Hello, PRESSREELS subscribers, fans. I am NIve. Thank you for this interview!
I spent most of my time working on the songs in this mini-album. I also worked as a producer, met my friends, and spent time with my family.
When I think about the times when I was under a lot of stress, I thought, “I want to run away from everything.” I made “ESCAPE” because I wanted to express those feelings.
II thought I should focus on the change of emotions and concentrated the most on that part while recording. In particular, the chorus is a section that shows the climax of intense emotions, and I tried to feel those changes well.
Life has always come to think that it is a natural phenomenon for one to want to run away, whether it is feelings or myself. I think wanting to run away from something is a natural feeling that I would feel as long as I am alive, and I think I would be able to find my true self when I fully accept those natural feelings.
The title track for this album, “I’m Alive,” is a pop-rock genre that is the same as “ESCAPE” and has a strong impact. I think it’s the song that expresses the message of this album in a straightforward way. There are five tracks in this album. I hope you listen to all five tracks. Each song contains the changes in my feelings, and if you follow these changes, it’s an album like an essay that is completed with a story. All the tracks are connected, so I hope many people listen to all the songs on the album!
I think it’s helpful not to do anything at times like that. If I take a day off without doing anything at home, I gain strength the next day and can work again.
When I am working as a producer, I tend to erase “me” and focus on the artist I’m working with. I think of a story that would be best suited to the person by being “the other person.” I think that’s the way I like to work.
I want to work with artists from other genres. There are a lot of artists I want to work with. I can’t pick one. I think I need to think about it!
Going on a drive. I think it’s good to organize my thoughts in my own space while I’m driving.
My future goal is to meet my fans in person and perform. I hope that day comes soon.
I would like to be remembered as a friendly artist that comes to mind and talk together whenever happy things or sad things happen, like a friend. I would like to remain an artist like that.
Wouldn’t I still be writing and singing like now? I hope artist NIve would be an artist who will continue to work hard with the same mindset even after ten years.
Thank you for giving lots of interest in me and listening to my story. I’ll try harder to give back love and support to all of you. Thank you!
