New York-born, Nashville-based electro-pop songstress Eulene released the second single, ‘Megalomaniac’, from her upcoming self-titled EP last month. We caught up with her to find out more about the EP and ‘Meglomaniac’.
Alternative songs produced with pop sonics.
First up, tell us a bit about yourself - what first got you into music?
I have always loved to sing. Singing led the way to performing and ultimately to writing my own music.
Were there any particular bands or artists you took inspiration from?
I love and have sung choral and classical music, I grew up listening to zydeco, bluegrass and old country. I have been very inspired by M.I.A and Bjork.
How would you describe your style?
Alternative. Alternative songs produced with pop sonics.
If you could collaborate with any living artist who would you choose?
Tell us about your self-titled EP, released earlier this month. What’s it about?
I have released two singles ‘Momma’ which is about the textures and beauty of the feminine. And my latest single ‘Megalomaniac’ is about power…a poisonous dose. My EP will be released later this year.
When did you write it, and where did you record it?
I wrote and recorded everything at my home studio, mostly throughout the last two years. I did some drum tracks at The Sound Emporium studio here in Nashville - but otherwise worked in home studios.
How does the EP represent your style?
I have a rhythmic style. Both in the music and in the vocal. When you listen to the recordings you will hear it.
What response have you had to the EP so far?
It’s been exciting to hear all the positive feedback coming in from the two singles I have released ‘Momma’ and ‘Megalomaniac’. It’s very encouraging to hear that the music is connecting with people.
What other plans do you have for the rest of the year?
Always playing and writing and I will release another single from the EP in the Fall. Stay tuned!
Finally, if you could wish for one thing to happen for you this year, what would it be?
My greatest wish is to reach more and more people with my music… to cast the EuleneMusic net wider and wider.
