You’re finally releasing your second album Sillygomania. Are you excited or will you be relieved that it will finally be out?
Right now, I’m feeling a bit afraid because of the virus. I don’t know if people are really in the mood to listen to an album, but I’m really happy to offer something new and different to my fans. I wanted to be able to show people I can do more than just ballads and sad songs. It’s still a pop album but it goes in different directions.
Not only the sound is different, but you’re also opening up a lot more in this album. Do you find it easier now to write about your personal feelings?
Nowadays, I’m just a bit more confident. Not much but just. So, it was easier for me to talk about really personal topics and feelings. In some songs, I’m talking about suicide. I’m not telling my fans that I want to kill myself, but I’m just saying that I can feel very sad in this world. I’m a huge fan of Alice in Wonderland and Peter Pan. Every day, I try to find my Wonderland or Neverland, but that can be hard to find. This world is a cruel place. Sometimes I just want to go away and live in a fairy tale forever. When you think of the word suicide, you think of an ending, but I just want to sleep and keep dreaming forever.
I don’t have any difficulties telling that in my songs because I know there are a lot of people who want to find something magical as well. I like that I can share these feelings with other people because it makes me feel human. It makes me realize that I can do this.
