After receiving a wave of support from the likes of KALTBLUT Magazine, Truffle., Dressed Like Machines, Fritz Radio, and Glglz Radio over the last few months, Israeli singer and songwriter Lara Snow has now returned to deliver her highly-anticipated debut EP 'Delete Forever', alongside the newly unveiled single 'Wild Sea'.
Mixing electro-pop production with a smooth and sensual aesthetic, 'Wild Sea' acts as the perfect introduction to the frontwoman's latest work. Following in the footsteps of other alt-pop heroines such as MØ and Robyn, this latest offering showcases her as one of the most promising new acts to emerge in recent times.
So with her new collection now available to stream, we had a chat with Lara to find out more about her influences and what drives her passion for music.
What was the first instrument you fell in love with?
Piano. My mother was a piano tutor when I was a child and I loved the sound of it. She used to play classic music and till this day piano makes me very nostalgic.
What has been the most prominent inspiration behind your music so far?
Personal experiences, people in my life and my dreams.
What kind of music did you love as a teenager?
As a teenager I was into Punk-Rock & Pop-Punk. I loved bands such as Alkaline Trio, Bayside & No Use For A Name.
When you wake up in the morning, what kind of music do you like to listen to?
Well, this changes often but at the moment I would say oldies. Love starting the day with Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazlewood’s 'Summer Wine'.
How many of your songs have you written about people in your life?
All of them.
What has been the most memorable moment in your career so far?
The first time that audience sang my lyrics during a show.
If you weren’t a musician, what other path do you think you might have taken?
I would probably become an actress. When I was young I used to act in plays but at some point I had to choose and music was my biggest passion.
