imbi the girl Joins Listen Out Lineup and Drops swell
Imbi: Thank you !! It’s honestly so surreal. I find myself just randomly getting hit with these shock-waves of gratitude and love and appreciation and pride a couple of times a day. I’m really, really excited to experience it all .
I: I bring myself, some crystals, my music and a lot of love you should expect to see me serving looks and hear me singing my little heart out in hopes of spread some wholesome vibes.
I: Yeah actually ! I’ve briefly met flexmami a coupla’ times and I got to meet Haiku Hands at Wide Open Space Festival, they were all super lovely, I’m keen to hang out again. It’s always super cool to meet fellow musicians!
I: Stay hydrated! It legit makes everything 5000 times better if your body has appropriate amounts of water in it, it’s like magic! And also take care of yourself and the people around you, come with love.
TCI: Can you talk me through your upcoming release, Swell? What was the writing and recording process like? What inspired the track?
I: The track’s about this feeling I get in my chest, it’s like this slowly building pressure but it’s not anxiety or excitement or love or resentment or any individual emotion, rather a combination of all of them ? It’s not unpleasant tho, just different. I don’t know if you can relate but the track’s message has been super relevant and helpful in my life and that’s something I wanna share in case it can help anyone else.
But yeah, one night it got so intense I had to leave the house so I took myself down to the beach and wrote out this whole song in like 45 minutes. Production was a blast with the uber-talented Hamley in Melbourne who listened to my casual direction and created a huge, beautiful beat that really ebbs and flows like the tide in my humble opinion.
I: It’s a hectic few months coming up but right before the tour I’ll (hopefully) be taking some time off gigging to focus on some writing, rest, self care and recuperation before hitting the road !
I: Every festival is so, so different. I must admit, I’m not the biggest fan of being in massive crowds but there’ve been moments of camaraderie, of genuine care and love for fellow beings that I’ve witnessed at some of these festi’s that really warm my heart, I only wish they would happen more often.
I: Can’t wait to see y’all at Listen Out! Sending ya lotsa’ love.
