Tell us about your trackNatasha is essentially about having to say goodbye to the person you love. It’s a pretty special song to me. I’ve been talking about this song since 2019 on my Instagram, and I decided to postpone it, there were delays… Within all this I kept getting messages from people asking when the song releases, which meant a lot to me. A lot of people were so interested. So when I announced the release of the song on the 1st of June, the people who support me got very excited.
Tell us your inspiration behind this trackI wrote this song about a girl I loved back in high school. My feelings were unrequited. High school was soon going to end and I knew that. The uncertainty of what comes next—will we be in the same city, what will I do without meeting her—all that is what Natasha is about. I really wanted to express the melancholy of that situation I was in. I hope people like the song, relate to it and the song really speaks to them.
How long did it take to record the track \album \EP ?So, back in 2019 when I first started producing the song, it must’ve taken, maybe six months? It was the first full fledged song I was producing, and that too a predominantly rock song. I couldn’t even record guitars at that time. That 2019 version of Natasha still exists in my storage somewhere haha. So anyways, I decided not to release the song then. Time flies, COVID happens, I become a much better producer, I buy an interface, win a microphone from Steven Slate—and I set out to produce Natasha—again, from scratch. This time I produced the song in, maybe 4 months, not more than that. I was not very consistent, I was also producing other things simultaneously. I took my time with the mixing stage, kept making subtle changes. It’s not very healthy to take so much time for mixing but it’s my first song, so I went easy on myself. All in all it must’ve taken me about a year to feel satisfied with what I’ve created. It’s a very long time, and I’m not too proud of it. It took the same amount of time for the rest of the EP, because well, I started making Natasha, simultaneously worked on these other songs, and right after those songs were finished, I said to myself—it’s done, I need to stop tweaking Natasha. The song is finished.
What is the meaning behind the lyrics?So I wanted to write this song directly addressing Natasha (the girl). The song is called Natasha, because of that. When I sing the chorus “into this song I’m writing for you,” I’m being very open about how personal this song is for me. The lyrics of the song are much like a simple story. There is barely any symbolism there, if any. So it’s rather easy to understand what the song is saying. But what the song is REALLY saying? Those nuances are left to the listener to interpret in their own way.
What brings next after this release?Well, Natasha will be released as a single. I’ll also drop The Internet as a single. Other than that a new song is ready to be released. I’m very excited about that song, I think it’s something very special. It made me super emotional on 2 different occasions while producing it haha. So yeah, will release that song soon.
