Safiya – Let’s Pretend [Interview]

Describe your sound in 3 words

young- caribbean and jazz

Tell us a few things about your new song. What is the story behind it?

the story behind the song is about how when a realationship was amazing at first but then your past the honeymoon phase and life hits and communication goes out the way. Sometimes we find ourselves wishing for the old days and fantasizing on how to get back to that but in the end we have to get over the past and move on . Sometimes you can try to communicate but it just makes sense to end .

For which lyric you are most proud of?

I think the first line- “let’s pretend that we’re all fools in love” is my favorite line because it’s something you here offer. It’s very Jane Austen- pride and prejudice and and just a tale that everyone is used to. We all wish we could be that fool in love cause we all love love and we just don’t know it till where in it. And as a March Pisces myself, I find myself always being told by someone of just being in a young and wishful place and free spirited. So the simple lyric brings those two stories and personalities together

What do you enjoy most? Writing music or performing your music live?

I am a live performer for life. I love the energy people bring to live performances. I like to open peoples mind to genres and cultures their not used to. And most importantly I love to see everyone having a great time being free spirits.

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

my life is surrounded by music no matter what I do so I started a subscription box business that allows people to travel through music every month from the compfort of true or home .

Should we expect an album in the near future?

hopefully the end of this year or January!

Thank you!
