Welcome to BuzzMusic OverFlow! What initially inspired you to pursue music and why?
To get my message out to the world. For much of my own life, I’ve been silent and have taken a very passive approach to everything. Rapping and producing has allowed me to take a more active role in my own life and I’ve been able to tell people my own views on things rather than just listen to them ramble on. Pursuing music has allowed me to live life as a more authentic self.
Tell us about your single “Bad Mood”? What was the main theme you had surrounding this track?
When I make music, I want to be either challenging a topic or expressing a specific emotion. As humans, we can all tap into our own sense of humanity and the feelings that come along with it. This time around, I wanted to embody the feeling of being in a bad mood (Hence the title of the song). I wanted it to be a song everyone can relate to, regardless of who you are.
How would you describe your songwriting approach to “Bad Mood”?
I have to be in the correct mental space for me to write on something, especially if it’s about emotion. I will not write if I’m not because then I know that it’s not coming from a genuine place. When someone hears my music, I want them to go, “That’s exactly how I feel”. So when it comes to writing the lyrics, I make sure my mind is where it needs to be and then just go. I’ve been writing for a while now so it’s pretty easy to crank out an idea once I have the foundations. For this song imparticular, I wanted it to have a slightly grimy feel.
Did you stumble upon any challenges when creating “Bad Mood”? Mind explaining?
Since I do all of the production, I think making the beat was the most challenging thing to do. The lyrics came to me almost immediately. I sent the beat to my friends so many times trying to perfect the arrangement. You can have bars for days but if the arrangement of the track itself is lackluster, no one will want to hear it. So, adding parts like pre-chorus and an intro and making the song flow without slapping on a riser and calling it a day. I’m really happy with the reception of the song too. My style is extremely eclectic and I make whatever I feel like making and this beat comes from my ‘weird’ folder so this is a win!
What’s next for you Overflow?
I’m planning on releasing a music video next month and dropping a single every 4.5 weeks to keep people on their toes. I got bangers in the reserve and I can’t wait to show you all what I have in store. I’m not even going to say 2020 is my year. I’ll just let everyone watch as it unfolds.
