Just a few weeks ago, everybody shared their Spotify Wrapped. Who was on your list last year and how do these artists influence you?
I don’t listen to music via Spotify, but use Apple Music. I’m literally the only person in my group of friends who doesn’t have Spotify. Apple Music also has a recap, but it’s more a playlist with the songs you listened to the most. There was a lot of Radiohead in the playlist, but I knew that would happen. Besides that, I listened a lot to Coldplay and Haim. Clairo’s last album Sling was also amazing. I think these artists influence me because I like music that is well produced but also feels raw. I think emotions come across more when it’s not too perfect. These artists do that really well.
If you could wrap up your own year, what would you consider your most special moment of the year?
A couple of weekends ago, I played two shows with Charles at the Botanique in Brussels. I have worked with her before, and she asked me to open both nights. It was not my first show, but it was the first time we played in such a setting. The crowd was, especially the first night, very close, and it felt awesome. Also to be doing this with my friends—because Charles and I are very close—was such a great experience. We were together the whole day, even during the soundcheck because I was listening to her. Charles and her team are amazing.
