Welcome to BuzzMusic Sanjeev, and congratulations on the release of your haunting sophomore single, "Leave You Lonely." Where did the inspiration for this passionate piece come about?

Thank you very much. The inspiration for this song was derived from my experiences with past connections, which in most cases harbored emotions of unrequited feelings. In this case, “Leave You Lonely,” transcribes the unrequited feelings of both individuals in a connection, who are evenly reluctant to take a leap of faith.

Why did you choose to create this haunting, saddened, and gentle sonic atmosphere for "Leave You Lonely?” How did you channel the stylings of Lana Del Rey when formulating the sonics and instrumentation?

When it comes to recording original pieces, I prefer to create songs that are like the kind of music I listen to on a frequent basis, and I really enjoy Lana’s discography. At the time, I had a habit of daydreaming about past connections and fixating on things I had no control over. I think the stripped-back, minimal instrumental and melodic harmonies work together to mimic a dream-like ambiance.

How long was this single in the making? Did you find yourself going back to fine-tune and rework "Leave You Lonely?”

Leave You Lonely was written in December 2020, but I really took my time recording it. Initially, I thought it was completed and ready to be released in February or March 2021. However, I revisited this piece and re-recorded certain areas that I thought needed polishing.

Seeing that "Leave You Lonely" is your first original release, how does the song help listeners get a better understanding of the music and vibe you aim to create?

Even though this is my first original release, I really think this piece represents only a fraction of what I am aiming to create. I believe I will record more dream-pop songs like “Leave You Lonely,” however I am also inspired by other sounds such as hip-hop & jazz, alternative rock, music from the ’70s-’90s, and pop music from the early 2000s. Listeners can expect sounds that continue to transcribe their own thoughts and feelings. Whether it be a cover or an original piece, the type of vibe my pieces convey would correlate to my mood at the time it was recorded.
