Interview: Swaati
Jeremy Williams-Chalmers, Arts Correspondent
Hailing from West London dance-pop singer-songwriter Swaati has been turning heads within the music industry with her distinctive vocals and song writing skills.

With a sound described as a fusion of electronic, commercial and French House, Swaati has been compared to Lykke Li, Grimes and London Grammar, with her haunting and emotive vocals.

With her latest single, Catch Me, having the hooky appeal of Ellie Goulding, we caught up with Swaati to ask what song makes you...








Smile

Coconut by Harry Nilsson

It makes me happy it makes me smile… it’s my feel good, go to song
with a funny twist.

Contemplate

Anything by Jhene Aiko

I find the lyrics very deep, added with the whips voice; makes me
think, feel and go into an introspective pensive state.

Cry

The Interlude by Yanni

It’s the dudook, the rare Armenian instrument that evokes much
emotion, and when i listen to this sound masterpiece, I feel the
instrument is crying, which in effect stirs my emotions to no end.

Laugh

Freaky Friday by Lil Dicky

It such a silly track with hilarious lyrics. It’s my silly can’t
believe they made it.. but so funny they did.

Want to work out

Boomerang by Jidenna

It makes me want to move! I can’t sit still listening to this. It gets my heart pumping and I am up and ready to shake it.

Reminisce

Gypsy Kings - Bamboleo

One of my sisters used to play this ALL THE FRIGGING TIME (talk about OCD - she had it with this song), and as a result I grew up listening to it for years. I hear this and am instantly teleported back in time.

Relax

Anything by Ricky Nelson

I find this music isn’t invasive, it can be on in the background. I find it comforting yet it gives me space to be.

Feel Determined

Drop The World by Lil Wayne feat Eminem

Makes me feel empowered and invincible… slightly aggressive but empowering none the less.

Dancewsw

Raingurl by Yaeji

This one gets me into the groove, and instantly gets me into the zone. Its the kind of music I love at festivals.
