Welcome to BuzzMusic, Cloverchild! Congratulations on the release of "Better Days." Could you please shine a light on the inspiration behind such thought-provoking lyrics?
Thank you for listening! The inspiration comes from my inclination for nostalgia. I always seem to romanticize the past. This song shines a light on the desire that I think we all have to look at the past through rose-colored glasses.
Has "Better Days" given you the closure you were looking for?
I think a big part of my intention for the song is to say that there will always be better days. While I might be longing for days when I was younger, in 10 years, I might be thinking the same thing about today. So, I wouldn't say closure but more acceptance and appreciation for the time we have now.
Do you happen to have a favorite lyric in this song? Why?
“At the maze's end, the same old place again” - With life, sometimes it feels like you are going through a maze of meaning and understanding. For me, I get to a point where I think I am at the “end” and there is always more maze, more to understand and learn about yourself and the world.
What would you want it to be if your audience were to learn something about you that they may not know?
A major passion of mine is listening to, learning, and recreating different music genres. I have been doing production for over 10 years and try to constantly learn and grow musical knowledge. The music I release is often a culmination of the variety of influences I take in. If anyone has recommendations, I am open to listening!
What's next for you?
At the beginning of the year, I decided I would finish a song once a month. So far so good! I intend to continue to push music out on that schedule including a 5 track EP over the summer. I have been working on a live performance for the past year. I hope I can showcase that soon! Overall, I am still experimenting, trying out new things, and having fun with it.
