It’s still going to be fun, but it’s going to have some weight to it”. Remi’s unapologetically her, catch-up with her in our exclusive interview below.
How would you describe your music?
My music is a raw and honest collage of my life, my emotions, my experiences, my people, and my taste.
You have been playing multiple music festivals this year. Which fest and city has been your favorite?
Coachella was quite fun. I was able to put together a 9 piece band made up of really close friends of mine, which has been a dream of mine ever since I started releasing music. All live. We have the best chemistry because we all know each other and love each other so much. The show feels so fun and free and supportive. And the Coachella crowd was so engaged and riding the live experience with me. Me and the band were able to stay at a house with a pool and waterslides and just had a great time playing One Night Ultimate Werewolf and yelling at each other in the hot tub.
What is one thing you can’t live without on tour?
Definitely my sketchbook and markers. Drawing keeps me sane.
How would you say you are disrupting culture?
I’m a little lady screaming clit and cunt at the top of my lungs on stage.
Your style is amazing. What are your favorite vintage stores/sites to shop?
My current wardrobe is almost entirely comprised of clothes I’ve bought from a bunch of random second hand stores around the US and in Europe. London always has amazing vintage, especially in the shops on Brick Lane. I’ve also recently gotten into jeans and have four pairs of the same dad cut jeans from Levi’s. My favorite item of clothing I have right now is a fishing vest I bought at a bait and tackle shop in Ireland.
What is one thing you wish you could tell your 16-year-old self?
I would tell her to always trust her gut and run away from people that make her feel strange or misunderstood. They aren’t worth it and they suck!
What beauty product do you swear by?
My only skin care routine is putting on a bunch of Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream after I shower and it does the trick for me most of the time. I also wear the Mixed Emotions by Byredo perfume everyday and I smell incredible constantly.
What song of yours holds the most special place in your heart?
It depends on my mood, but recently I’ve been loving my song “Cake”. We are doing a really beautiful acoustic version of it at my shows right now and I love singing it and seeing how the audience responds. It’s a very vulnerable moment during the show.
You are dropping new music soon. What can we expect?
As always, expect the unexpected and keep your hearts and ears open to new sounds and flavors.
Who inspires you?
What song(s) made you fall in love with music as a kid?
Vultures by John Mayer was one of the first songs I heard where I was like, “damn, I really want to sing and write songs”. Continuum was the first album I fell in love with.
If one person you could collab with dead or alive, who would it be?
I would love to work with Yayoi Kusama. Her work, process, and dedication really excite me. I think there is a lot we could do together.
What is your song writing process?
I am a big improviser and freestyler. I love coming up with words that sound interesting together and paint a vivid picture. I want people to see my lyrics like a painting. Typically, when I’m in writing mode, I write fast and furious in order to capture the mood and the vibe of that exact moment in my life.
What is next for you?
New album and lots of Korean BBQ
