Carla Kerridge – Not The One (Feat. Lobo) [Interview]

Describe your sound in 3 words

Experimental, real and personal

Tell us a few things about your new song “Not The One”. What is the main idea behind it?

I was just trying out different things with the production. Different rhythms and sounds from what I usually do. And one element after the other, It started to sound like an instrumental that could be used in a film. And I’ve started having vision of it playing on some gangsters scenes or TeleNovellas type of movie.
I never thought of writing lyrics for it, but it all happened naturally. On the same night of doing the production, I’ve burned the dinner as I was too focus on creating the track. It then inspired me to write the song based on personal experiences and feelings.

For which lyric you are most proud of?

I guess I can’t quote the whole song right? So if I really need to pick a line It will be “I’ll neglect everything that doesn’t benefit me. Your name, your time, all that you have to give.” Some people are just not bringing anything good to your life.

Favourite album of the past decade?

There is so many of them! But the one I was the most pleasantly surprised by is “Jesus Is King” by Kanye West.

What would you change in the music industry?

In a far yet close future, I would love to discover and develop new artists under my own label “Canny Kedge Records” and work on creating a new musical era.

What was the best film you have watched during the quarantine?

I’m the worse person when it comes to movies. I am so behind and there’s so many classics that I’ve never watched. But I’ve watched “The imitation game” during the quarantine and loved it so much! I love cerebral and real facts movies!

What is the most trouble you’ve ever gotten into?

I’ve never gotten in trouble with justice or the police but did a few mistakes/stupid things that could have turned out really really bad! When I was 19 years old, I went cycling all around Europe with one of my Brother, Owen. And we got stuck in the snow in winter, -20 degrees, lost in the middle of nowhere in Poland, and the night was falling. We could have died. It was really stressful! Luckily we found a farmer that helped us!

Thank you!
