Where You Are (feat. WILLOW) – PinkPantheress
I started listening to PinkPantheress this year and fell in love with every single one of her songs. ‘Where You Are’ was a big influence on ‘contiki love song’ in terms of the production and guitar loop you hear throughout the song.
I love the way she tells a story through her songwriting so my aim was to do the same thing and tells of a real-life love story.
Sweatpants – Terror Jr
This song played on repeat when I lived in Bristol. I used to walk up the hill back home with my headphones in, over-analysing the production of the track.
Felix Snow’s production on this whole album is incredible and I really like the ping-pong ball type drum beat thrown in the chorus.
Since then I’ve been a fan of mixing and matching with different instruments and sound effects in my songs, like the techno synth in the chorus for ‘late nights in bristol’.
Sims 2 – Coco & Clair Clair
Weirdly enough, I didn’t like this song the first time I heard it. But a couple of months later it randomly popped into my head and then I found myself ending 2021 listening to their entire ‘Posh’ album.
My first EP ‘Bubblegum Street’ (released 2022) was influenced a lot by their music, and the song ‘rosebud’ even has a sneaky mention of them in the first verse. I grew up playing the Sims so the fact they sampled the track from Buy Mode was so cool!
b i g g i r l – Oh Boy feat. yergurl
This song was what influenced ‘late nights in bristol’, the second song on the EP. I’m all about sad girl pop vibes, and I wanted to make a song that could be played at 3am in a quiet bedroom.
I wrote the song about a ‘what could have been’ relationship and wanted to tap into the moody, in-my-feelings element while still keeping an uptempo rim snare beat.
My favourite part is the ending where it fades out and you hear a little giggle from me – it’s an imperfection but it’s what makes the song perfect in my eyes.
Whip – Memphis LK
I only started listening to Memphis LK more recently but her breakbeat-style drums on this track served as the inspiration for my song ‘harder’.
I wrote the song about learning to love myself after the end of my first relationship, which was the prequel to the story behind ‘dear diary’, and led to me living my best life travelling around Europe.
I think this style of production is where I want to take more of my music, so let’s see what happens!
