Interview: "Tiny Moving Parts" - Luxury Goods
Q: ‘Tiny Moving Parts’ is so relatable! What is the story behind the song?
Luxury Goods: Thank you, I’m glad you think so! I think what makes it relatable is because we all go through similar emotions at multiple points in our lives. For me, Tiny Moving Parts came from a place of contemplating why I was being so hard on myself. I was tearing myself down all of the time, and for the sake of “just getting on with it” I was not looking after my health & wellbeing nearly enough. We can be very vicious to ourselves, and have a lot of internalized expectations of who we should be and what we should look like. It takes a lot of strength to tune out the external opinions we stack up in our minds and to reclaim our confidence. I wrote Tiny Moving Parts to remind myself and everyone who needs it that we're allowed to move on from that voice, and that self-reflection shouldn't turn into self-hatred.
Q: Your new EP, ‘This Is No Time To Dance’, is being released on September 16th. What are you most excited about in terms of the release?
Luxury Goods: I think what I’ve been most excited about all along is just having it out into the world and seeing how people respond to it. We’ve worked on the EP for a long time, and with covid and vinyl delays it’s easy to feel a bit numb about the whole process.
But seeing the EP out in the world and hearing people be genuinely excited about the release has brought new life into the music for me. It almost feels like the songs are new again, and I haven’t heard them all a thousand times before.
Q: What is your personal favorite song from the new EP? You can only pick one!
Luxury Goods: Very tough, but at the moment it’s ‘Again’. I love how positively people respond to the fact it’s about periods. I don’t think I quite realized how much it would resonate with others, and that feels very special.
Q: Who would you love to collaborate with in the future?
Luxury Goods: Paramore, Rina Sawayama, and Bring Me The Horizon. All three would leave me absolutely starstruck though, so I’d definitely need a moment to come back down to earth if it ever happens.
Q: What is your favorite part about being an artist?
Luxury Goods: I love that it allows me to create a musical and visual world in which I can be my most theatrical self. I can pour all of my emotions into it and being on stage or in the recording studio makes me feel totally free.
Q: What should we expect next for your music career?
Luxury Goods: More of everything. This year has given me my mojo back, and we’re working on new music, playing more shows and developing more colorful visuals. I’m so excited for Luxury Goods to keep growing and to share our music with more and more people.
