Hi Gettic, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?
Answer: Thank you so much VENTS, and to answer your question: Great, thank you!
Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Sleepwalking”?
a: “Sleepwalking” was written with the fantastic artist, and human being, named Clairity, and Emma DD, who’s a fantastic songwriter in NYC. We took a very chill day at a writing camp, and wrote some time into the evening, just hanging out, really. It’s about the hazy feeling, of someone telling you “Thank you, but bye..” and coping with that loss. Think we’ve all been there…
Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?
a: We merged a few of our individual ones, we all had our stories….
Any plans to release a video for the single?
a: Oh, depends! Would love to, but under the right circumstances. We’ll see where the journey takes us.
What was it like to work with Clairity and what did she bring up to the table?
a: Clairity is one of my favourite artists I’ve worked with. Genuinely sweet, quirky and truly talented. Not really a box to put her in, and in todays world, that’s something I really appreciate.
How was the recording and writing process?
a: Relatively quick! As I said, we basically hung out, and it kind of came about by itself. We recorded the vocals on the same day too, so it’s essentially the essence of a days work, you’re listening to.
Do you tend to take a different approach when you are collaborating with someone else than when you are writing on your own?
a: Yes, and no. When there’s someone else in the room, especially an artist, who’s supposed to sing the song, it’s a more delicate thing. If they don’t feel it, it’s pointless, but it’s part of the beauty really. Trying to see the world through someone else eyes. When I write myself, it’s a very introvert experience, but one I love too. I get to be the emperor for the day!
What role does Denmark play in your music?
a: To be honest, I’d have to both say “not much” but probably also “a whole lot”. I’ve listened, and stil listen to, a very wide variety of music during the course of my life, including a lot of Danish music, and it’s an essential part of me. Wether I can pinpoint it, or not. I’m really very fortunate to have been born here.
What aspect of relationships did you get to explore on this record?
It is essentially about the breakup, so yeah, pretty much the shitty bit.
