Interview: Gwyn Love Chats New Record | Popternative

We chatted with pop artist Gwyn Love about her new record, dimr, coming out on November 5, 2021 via 604 Records. You can pre-save the album on Spotify here. Gwyn discusses what to expect from the new record, her creative process, and the music industry.

How excited are you to release this new record?

GL: I’ve been sitting on these tracks for awhile and I’m super stoked for people to finally hear them!

What can we expect from these new songs?

GL: You can expect to hear a new side of Gwyn Love. dimr represents fleeting feelings and moments in time that were significant enough at the time to write about and remember forever. There are songs about my first true love and all the trials that come along with learning to love, a lot of feelings that I simply couldn’t hold inside any longer. Louise Burns and I co-wrote half of this album together and the other half was co-written with La+ch, which means they were all written and recorded in Canada which is pretty cool. Super pumped for you guys to hear and hopefully relate to these songs.

What advice would you give to aspiring musicians?

GLThis is a very hard industry to get into, you have to be realistic about that, but you can’t listen to everyone’s doubt. Believe in yourself and follow your dreams, you don’t want to live your life thinking “what if.”

What is your favorite song to perform live?

GLI haven’t got to perform my own show yet, sadly. I really love performing my new tracks for my friends with my keyboard at my apartment. An oldie I really enjoy playing is “better than u.”

Can you describe your creative process when you’re writing new music?

GL: It generally starts with a phrase that I really like or think should be a song. It comes differently every time though. Sometimes it’s a melody, but mostly my brain is always listening for lyrics to spark an idea for a song.

What has been the best advice someone has given you about music?

GLNot everyone is going to like your music, and that’s okay.

Which musician would you like to collaborate with in the future?

GL: Paul Klein from LANY, if you happen to see this – hmu let’s write a song.
