Q: We love the 80s inspired production and how catchy and fun the chorus is. What inspired you to write “Over It”?
EDITH: I wrote “Over It” after a bumpy relationship, as a coping mechanism. It was a moment in my life when I was leaving any toxic relationships in my life behind and moving on forward with my life. I think I wrote the song in 10 minutes or so. It felt extremely natural.
Q: The music video for “Over It” definitely fits the overall vibe of the song. How did the concept for the video come together? Did you have fun making it?
EDITH: I actually came up with the idea with my videographer and we went from there. A few of my friends were part of the video so filming it was extremely fun. It’s one of the first proper videos I have filmed and I am very proud of it.
Q: At age ten, you moved from Romania to England to pursue a career in music. How did you know at such an early age that music was the career path for you?
EDITH: I feel like for me it was always one of those things you just know. For as long as I remember I’ve wanted to sing and write. I used to always sing in the car, at home, in class, literally anywhere I could.
Q: Who are your biggest influences?
EDITH: I grew up listening to all sort of music, The Beatles, Eric Clapton and anything on the radio. I’m a huge fan of Lauv because I absolutely adore the fact that he produces and writes his own music. He is an inspirational genius.
Q: In your own words, how would you describe the music that you typically create?
EDITH: Hmm, I would probably say personal. All my music is born from highly personal experiences, so I would say it is very close to my heart and I hope those who listen feel the same. I think it is very important that music has a story.
Q: What was the experience like making a debut album during a pandemic and what did you learn from it?
EDITH: It was great! I loved being able to work remotely. The pandemic was a great opportunity for me to sit down and write as much as I can, which I am thankful for. I would probably say if it wasn’t for the pandemic, I wouldn’t have been able to put in as much work as I did. It has been amazing working with my two producers over Zoom, explaining the ideas and putting them together. I am honestly so excited for the album!
