What genre would you describe yourself as?
Indie pop/ Dream Pop
Who would you say is your main inspiration?
We're inspired by artists such as David Bowie, Vanessa Paradis, Kate Bush, Blondie, and Jane Birkin.
What is your songwriting process (which bits come first?)
The verses usually come first, and then I’ll work on the melody. After fleshing out the concept and story arc of the song or album, Peace and I start working on the track. We approach song writing as we would a movie score.
What made you want to start in music?
I’m a fashion designer and as I was getting ready for my first runway show, we were running out of time to get the license for the song I wanted to use in my fashion film that was going to screen before the show. My director introduced me to Peace and to my surprise, he and I shared a love for 70s French pop. We worked on an original song and ever since then we kept on collaborating on music for my fashion collections. This is how I fell in love with song writing!
What is on the horizon for you?
I’m working on my new album! Its scheduled to release later this year.
Who would you most like to collaborate with?
What is your ultimate goal?
I want to keep building my brand around fashion and music to create an immersive experience for my audience. I try to create an escapism with my projects that let people get lost in their fantasies.
If you could cover any song, what would it be?
Tea making: milk first or last?
