Love You Later - Sound In The Signals Interview


I recently had the opportunity to interview Love You Later. We discussed an early interest in music, what pushed her to keep going with the project, musical influences, writing and recording new song, “Keepintouch”, the inspiration behind the video, and more. Check it out below. 

First, thanks for the interview. 

Hi, thank you so much for having me!!!

Can you tell me how you formed the project for those who may be unfamiliar? How did you initially become interested in music?

I grew up always doing something involving music - school and church choir, music lessons, musical theater, talent shows, songwriting camps, etc. Writing music and taking it seriously came later, around the age of 12. I released my first song as Love You Later, ‘Lost In Los Angeles’ in Feb 2017 simply because I was passionate about it so I wanted to put it out. After a 6 month lull of mostly just friends and family spinning the song, I woke up with the song on US, Canada, and Global Viral Top 50. It was super unexpected, but it gave me a really significant push to keep going. Now, Love You Later is my main project and focus and I don’t know where I’d be today without her.

Who are some of your biggest influences?

Some of my biggest influences are Dolly Parton, MUNA, The Japanese House, Natalie Imbruglia, Fleetwood Mac, Shania Twain, and Frou Frou. 

You recently released your song “Keepintouch”. Can you tell me about the writing and recording process for the song?

The writing process for this one was especially vulnerable, yet natural. I went into the writing session not really knowing what I wanted to write about but I did know what I was feeling that day - a lot of loneliness and isolation and confusion. So the session basically started out as a therapy session with co-writers and friends, Bre Kennedy and Kyle Dreaden. It quickly turned into this energetic, life giving song with notes of loss, self-realization and self-discovery - one of my favorites to date. :)

You released a video for the song as well. What was the inspiration for the video and who came up with the concept for it?

While writing ‘Keepintouch', I already knew it needed a video because I could visualize the scenes, colors, themes in my head. The song is very colorful and clear to me so it just had to have a video. I called up the director, Chase Denton, and discussed my vision/concept and he and his team brought it to life so effortlessly!

Do you have a favorite moment or story from the video shoot?

The first half of the day, I was wearing this pink unitard/bodysuit type thing that was basically sheer and it was about 40 degrees and windy out - a horrible day for a sheer bodysuit. So between shots, I would gather my coat, ear muffs, gloves, scarfs, anything I could get to keep me warm and then take it all off the shoot again. It was miserable but worth it for the shots, lol.

What’s coming up for you next? Will we hear more new music this year? What can you tell us about it so far? 

I’ve been in writing mode the first half of this year writing some of my favorite Love You Later songs, so you’ll definitely be hearing more music soon! I’m excited for you to hear it.

Thanks for taking the time to answer the questions. Do you have anything else that you would like to add?

Thank you!!!!
