Frida Maria is living in the Moments with her emotionally potent new EDM collaboration featuring Charlie Atom — showcasing today on Tinnitist.
“It’s pretty dark writing — but in another way it’s happy and the song / beat / melody itself gives you a happy feeling,” Frida shares of her song with DJ / producer Atom. “It’s a play of emotions we face daily; everyone experiences moments in their own unique way, so the writing is pretty universal when you think about it because it can apply differently to whoever is interpreting the song in their own precise moments.”
A Swedish / Danish artist, model, and actress, Frida dreamily incorporates electronica in a new age, indie, pop-rock soundscape that is as much a nod to the dance floor as it is a beacon of a new generation of musical conception. Her tantalizing vocal prowess hooks the listener and holds their attention captive through exciting, exhilarating beats woven into each song’s harmonic atmosphere.
“For me, writing music and lyrics / poetry is always something very deep and profound as I’m channeling my inner emotions when I do it,” Frida reveals. “When a song comes to me, it’s usually in moments when I feel either very sad or very happy, so the song Moments was an inspiration in that sense; I wanted to create a song and text by being in the now, in the moment.”
Mission accomplished. “I came with the lyrics and the initial melody to DJ Charlie Atom and I sang it to him a cappella in his studio in Mexico City,” Frida recalls. “I tried to not overthink it too much, and wrote it very quickly with feelings and words that just came to me. Quickly, he nailed down the piano melody structure of the song, and we went directly from there to record the vocals before he did the entire production of additional beats / instruments and mastering. We made this song in a few hours, and I think that is why it’s nice that the name is Moments. We just went for it and didn’t hesitate to create a cool piece of music in the moment we were in at the time.”
