Welcome to BuzzMusic, Lunacy. We're truly in awe of your mesmerizing and uplifting performance within your recent single, "Don't Fear the Fall." What inspired you to write a song based on falling in love and knowing when it's right to do so?
Thank you so much. When I first heard the track, I knew straight away I had lyrics in my phone that would fit perfectly that I’d written when I was falling in love with my boyfriend. I wanted to write a track that might inspire someone to just go for it, whether it's love, or a passion, a career, that’s why the title ended up being Don’t Fear The Fall, because the risk just might be worth it. When working with producer Ionei Heckenberg for "Don't Fear the Fall," what sort of vibe or sonic feel were you aiming to achieve? When Ionei originally showed me this track it felt very Ariana Grande meets Paramore so I really lent into that when writing the melody and the rest of the lyrics with Oliver. Ionei and I are always on the same wavelength so once he started to hear the general melody idea he had already adapted the production to match. Did you write "Don't Fear the Fall" with your co-writer Oliver Kindred? How does your songwriting process usually go?
We basically finish each other’s sentences! No, but really haha. Oliver helps mold the ideas and themes I want to express and knows just what to say and how to say it when I’m drawing a blank or just not very poetic. Usually, I’ll show him the lyrics I have and he will edit them and help with structure, he’s super talented and has a great ear for pop songs. How does "Don't Fear the Fall" contrast your other released singles? Would you say that you often release songs surrounding love and devotion?
The themes of my other tracks are darker, my emo side is really showing on those songs. Don’t Fear The Fall is such an upbeat high-energy song, so it’s actually pretty different. I’m the type of person to wear my heart on my sleeve and love hard so naturally most of what I write about is going to reflect that, writing from the heart is the easiest way for me to express myself. What can listeners anticipate to hear next from you?
Catchy tunes with power vocals, I’ve been watching a lot of documentaries about my favorite diva vocalists, I’m feeling inspired and ready to belt some high notes. Oliver and I have been writing so many songs that are all super catchy, super big, and will hopefully show off our songwriting chops even further!
