Interview: Clinton N – your favorite song

They say the hardest part of young love is growing up. When all is said and done but you’re only left with a broke record of thoughts; Reminiscing fractions of memories about them.

Hi Clinton N, how are you today? 

Doing very well! The sun’s starting to come back here in Ireland and things are slowly opening up again, so I’m very happy and excited about that! 

How would you describe your sound? 

I’d say my sound is overall more on the slow and chill side with influences from pop, indie, lo-fi and downtempo genres

Which artists have influenced you the most over the years?

Porter Robinson, Finding Hope, kayou., shallou are a few names that come to mind.  They truly inspired me to make music and just be myself during the process

How did your latest single, ‘your favorite song’, come about?

‘your favorite song’ is a very personal song that talks about young love and its inevitable heartbreak.  When all is said and done but you’re only left with a broken record of a mind; looping and reminiscing fractions of memories

Are you planning to make it part of a larger release, such as an EP or album?

There are no current plans to make this part of an EP but you never know.  I’m in the process of working on an EP but that’ll be more instrumental centric rather than songs with vocals

The lockdown has affected everyone’s plans right now. What are you doing to stay productive throughout it and are you still able to work on new music?

I keep trying to work on small and short loops to keep my motivation and inspiration going.  But there are days where I just don’t feel inspired at all to make any music and that’s okay.  I think it’s important to not be too hard on ourselves and give ourselves a break from time to time.  I just finished my master’s degree so hopefully I’ll have more time to make music from here on out! 

What advice would you give other artists who are trying to stay productive during this crisis?

As mentioned above, definitely give yourself some room to breathe.  If you open up your DAW or walk into your studio every time with the intention of making amazing music then the pressure will be too much for anything to be productive.  Make silly loops and don’t forget to have fun while making music is pretty important too. 

Anything you would like to add?

Just want to give David a huge thanks for featuring my song.  I really hope you guys enjoy it and can fully relate to the emotion and story behind this single.
