Welcome back to BuzzMusic, Stilla. We're head over heels for the cathartic yet upbeat feel of your latest single, "Won't Work Out." What moments and experiences inspired this new release?
A range of experiences inspired ‘Won’t Work Out’. In the past couple of years, I have experienced a lot of change, part of that change has been realizing certain relationships won’t work out. The song addresses romantic relationships, that turn ‘toxic’ and no longer serve a purpose in making you happy. Whilst this can be a sad realization, I was in a great place in my life when I wrote this song and was able to embrace these experiences, put them into my art and remain positive.
Seeing as your lyrics in "Won't Work Out" are rather emotional and vulnerable, why did you choose to create such an upbeat and vibrant sonic landscape to support your message?
I was inspired by other songs in which the songwriters embraced the juxtaposition between emotional lyrics and up-tempo, multi-instrumental production. It was also the best reflection of my feelings because I was more in a moving-on mindset than a melancholy one, so I wanted to tell the story whilst staying true to this. I had so much fun creating this song with a bunch of live musicians and will always try to bring them in on the production of my songs where appropriate.
Speaking of your lyrics for "Won't Work Out," was it easy for you to write such honest and relatable words of realizing that some relationships aren't meant to happen?
I think I felt particularly comfortable sharing my experience through the lyrics in this song because of how relatable the message is. Most people have experienced some form of a relationship not working out, and of course, many songs have explored the subject before. However, in this song, I just wanted to be brutally honest about the reality of the situation, in other words, that it ‘Won’t Work Out’. I have really appreciated the response from various people saying the lyrics also to reflect on their own situation.
If there's one thing you want listeners to know about you and what you aim to do with your music, what would that be?
I want my listeners to know that I put everything into my music. No matter what life throws at me, music and writing songs will always be a constant. I aim to keep progressing with my listeners by my side, growing with me and learning about me through my music. I’d love to connect with more of them through my social media, where I am able to show more about the role music plays in my everyday life.
What's next for you?
My next single is on the way, a song I wrote entailing another personal experience that I am eager to share with my audience. In 2022, I plan to give my listeners a greater insight into who I am as an artist, with a lot more original music on the way.
