We caught up with Selina to run down her musical evolution and why she's mesmerised by SZA.
She describes having been making music for ‘as long as she can remember’ and her 2021 album, ‘Solace’, demonstrated Selina’s capacity for spiritual and personal connection through her music. Always highlighting both the light and the dark, her fanbase has grown though a consistent commitment to vulnerability that drives the artist’s songwriting.
“DO YOU MIND/LOST IT” tells listeners in the chorus “I’m not who you think I am, Don’t act like you give a damn”. A call to self-improvement and moving on, in celebration of the new single we caught up with Selina.
As she enters a new punk-esque, grungey era, we find out all about her whirlwind year so far, her musical evolution, and more. Dive in!
Hey Selina, how’s this year been going for you so far? You’ve already had three single releases!
This year has been a whirlwind on emotion honestly. I’ve undergone a lot of change since the end of last year, which has inspired a lot of new music. Those two singles that have come out are a direct reflection of what my life has been like over the last year and it has been amazing getting to share them with the world.
Solace. Conversational. Authentic. A song I would point new listeners to is my single “16”. I wrote it in a place of reflection from when I was 16. It’s really a song I wrote to my past self, and how I can still relate to her.
