Get ready because ya’ll are in for a serious treat, we sat down with one of the most exciting young female talents coming up in the game, Bea Moon.
Moon’s level of maturity just shows how much this means to her and we know it’s only going to be a matter of time before this gal will make it big, so get educated.
Hi Bea, first up tell us a bit about how your passion for music started?
I don’t come from a musical family but I was always so interested in how songs were made. My mum was a Freddie Mercury fan and played a lot of Queen around the house. I heard Bohemian Rhapsody for the first time and immediately knew I wanted to be a musician.
Who were some of your biggest influences growing up and why?
(Females that dominated 2010 onwards) Taylor, Nicki, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga and Bey had a massive effect on me growing up. I’m from Punchbowl so there wasn’t much for me to look at besides going to school and playing volley, so these women were a massive escape for me.
They had their own in a scene that was so dominated by males and just always did it big for each era, album and video. I feel like that level of worldwide influence with women is so undervalued to this day in the music industry.
How would you describe your music?
I’d describe it as very diary-esque, dark but inviting, strong and playful.
How did your latest single, ‘Chronic’ come about?
Lazy J asked me to come to a session for his song and I arrived 10 minutes earlier before he did. Sefru played a loop which was the guitar sound on the intro of ‘Chronic’ and I told him to let me freestyle something quick and that ended up as the chorus for ‘Chronic’. I wrote the rest of it the next day and we released months later.
Tell us a bit about what the song is about?
It’s about having a strong attraction to someone who’s vague but still open to you, so you’re in this moment of “ok this sh*** is crazy/chronic but it’s what I want”. So, the song sort of goes through wanting the guy to stop playing around and come through with how he feels.
What was it like working alongside Lazy J and DJ Sefru?
So fun. They’re like family to me! We all care about making sure everything is the best it can be so it just works well naturally.
Where do you get most of your inspiration for your song writing?
A lot of it is personal and the situations I get myself into. I read a lot and I’ve always been a big fan of literature and writers in general, so it’s an innate feeling of wanting to create worlds mixed with being a growing woman trying to make sense of stuff.
What would be your dream collaboration?
I’ve always wanted to write or do something with Diplo, Flume and Drake.
What are the top three songs playing on repeat on your playlist at the moment?
Paul Anka (Put Your Head On My Shoulder), Flume (Blue Remix) and Pop Smoke (For The Night).
What do you hope listeners will take away from your music?
To know that it’s ok to be themselves. I don’t filter or think twice about the things I say in my music ever. so I hope my listeners can take that away from me!
Any exciting things you got planned in the near future you can hint at?
Probably a project and more vibes on a different scale!
Finally, what’s your biggest piece of advice to any young aspiring musician reading this?
Don’t feel like you’ve got to change how you are because you don’t fit into a certain mould and get real friends who support your best interests. The wrong circle can cost you more than you know.
Go give our gal Bea some major LOVE and grab your copy of the killer tune with Lazy J, ‘Chronic’ HERE.
