Sharl – Let Me Know [Interview]

Describe your sound in 3 words

Emotive, engaging, electropop!

‘Let me know’ blends future bass elements with some trap infused sounds and a pop sensibility. Tell us a few things about it. What is the main idea behind it?

The song tells the story of my frustration when dating someone who wouldn’t make their feelings clear. The lyrics are a bit tongue-in-cheek but it’s an exact description of the situation from my viewpoint!

Sound wise though, I didn’t write the song with a particular idea in mind. I work with my producer (Daniel Bohen) to decide what suits each song and portrays the emotions and mood best. We work in this way drawing together different unique elements and that’s what I love doing the most in my music rather than being confined to a particular subgenre.

What first got you into music?

I started playing instruments as a young child, which gave me a solid foundation to be able to write music and sing. With my interest in pop music, I can’t really pinpoint that to a certain thing: while growing up, I was just surrounded by it in the world around me, intertwined with pop culture, fashion and media in general. I’ve always loved pop music as a genre that’s so accesible to easily enjoy and have fun with but it also can have really deep layers and be a world of stories and emotion to escape to.

Main influences?

I don’t have conscious influences as I just write what I feel at the time. But the main music I listened to was Top 40 (primarily major female pop solo artists, 00s pop bands) and EDM so I guess those would have some influence on my writing.

What would be your dream performance venue?

Glastonbury Festival

Favorite film ever?

The Matrix

What is one message you would give to your fans?

Thank you so much for supporting me on this journey! I appreciate it every time someone takes the time to listen to my music and I hope you will keep enjoying my songs. If you like Let Me Know, be sure to check out my new single Games which was released last week – it’s a hyperpop inspired track with some cool chiptune sounds! I also just filmed the music video which is a super exciting project so keep an eye out for it!

Thank you!
