1. Hi Almond, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?
Hi I’m doing pretty well with all things considered. I’ve been spending a lot of time creating, journaling, and pole dancing.
2. Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Bandana”?
“Bandana” was like a cute way to be a little bit shady towards an ex who ended up dating someone who resembled me. It’s fun and has a lot of confident energy to it. It also has an Usher sample from “U Remind Me,” which is one of my favorite songs of his!
3. Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?
We were just vibing to the beat in the studio and trying to figure out what it felt like, which is how the idea of “Bandana” came about. Because it definitely sounds like confidence with maybe a little tiny bit of cockiness.
4. Any plans to release a video for the track?
I definitely want to do a video for “Bandana” since it’s such a fun song, but I’m not too sure what it would be but it feels like summer vibes to me. So we’ll have to see!
5. How was the recording and writing process for the EP?
It was very natural and easy flowing. We didn’t intend to really make an EP, but I was out in LA so I booked a ton of studio time and all the sessions ended up being amazing. By the end of the trip I realized I had an EP.
6. What role does Philly play in your music?
When I think about Philly, there’s a carefree attitude. People definitely aim to be authentic and creative and are not afraid to stand out. I think some of that reflects with my music and just who I am as a person.
7. With your music gaining popularity – does that put any pressure on you as you work on a new material or rather the opposite?
It kind of puts pressure on me but only in a positive way. It gives me the drive to want to continue to grow and develop as an artist. I feel like I tend to thrive under pressure.
8. How are you feeling now that your debut EP is out now? What’s the overall feeling that you’d use to describe the project?
I’m just so grateful that people have received my music well and that people enjoy it. It feels surreal to think that ideas can transfer from my brain and body to a physical song to then be enjoyed by others. I think the main feeling is just having fun and being playful.
10. Any plans to hit the road? What’s next for you?
As of now I’m just rolling the dice everyday and allowing what’s meant to happen to happen. It’s hard to plan anything around coronavirus so I’m just seeing what happens because health is most important. But I can’t wait to keep creating.
11. What else is happening next in Almondmilkhunni’s world?
I’ll be releasing plenty of singles after the EP and I would love to begin working on an album this summer!
