Ever since she popped up on the scene in 2020, Mangaluru/Bengaluru singer-songwriter Frizzell D’Souza has made barely an impression with her cushy, acoustic-leaning music. With a bunch of singles below her belt, the musician is now out with her five-discover debut EP The Hills Know Of You.
On this interview with Rolling Stone India¸ D’Souza talks to us relating to the brand new EP, working with producer Varun Murali, her future plans and extra.
When did The Hills Know Of You launch to take shape?
Even supposing four out of the five songs were written in 2021 and early 2022, the EP most consuming started taking shape in Also can of this year owing to my pretty anxious architectural thesis [this] semester. The tracks were within the foundation written with their very beget particular particular person backstories and had no association with every a total lot of. The arrangement of discovering the nice looking producer and visible artist regarded love basically the most time-ingesting activity, but once these hurdles were crossed, the arrangement used to be barely fun.
What are you able to teach me relating to the songs on the document?
My EP, The Hills Know Of You, is a chunk of music surrounding the root of a conventional tale of fancy, but is furthermore an ode to the thousand programs this straightforward yarn can manifest. Nonetheless the final habitual theme is the inside relationship you bear got along with your self – the ability you fancy and are cherished, the ability to salvage your self up out of a broken house and study to fancy your self again. I salvage myself writing basically the most about lived experiences. Consequently, the tales and experiences written in this EP range from extraordinarily personal journal entries to conversations between shut pals, to inside monologues that found their ability into this piece of music.
As all artists inherently fancy to total, I wished this document to sonically replicate the feelings written about within the songs. The complications, on the replacement hand, come up when one takes a deeper investigate cross-take a look at and realizes that steadily, even the apparently easy emotions are icebergs whose depths are generally hidden away. “Perchance The next day,” discover three, is one such song that used to be sonically crafted in a mode the set the pretty dim lyricism is layered below a foot-tapping groove, drawing parallels with an inclination to cloak our emotions with sunshine disguises.
Where did you document it and what used to be the arrangement of putting the EP collectively love?
The EP used to be recorded at The Crimson Song Field Studio in Bengaluru. Working with Varun Murali, the producer, used to be nothing fast of basically the most fun and satisfying studio abilities I’ve ever had. He approached the arrangement with utmost care and consideration for every layer of every tale within the motivate of every of the songs, which used to be what mattered basically the most to me.
Inserting the total mission collectively took a factual quantity of ideation and planning, and I used to be lucky to work with The Urban Weaver [originally an artist collective and now my management] to bring this mission to fruition.
What plans pause or no longer it’s a must must promote the EP?
The EP used to be launched along with educated visualizers for every of the songs with the goal of boosting the tracks. Conceptualized, shot and edited by Mangalorean photographer/videographer Prathviraj Shastry, the flicks emulate the tales within the motivate of the tracks whereas concurrently chronicling the EP. I’m furthermore hoping to do the songs to audiences and curate abilities reveals in a total lot of cities across the country, finally.
I originate no longer bear any get plans for the prolonged rush and would like to switch the set the boulevard takes me, both within the in discovering self-discipline and the music exchange. Within the interim, I’m taking a investigate cross-take a look at to grow as a songwriter, and originate music with musicians I love.
