Encompassing the sweaty momentum of the dancefloors which we all miss so much, VISSIA’s latest single is an ode to the simplicity of being in the moment with someone you love and appreciate – mind, body and soul. New track, On My Mind, is out and VISSIA spoke with The Fountain about the reception to this, and the her hopes for the year.
TF: You have a new single out, what has the reception been like to On My Mind?
On My Mind has been doing what I had hoped it would. With much of the world being under strict lockdown or with social restrictions in place, this song offers two and a half minutes of danceable escapist freedom to anyone who needs it. Surely we could all benefit from that right now. I also think that fun and flirty experiences are usually not given the full appreciation they deserve. Being present and fully in the moment is incredibly meaningful. I think that’s why music that makes people want to be in their own bodies is so powerful.
TF: How would you sum up the track in one sentence?
On My Mind is a sparkling daydream about being completely present with someone and appreciating all of them – mind, body and soul – right here, right now, just as they are.
TF: What is your plan for the remainder of the year, after this release?
It’s hard to see further than a few months ahead at a time right now, but I can say that the full album is on its way this spring. I’ve got another single and video coming out sometime in February, have some other videos to plan for, and I am live-streaming twice a week: Tuesdays live on Instagram with a different artist guest each episode, and Thursdays live on YouTube.
TF: Where is your favourite venue for playing live, where is the next place you look most forward to gigging?
Right now my favourite venue is the only venue I have, which is my bedroom. It’s like how they say, home is where the heart is, except in this case it’s, the gig is where the guitar is. Well, and where the internet connection is. The next place I look forward to gigging is the place with the face-to-face audience. I have no idea what will be available when we are able to play live concerts again, but I look forward to seeing real live humans breathing the same air as me.
