INTERVIEW: Rebecca Lou

Hi folks, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?

Hi VENTS. Great meeting you – pretty cool stuff you guy’s got going on. Thanx for having me !

Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Under The Moon”?

It’s a song that shows a more melodic and dark side of Rebecca Lou. It has a gloomy feel and a more dynamic approach to songwriting. I was very inspired by the teenage in-love feeling, like you would die for someone and the world you know is changed forever. That emotional love that just swallows you entirely.

Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?

When I wrote the song I was listening a lot to Chelsea Wolfe at the time and writing some really gloomy shit. I guess I naturally just kinda tapped in to this particular feeling that I recognised from my teens, and startet to find some of my old poetry that I wrote years ago. The backbone of the song was made at that point.It has this witchy feel, I really like it.

Any plans to release a video for the single?

Not at this point, no. Maybe some time later, If i get the opportunity ! Right now I’m still a broke struggeling artist 😉

How was the recording and writing process?

We recorded the song in december at Ballade Studios at Nørrebro in Copenhagen. It started out as the first song I tried out recording vocals for, but ended up being the last song recorded and I did the verse vocals in about 15 minutes. Recording wise, the song was tricky. Some of the other songs are very driven by attitude and stuff, but this was different.It needed finesse and depth, without compromise. The song wants what it wants and I like that about it.I think It turned out as one of my favorit songs of the EP.

What made you want to seek for a new direction?

I have an EP in the works, which will have a release date very soon hopefully !

Does your new single mean we can expect a new album – how’s that coming along?

The EP is in the works, which will have a release date very soon hopefully ! The artwork is made, the vinyl is sent to press, so any day now I’ll be releasing som info on the release.

Any tentative release date or title in mind?

Not yet! Very soon. Keep posted on my social media accounts for info on that.

Any plans to hit the road?

I’m currently planning a tour in Denmark this fall and I really wanna tour in Germany and Europe as well.

What else is happening next in Rebecca Lou’s world?

I’m preparing for SPOT Festival, which is the next big thing coming up ! I might also have a release date for my upcoming EP very soon. Cant wait !
