On her music being genreless: “I feel like music is becoming increasingly genreless. I suppose I’m considered a pop artist, but I’ve never felt like one. This album is full of stuff that I like, which is so diverse. There are elements of alternative rock in there, alt-pop, some country and definitely a lot of folk. I think anyone can find something they like hidden in one of the songs.”
On the meaning behind the album title, Sour: “I’m obsessed with the concept of awesome things in my life – like my relationship with myself and with others – progressively going sour as I get older. It’s a very visceral word, one that captures the sounds that I’m inspired by and a specific slice of my life at 17. Plus it has my initials in it, which is a bonus!”
On a TikTok video inspiring a new song: “This one girl was being really helpful and sweet, like, ‘Someday, you’re going to find a partner who’s absolutely in love and obsessed with you and is going to treat you right, and this will all be a distant memory.’ I remember being really affected by that and I wrote a lyric with that sentiment in the [Sour song] ‘Enough For You.’ So anytime someone tells you that being on TikTok isn’t productive, you can tell them that story!”
