Prior to the release, TLF managed to link up with Vali Woods to chat about her influences, the new single, her ultimate message, plans for the future, and much more! You can peep our exclusive interview below:
(TLF) First off, for those who aren’t familiar, who is Vali Woods?
VALI – Vali Woods is an up and coming R&B singer, rapper and songwriter. I’m based in Melbourne, Australia, and trying to increase the presence of R&B/Hip-Hop music in the city. Born in the US, I bring a lot of American influence to my music and am passionate about pushing these genres into the mainstream and radio in Australia.
(TLF) Who are some of your biggest musical influences?
VALI – The Weeknd, Tinashe, Aaliyah, DaniLeigh, Teyana Taylor, Usher, PartyNextDoor, and Drake.
(TLF) Congrats on the release of your new single ‘Daydream’, what does this record mean to you?
VALI – This record is a big milestone for me as an artist! It’s a personal song which shows vulnerability and it is definitely a different style for Vali Woods listeners. The production is unique and quite trippy, it blends modern R&B elements with an alternative twist.
(TLF) What was the process like in bringing it together?
VALI – The process of getting the foundation of the song came very naturally. It was the first song that I wrote with my collaborator, Anoesis, and we’ve been working on the song ever since. We’ve made so many minor changes to the vocal effects and the production and took our time with it to make sure it matched our vision.
(TLF) What is the ultimate message you wish to convey with your music?
VALI – The ultimate message I wish to convey with my music is to be yourself, follow your dreams and to dream big, as well as being open about vulnerability. I also explore a lot of feminist themes such as empowerment and sexual liberation.
(TLF) Lastly, what else can the people expect to look forward from Vali Woods? Are there any further releases, shows or drops that we should be on the lookout for?
VALI – The people can expect the ‘I Can’t Pretend’ EP to drop early 2020 and several live shows around Melbourne.
