Hi VENTS magazine! I’ve been doing very well, thanks. This year couldn’t have started any better and I’m very excited about my new single release.
Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Sins”?
Absolutely! ‘Sins’ is a testament to the power of lust. In a few words – It’s a fun love song. We’ve all been there. When being with someone just feels so good that you’ll become a sinner without thinking twice.
Did any event in particular inspired you to write this song?
I wrote ‘Sins’ last summer in June. The song is about going crazy for someone you really like, doing silly things and making mistakes that feel good without any regrets.
Any plans to release a video for the single?
Music video – coming soon 🙂
How was the recording and writing process?
I had my first studio session in London with Mafro and we were just writing ideas and jamming. I came up with the vocal melody first, the lyrics followed afterwards and it was easy and fast to write. It felt genuine and real because I was just writing about how I felt at that time and it’s probably one of my favorite songs that I’ve written so far.
How Jorja Smith and Dua Lipa has influence your writing?
I get inspiration from many new, old and upcoming artists. Jorja Smith has that charming personality, smooth vocals and streetwise lyrics while Dua Lipa’s refreshing storytelling and smoky, sultry voice is what I enjoy. My music is a mix of Pop and RnB sounds and I’m working on my own unique contemporary sound while enjoying a variety of other music creator’s art.
Does the new single mean we can expect a new material – how’s that coming along?
Last year has been great in terms of creativity and writing a lot of new music. This year, I’m focusing on getting this music heard and sharing it with the world.
Will you keep diving into the themes of love?
For sure! That’s one of the strongest emotions and it certainly influences a lot of my songwriting. I don’t think there can ever be enough of those <3 songs.
Any plans to hit the road?
Not at the moment but I’m excited to see what the future holds.
What else is happening next in ELIZZA’s world?
I’m busy writing more new songs and working on visuals for ‘Sins’.
Also, you can hear me singing live every Wednesday at Mahiki Mayfair.
