Hello Syd! How has lockdown been treating you?
Hello! Thanks for chatting with me! Lockdown has been a journey to say the least. Firstly it felt like summer time camp and was fairly enjoyable after which shit began to get grim. My vitality has been everywhere recently however I’m so fortunate I can nonetheless make and launch music to have one thing to sit up for.

Inform us what you’ve realized throughout this time (virtually or emotionally)?
Virtually – make my mattress each morning so I don’t keep in all of it day, get exterior at the least as soon as a day, recognise after I want alone time, and get out of sweats by 11am. Emotionally – journal on a regular basis, breathe, be affected person with myself, it’s alright to be actually unhappy however do issues to assist myself get out of the outlet.

Congratulations in your new observe “good good” – it’s about letting go of poisonous relationships – was it about anyone state of affairs particularly?
Thanks I’m so excited for this one to be out. I gained’t share an excessive amount of as a result of I need to depart it as much as the listener to interpret. I closely imagine that when a tune is launched it’s not mine. However I’ll say it’s not a couple of romantic relationship – extra so only a typically poisonous relationship that lagged and wanted to be let go. It’s a very widespread trauma response to reconnect with an individual or occasion that harm you to strive to return and alter the ending and make it extra optimistic. Good good is about resisting that urge.

Was it written throughout lockdown? And in that case, how was the songwriting course of with the isolation? Did it assist or hinder?

I used to be so used to collaborating each day earlier than quarantine so it’s kinda cool now to strip all of it again and simply write me and my guitar. Bringing songs again to the foundation and creating one thing utterly alone from scratch is sort of a rebirth.

Why the title “good good”?
Within the hook it says “you say we’d like goodbye”, so initially I believed that’d be the title. “good good” appeared extra mysterious and common. Each time I’m in search of new music, I’m at all times inclined to click on on the tracks which have an inexplicable title so I can discover that means in it by myself.

Do you will have a favorite lyric within the observe?
Within the first verse I say “yeah you took it with my time, I informed you child I’m not your mommy”. It truly makes me snigger however it’s actual shit. I’ve very maternal tendencies, as I’m certain most girls do by nature, however a lot in order that I usually overlook to handle myself.

What do you hope listeners will take away from the observe?
You understand while you preserve letting somebody in who fucks you up? However you suppose it’ll magically go away and get higher..this tune helped me come to phrases with understanding that I’ve been someplace earlier than too many instances and eventually strolling away. Even when no motion is taken, perhaps somebody can relate and really feel courageous after they hear the beat.

How do you are feeling like this can be a transfer on and development out of your observe “Lights On”?
They’re associated to totally different relationships, however you possibly can sorta inform I used to be simply coming into my very own on understanding its okay to depart issues behind that aren’t proper. “Good good” is extra me coming to phrases with the precise leaving a part of that. There’s a whole lot of love, however you may not be appropriate with a few of it. This one is extra grown for my part.

Any new or uncommon inspirations on your sonic craft?
Vogue and movie are at all times inspirations for me. However nature particularly has been fuelling me recently. I assume I by no means actually had time to understand it earlier than. I grew up in California and solely simply now am realising what number of locations are lower than an hour drive away that really feel such as you’re in a special nation.

What’s subsequent for you in 2020? What are you enthusiastic about?
I imply I’m guessing I’ll be inside for the remainder of the yr… however I’m actually excited to get into mission mode. I’ve had a lot time to suppose and curate concepts in isolation.
