Their single 'SWEAT!' has swiftly become a fan-favorite during live performances, making it the ideal introduction to BUKKY's world for those who may not be familiar with their music yet.
Where did the vision start and how has it progressed?
The vision started at a young age. It started with genuine love and attention to detail. There’s been so many twists and turns to my progression. A huge part of my progression has been experimenting and doing the absolute most.
Describe your sound in three words?
Multi-layered, beautiful, facetious.
Tell us about your debut EP ‘Location 419’. Could you elaborate on the process and the inspirations that fueled your writing?
Location 419 can be described as feeling scammed in different situations. The process of Location 419 was like cooking rice. I thought I put in 10 grains now I have a whole bowl of rice. The project and how the songs relate to each other only became clearer to me at the end. The inspirations that fuelled my writing were ego, depression, conversations, love and lust.
Is there a certain place where you feel the most creative?
I feel the most creative anywhere I feel comfortable and judgment free.
We’re all about new music discovery– who is an artist that you think everybody should be listening to right now?
Everybody should be listening to BINA. Her music feels like healing.
What’s one thing you’ve learnt throughout your music journey that you think every artist should know?
One thing I’ve learnt through my music journey that every artist should know is how to produce. I get to actively be playful and experiment. Even if you still collaborate with other producers, I honestly think knowing how to make at least the bare bones of your music is so special and changes everything about your music process and how you connect with the music. Huge pain and long process? Yes, but MY huge pain and long process.
What's been a highlight in your work so far?
A highlight in my work has probably been how my music translates live. My live shows have definitely pushed my name and music out there and has helped me grow into myself as a performer.
How do you approach writing lyrics and what themes do you like to explore?
I don’t have an approach to writing lyrics because it’s different every time but I know I like my personality to show through. I’m facetious in nature! The themes I’ve enjoyed exploring so far are inner dialogues with myself and the trials and tribulations of life cause life be trying it!!
What do you hope listeners take away from your music?
I hope listeners can connect with themselves with my music. When I make music that’s when I feel the most present. I hope people can feel present, there is so much peace I feel in feeling present and acknowledging the now.
What can we expect from you next?
Don’t expect anything because I don’t know what to expect either. I’m cooking rice and its somehow going to expand again and even I won’t see it coming.
