Who are the band members and what do they play?
Divina Blackson – Singer-songwriter.
How and where did you get together?
Where was the single/EP/album recorded and who was involved in its production?
It was recorded in London but the production team included two people in Paris and one in Los Angeles.
Is there a particular ethos behind the single/EP/album or any particular music styles or events that inspired it?
I wrote this song during the lockdown, the idea actually came to me in the shower and within 24 hours I had written three songs, Twisted Fantasy was one of them.
Can you briefly describe what the song/each song is about? If you are releasing an album then either describe the
thinking behind the project or choose a couple of lead tracks to focus on.
The song is about liberation, realising who you really are and not being ashamed of it. It’s about seeing your true reflection in someone else’s eyes and in letting go through love, you find yourself and the best moments.
Were there any notable or amusing happenings surrounding the recording/production of the EP? As above, list whatever might be of relevance.
I initially recorded the idea, melody and words on my laptop in the dark. Sometimes I feel it’s a vibe, it shuts every distraction out and the only thing in the room is my voice and the mic.
Please provide a one or two-line personal quote that can be attributed to a band member, about either the band themselves or the release. Obviously the more eye-catching this is the better.
