PleasePrettyLea – Ohheycide [Interview]

Describe your sound in 3 words

Iridescent, Daedalian and correlative.

Your music has an experimental tone. Should music as a form of art always challenge the listener?

Its actually never my intention to challenge the listener, I write from within and its mainly Freestyled so I guess it’s just my complexities becoming exposed. It’s amazing that the consumers of my music allow my creations to influence self-reflection. Art for me should just always be congruent. There is power in brutal honestly and sheer vulnerability.

For which lyric you are most proud of?

Psht, that’s so so hard, do you know how many lyrics I have haha! I guess one of them is at the end of Ohheycide – “No, not this time” after experiencing suicide ideation and coming out of it, it’s not the most intricate but its deep for me, you know.

Artists and people who have influenced and inspired you?

James Blake, FKA Twigs, Sevdaliza, Moses Sumney.

What would you change in the music industry?

I could go into the logistics of streaming rates, more opportunities for smaller artists etc but my heart today tells me to say, more people with honest intentions, more people that do it for the Art and not the rewards.

When not writing music, how do you spend your time?

Funny enough, writing music is a small part of my day I get about a few hours on an evening or sometimes on a weekend when I have free time which is why most of my music is written whilst I’m in the bath!
I work full time in social services, I’m a parent, I like to run and exercise so I’m busy most days!

Should we expect an album in the near future?

You can expect several x

Thank you!
