating. I often just show up to the studio with no vision in mind and create how I feel that day. So I'm looking forward to gathering the team to do more of that and see what comes of it!
