Hey! Yeah I’ve been great! Just constantly working on music at the moment haha.
Can you talk to us more about your latest single “I Don’t Know Why I Fall In Love”?
Well, it’s the 3rd instalment of a few singles I dropped this year. I was kind of testing the waters of my sound mainly, and slowly getting people into the groove of my music. I feel like each track so far, even though quite unique to me, has had its own flavour and none of them have repeated themselves. This last single is just another flavour of what I made in the realms of my taste and style I guess. I Don’t Know Why I Fall In Love is definitely a change of pace from the previous two singles, which is refreshing as it breaks away from the intensity in the other two.
Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?
Yeah, it was written about a past relationship I had, and how even though I’m still infatuated by her, I’m also annoyed that I’m still stuck in heartbreak. FYI, this song was written closer to the time of this relationship ending so it was more of a wound then, than it is now, but the fact still remains that I went through that and this song is a reminder of that feeling of how I was still blissfully in love, yet absolutely distraught and frustrated that I couldn’t act on it anymore.
Any plans to release a video for the single?
Haha no, not for any of the singles currently out! But keep your eyes peeled because some big things are in the works for 2019!
How was the recording and writing process?
It was quite sporadic and random to be honest. I had this song for a while before I decided to release it. And the funny thing is, I actually wrote this as a song before starting any sort of recording for it. So at its core, it’s a song. And all of the elements that lead up to the finished product were spaced out quite vastly from May 2018 till, I guess around now. The song was definitely written way before summer had ended, but I just had to make a deduction on the production style and arrangement choices I wanted for this track, which took a lot more time.
What role does London play in your music?
It plays a massive role. I don’t think I’d make the kind of music I make, or even push myself to be this creative with the production choices I make if it wasn’t for the fact that this city embeds a certain ambition and inspiration on to me.
What is it about the 90s that you find so fascinating?
I dunno to be honest hahaha. I love all decades of music really and truly. Like every decade has a certain sonic quality that is unique to its time. But my biggest fascination with the 90s is the fashion I’d say. Purely because of the revival of 90s style clothes in today’s culture that has been revamped into this futuristic and archaic style.
How’s your new EP coming along?
Well it’s definitely coming along hahaha. I’d say I’ve for sure got two songs finished and ready. This EP will for sure be a new stage in the sound of ONUR.
Any tentative release date or title in mind?
The release date is a secret, but I can definitely tell you it’ll be on the former side of 2019. In terms of titles for this EP, well I’ve definitely been sitting on a couple of themes and ideas, but I honestly want there to be a line of consistency from the songs I have out now, and the songs I’ll be releasing next year! In terms of music, artwork and image. I’m a strong believer in showing progression rather than outright re-inventing the vision.
Any plans to hit the road?
Yes! Next year for sure! I’ve got a cheeky band together now and we’re just working on the tracks and seeing how we’re gonna be able to incorporate live elements to the electronic-ness of it all haha.
What else is happening next in ONUR’s world?
Well my job is my hobby and my hobby is my job. I’m just gonna keep doing what I’m doing and keep pushing my sound.
