Hello ScareDeCat and welcome to BuzzMusic. Congratulations on the release and success of your debut single, “MaGik.” With a creation as unique as this record, what made you decide that this was going to be your first single?
Thanks, and it was the first song I'd written down, from start to finish for this project way back in March. I was nearly not going to release this as I feel like my sound is ever-changing, but decided against it as it made sense to release my first 'true' effort for my solo project
What does, “MaGik,” mean to you on a personal level?
Let's just say, mind-altering substances.
We know that everyone’s creative process is different! When creating “MaGik,” which came first, the lyrics or the instrumentation?
The beat came first, for a good while actually. It was just something I threw up on my Instagram. As time went on I found myself humming, making melodies when I'd listen to it.
How do you enjoy working as the mastermind behind this solo project? Have you ever worked in a team setting that you can compare it to?
I've been in bands before, this is a very different experience. I think there's much more emotion in it. There's a sense of feeling that everything has been cranked up to 10 about every single aspect of your project and how you approach it and view it - whether it be stress/joy/reward etc. At the end of the day, it's only you.
What can fans anticipate next from you?
More lovely, lovely singles.
