Our exclusive interview with ZAHRIK for the release of his new song ‘Party In My Bedroom’

Tell us about your song “Party In My Bedroom? And what’s the story behind it?

I wrote this song during quarantine to express my desire to run away from my intrusive thoughts, most often with distractions like music. To sit at the keyboard and melt into the keys or to listen to a song and forget you exist its that kinda joyous escapism that music has provided to me and that I wanted to share. Also it helped that my crush at the time liked the song, so… that was extra motivation to finish ha ha ha

 

Instrumentation wise I wanted it to have the chaotic feeling of a party, and every good party needs guests. I was fortunate to have several of my friends contribute their talents by playing horns, guitars, kazoos, vocals, perform a skit; I even had a harmonica world champion perform on it. Which I think will always crack me up.

2. What makes your music unique? And how would you describe it?

I think my music is unabashedly vulnerable, and that’s the kind of music I like the most. It’s also a bit facety. I’d describe it as an episode of adventure time or the rush of biting into a gusher

3. Which is the best moment in your musical career that you’re most proud of?

I think it would have to be August 2016 when I made the decision to pursue music full time. It took 5 years to get to where I could support myself financially and I’m proud of myself for working towards that all these years.

4. How do you balance your music with other obligations – family, friends or work?

While music is my full-time job now, I know I work best when I’m happiest, and I’m happiest when I see people. So making time for friends and family is a priority that keeps me grounded.

5. What advice would you give to aspiring musicians?

People believe in you for a reason, so keep showing up for yourself. Believe in the me that believes in you ifykyk

6. If you had one message to give to your fans, what would it be?

Thank you so much for your time and for giving my music a shot!

7. What’s next for you? Any upcoming songs/projects

Yeah!

I am producing a few songs for XTINA GG’s upcoming ep the first of which will be released in September.

I am a songwriter on a song to be featured in the 18roses film so keep an out for it here. 

I also have tracks coming out with Julia rose Segal, Mo Dubs and Brede soon
