Behind: Sorry X - No Rivals

Behind: Sorry X

Get to know Sorry x , & get behind the creation of her new project “ Lost in Translation” 


How long did it take to make your project from start to finish, recording-wise?


X- It took me about 3 months! I wrote at least 20 tracks before I eventually narrowed it down to 5 and I really took my time on making sure I was happy with the whole project!


What kind of ‘sound’, production wise, did you have in your mind, prior to entering the studio?


X- I’m a hugely inspired by grunge/alternative rock music and I knew I wanted  every song on my EP to have that influence. 


What kind of input did the producer have during the process

And are you pleased with the final outcome? (sound – production wise)


X- Honestly, my vocal engineer Brody McKeegan just really brought the whole project to life which his vocal mixing and effects. We worked together really well straight away and it was just a fun project overall.


Please inform us about your favourite songs and lyrical highlights and why?


X- I seriously love all of the tracks for different reasons, but my favorite is the last track on the EP, Seven Seconds. The lyrics are very raw and honest, explaining where I am in life currently and knowing I can’t keep dwelling on the past (which tends to be a struggle for me) and needing to accept that and move on.


Some of my Favorite lyrics from Seven Seconds:

Why do I speak without thinking?

Drown in the late night drinking

Cause I’m self-sabotage sinking

And I just can’t go back


Any overall theme or mood that you’re trying to capture with the project?

Does your vision for creating music get affected at all by time?


X- I really just write about how I am feeling to better understand myself but with the hopes that someone else will also be able to relate. Music is therapy for me. I wouldn’t say my vision is compromised with time constraints, if I’m not happy with a song I will hold off until I think it’s ready.


Are there any ‘crazy’ behind the scenes stories from these sessions that you can share with us?


X- I had a listener who is also a big fan of 916frosty and he told me I should collab with him months before I wrote the EP. We both thought the likelihood of that happening was slim to none but I reached out to him anyway once I felt that I had a song that was good enough and 916frosty actually ended up digging the track and being on it! It was a huge accomplishment and dream come true! 


How would you describe the sound of your tape to any potential new fan?


X- Alternative rock vocals paired with hip hop beats.


Who are your influences and heroes? (music-wise)


X- I would say my main inspirations for this EP would be Post Malone, Doja Cat, Juice Wrld, Lil Peep, Nirvana, Evanescence, and Paramore.


If there’s anything you’d like to add, say, please do:


X- Thank you all for listening, I am truly so grateful ?
