Interview: "Believe" - jolle
I can’t get enough of your new single, “Believe”! It has been on repeat since I first listened. Can you share what inspired you to write this track and a bit about the songwriting process?
jolle: It's about my dad who got into alcohol addiction when I was younger, I realized I’ve been dealing with this situation ever since and had to write about it to get peace with how I am supposed to handle the situation. My best friend Benjamin Asare helped me talk about it and rewrite what my family and me are feeling about this.
What made you get into music in the first place?
jolle: My Problems. I used to be sad a lot and not really digging for what the reason was. So I started writing and it helped me a lot to figure out where the bad thoughts came from. My biggest luck was that most of my friends were already into creating music and producing so they started the process with me.
You have such INCREDIBLE fashion sense! Who or what are your influences when it comes to your style?
jolle: THANK YOU. This is so sweet. Definitely Peggy Gou and pretty much every strong women who bravely rocks a loud and colorful style.
What is your favorite thing about performing live? I had such a hard time being away from live music the last few years and I’m so grateful for live gigs again!
jolle: To be honest, I was kind of thankful to not have to. I started music while the pandemic was going on so I was kind of happy that I had a little bit of time to get used to the idea of performing on stage. But meanwhile I played my first gigs and I have to admit it's pretty awesome - so I am excited for everything to come.
Who would you say are some of your biggest influences when it comes to your music, sound, and songwriting?
jolle: When I was younger I was obsessed with Ellie Goulding, daughter, RY X and Bon Over. They were my first relation to Indie and Electro Pop. Atm moment I am obsessed with Tate McRea - she is just gorgeous. Oh and Billie Eilish of course - especially when it comes to fashion.
What does the rest of the year look like for you and your music? After hearing this new single, I can’t wait for more!
jolle: So happy to hear! The next single "Blue“ is dropping 20th May. It's a very special release for me because its a duet with my beloved friend Benji Asare aka. KINGLX who helped me writing the whole EP. There also 2 more songs that are coming out the next 3 months so stay tuned hahaha
