London, 2016. A stream of consciousness during the production of my upcoming album, "O". I reached for the pen and let my imagination roam free. "favorite rain" was created without asking why. I didn't know where the content’s journey would lead. When the song was finally complete, I couldn’t shake the feeling of having written "favorite rain" for the little person growing inside me. But I was neither pregnant at the time, nor had I met the father of my since-born son, to whom this song is dedicated.
While writing a storyboard for the video of the same name, the term "censorship" permeated the room. I wanted to show the female breast, my breast, which, according to my female self-image, I perceive to be a beautiful body part. Female legs are obvious symbols in our everyday lives, but female breasts are censored on so-called "social networks", whose origins are attributed to modernism. In contrast to the male chest, the open display of its female counterpart is still considered "indecent". I find this to be archaic and sexist.
For the sake of aesthetics, I very deliberately chose not to censor myself and cover my chest in the video for "favorite rain". This part is clear. My desire to visualise breastmilk as a key element of life in the video came from a question that was occupying my mind: Why is it perceived as disturbing to see breastmilk, even though breastfeeding a baby is one of the most natural things one can experience in the mother-child relationship? Breastmilk soaks my face in the middle of the video. Are we as humans already so absorbed in pornography that this video sequence is initially interpreted as something quite different? I find this question extremely relevant, and also amusing, not least because my body takes an almost sacred role in the video.
The music of the song that carries the video has sounds that are associative, popping up like little lights and luring your awareness down ever-evolving trails, while simultaneously being pop-adjacent. I've never found pop and art to be mutually exclusive in music.
Do I want to be provocative with "favorite rain"? I like the thought of making people think. That, too, is an expression of love.

The Album „O“ will be released on March 23rd 2018.
