We highly appreciate the honest and relatable concept of your latest single, "POISON." At what moment did you feel inspired to release your emotions via song and create this genuine single?
I wrote this single over a year ago in my bedroom after being inspired by a few things. For one, I was inspired by toxicity in relationships that I've experienced, and those around me have experienced. I was also inspired by DC's Poison Ivy and how she can mentally and physically control plants and those around her. This song, at its core, is about how one person can brainwash another and sometimes without even realizing it.
Was it challenging to write your honest and vulnerable lyrical content for "POISON"? Or was it easy to put your emotions onto paper?
It was challenging at first, but once I started to play with the metaphors and references in the song, the lyrics began to come naturally. The most challenging part for me was creating a storyline that wasn't obvious but clear enough to be interpreted in various ways by listeners.
Could you walk us through how the music video for "POISON" tells a symbolic story of toxic love?
My main inspiration for the music video was DC's, Poison Ivy. In the video, I referenced parts of her storyline with ivy, her deadly touch, and the lab scene in hopes of conveying a message about toxicity in relationships, specifically manipulation and brainwashing.
What inspired you to break free from genre norms and explore the realms of pop, rock, r&b, and pop-punk? Do you feel that being adventurous and explorative with your music is more enjoyable?
Growing up, I listened to many different genres of music, so it only feels right to explore genres with my music. Experimenting with different sounds and energies makes the process much more enjoyable and free. I don't want to box myself in, especially as a new artist.
