MUNGMUNG – NASCAR [Interview]

Describe your sound in 3 words

This is such a hard one because I feel like I am always evolving, thus the art is ever-changing depending on my current mood and experiences…But let’s just say cute, energetic and melodic?

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

‘NASCAR’ is a super cheeky, bold song about having fun and not being afraid to call the shots in a physical relationship. Think about the giddy-ness one can feel when their significant other is handling the wheel of a car with confidence; They got one hand on the wheel and the other on you, backing up the car (if you know, you know) or stealing kisses at a red light. The song is a snapshot of all those butterfly-inducing moments in the car with bae.

What is the main topic of your lyrics?

The title of the song, ‘NASCAR’ is a double entendre for the term “getting nasty in the car”, so I’ma leave the rest up to your imagination to go on overdrive.

Favourite album of the past decade?

I’m really indecisive and I love everyone doing their own thing, so I’m going to break the rules a bit and list more than one. ‘Wolf’, ‘Flowerboy’ and ‘Call Me If You Get Lost’ by Tyler, the Creator, ‘blkswn’ by Smino and ‘To Pimp a Butterfly’ by Kendrick Lamar, just to name a few.

What is the biggest challenge you have faced as an artist so far?

I am thankful for the situation I am in. I am surrounded by nothing but love, support and the gracious opportunity to be creative. Although, at the moment, it’s not really a conventional ‘challenge’ as it is out of our control, but with the COVID-19 outbreaks it has been difficult to carry on with activities such as going into the studio and performing physically on stage, which is a bit of a bummer. Hopefully once things settle down, the arts industry will be as lively as ever!

In which state of mind do you imagine people might listen to your music?

They may listen when they’re excited, feeling like being a boujee baddie, turnt up or even when they’re down, bittersweet and contemplative. I’d like to think my music can ride along with everyone and be there for them throughout their different moods.

When was the last time you danced?

Literally just a few seconds ago! I’ve been going through different albums by my favourite artists lately just to really get in tune with the love for music. Today’s pick was ‘Solitude’ by Billie Holiday and it has got me groovin’ around the house.

Thank you!
