Hypothetically, if you’d have to change your artist name to something new, what would it be and why?
That’s like the hardest question I’ve ever been asked. It took me a year to get COBRAH so that’s something. I think I would pick something that isn’t a classical name and would perhaps choose something like a thing or animal because I like the spirit of not being so stuck to being a person. It would never be Amanda, and it’s just cool to be a thing.
Anno 2021, there are more multi-disciplinary artists than ever. How have you discovered your passion for music?
I discovered that I know where I want to be in five years. So I knew that I wanted to be an artist when I was in high school. I went to songwriting schools to learn how to write songs, and afterward, I knew that I wanted to put my music out and that nobody was fully supporting it. I had to learn how to have a label and then I wanted something to wear on stage. I couldn’t afford to buy really cool gear and had to learn how to make things myself. That’s always been the case with everything because I had to teach myself about fashion and aesthetics, in general, to be able to do it myself. But also, I think the whole DIY is fun because it gives you the maximum control over what you do, and I’m all about being a control freak.
