Wavves, Best Coast & No Joy - Summer Is Forever - EP [FULL]
For the most part, most days, I think life can be confusing. I think it's good to be realistic about things and give realistic advice. Sometimes, people come back to me and tell me that it's worked for them or that it's helped them in time. It's a nice thing to know, and it's nice to know that you are not alone in the search of trying to figure out how to center your thoughts and your anxiety and all that.
It's kind of like this club for weird anxious people. I feel like I've created it in a way. Being a regular person suffering from depression and anxiety is tough enough, but I imagine that being in the public eye make it a lot harder.
How has this affected your music and songwriting process? I think that just being myself and having the opportunity to get those thoughts and feelings off my chest in the form of music and in the form of song, is really cathartic.
It's very nice to be able to say things that I'm thinking and things that I've been feeling, and just put them out into the world, and to have all these people come back and say, "I relate to that. I totally feel that same way. People will say, "Well, don't you have social anxiety? How do you get up on stage and perform? Sometimes there's days where I think about how impatient I can be and how stressed I can feel.
Like, if I'm waiting in line at the grocery store, and there's too many people around me, I can just easily throw all my stuff down and be like, 'No. To think that I've allowed myself to grow and my career has allowed me to grow from the kind of person I was, I know now that I can't just throw the groceries down and walk out of the grocery store. When it comes to my job, I have to be like, "You know what, this is what I do. I'm back home for the holidays, and my year-old brother has been listening to it a lot.
Back when you wrote Crazy For Youwere you intending for it to become a relatable record for young people, especially young women? No, not at all. I was just writing from the perspective of being in my early 20s and feeling still very filled with teenage angst and still feeling very confused by myself and my feelings.Reverb Soundcheck: Wavves and Best Coast
I was just really writing from that perspective. I have a lot of seminal albums from when I was a teenager. I was listening to that record a couple weeks ago and I still remember every lyric that I felt was related to my life at the age of 15 and how it still relates to my life at the age of I think that it's really cool for me to know that I created a record and I've created this piece of art that's kind of like a time capsule of my life at that time.
It's cool to know that people reflect back on that record and it takes them back to being 15 or 22 or however old they were when the record came out. Records that I listened to in high school, and I can remember driving in my first car listening to it.
Sometimes I think I can be almost too nostalgic, but I think that it's very cool for me to know that there are very young people who are just being introduced to the record. I think that one of the things that grab people's attention about Best Coast and about that record, and about me as a songwriter, was the fact that I was just unapologetically writing about everyday feelings and emotions and doing it in a very simplistic way where I wasn't sugarcoating it.
