We loved "Take That Back." what an empowering release! What was the inspiration behind this release? Could you take us through your creative process for it?
Thank you so much for having me! I am happy that you all enjoyed it! Anyone who hears the song will automatically assume that it is a break-up song, and that is what I intended for it to be. The inspiration behind it was based on experiences I had in the past. The haters, bullies, cruel kids at school, and predators that didn't care about consent and dealing with all that motivated me to write the lyrics back in high school.
Songs can have different meanings and interpretations. So, for some reason, it was easier for me to send a message to whoever took advantage of me through a heartbreak song. The ex-love interest I am confronting in the music represents the toxic relationships that the mean-spirited individuals and narcissistic abusers had with me in the past.
What was your favorite part of bringing the vision for the music video to life?
My favorite part of bringing the vision to life was the support I had on set from my team! They would remind me what the song's message was about and encouraged me to express that in the best way I possibly could in the cold winter of NYC!
Who would your dream collaboration be, and why?
This is a really tough question for me because there are so many amazing bands and artists I would die to collaborate with. I have several dream collaborations in mind, and choosing only one is extremely difficult, but I will go with WILLOW. I like her style; I love what she is doing with her sound. Her stage presence and guitar playing are all so mesmerizing! Plus, I sang a couple of her songs during sound check at one of my shows, and the crowd loved it, so why not a WILLOW and Kanti Chant collab?
What do you want your listeners to feel when they hear your music?
I need listeners to feel they are seen, heard, and not alone. Luckily, people tell me that my music affects them, resonates with them, or even gets them through a hard time. That is all I could ask for; it's my primary purpose for doing what I do... If it means I am helping people, I am all about it!
What's next for Kanti Chant? Can we expect to hear more new music soon, and is there anything you want to say to your fans?
Next for Kanti Chant, we have some new releases in the making, some collaborations with other artists, and some live shows coming up! You can expect to experience my music and art on a new level soon! I believe I am constantly evolving, growing, and improving my craft. It is all fascinating!
The thing I am most excited to share that I am looking forward to are the new songs I have created, where I produced the instrumentals all by myself! I've always wanted to be my producer, and I'm proud of myself for finally learning to do it and finding what works for me. I cannot wait to share it with my fans, and I would like them to know that the feeling is mutual. I am entirely fangirling right back at them because they are the best!
My fans showing interest in all my hard work is everything to me! Not only is it important to me because it brings me validation, all while making me feel such a great sense of connection... but also because it does that same thing for my fans! It causes them to feel valid and connected, too! It is an equal exchange of energy where we can lift each other, which is pretty cool.
