Ọlá – Back To Harmony [Interview]

Describe your sound in 3 words

Feels like home. That is the kind of music I seek to create.

Tell us a few things about your new song, ‘Back To Harmony.’ What is the main idea behind it?

I wanted to release a record I enjoyed making. On a personal level, Back To Harmony is a track where I started to understand what completeness feels like.

Do you like the idea of collaborating? Is songwriting a lonely process?

There are so many talented creatives I would love to collaborate with in the future. And I have written many songs with my sister throughout the years, so I’m no stranger to music collaboration. We’ve penned some pretty cool tunes when we created together. And solo songwriting, for me, is one of the ways I make peace with many positive and negative problems.

Favourite album of the past year?

Right now, I’m really into KEYS.

What would be your dream performance venue?

It depends on the vibe. But if I had to say, a place that holds many, yet feels intimate, a lot like the music I make now.

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

I’m an academic student researcher in my other life, so most of my time is spent on that. When I’m not researching for work or purely for leisure, I enjoy finding breathtaking scenery and other things to photograph. I also enjoy playing video games and getting in touch with my spirituality.

One last thing we should know about you?

That I am grateful for this opportunity. Thank you!

Thank you!
