Littlecigarette – Single And Video ‚Fur Coat‘ + Exclusive Interview

Hello, thank you for your time, please introduce yourself in a few words!

Hey yo — hola! I’m Littlecigarette, living in pauperdom while aiming for stardom. I’m an introvert standing at 5’5” (without my cuban heels on). I live on the outskirts of culture, in a small town in England.

Please give us an update about – new single, new album, new videos

I’ve got some guns loaded, so to speak. My album, Omega, which will be dropping this year, was made by me and completed in 2019. It’s been a long wait, painful and blissful. In July they’ll be another track released, not as a single, more as an insight, a taste, some more allure. Beyond that I have another video that I cherish and regard with great esteem which will be the next and most epic release prior to the album. Further on, as being a new artist, steps after the album release are more malleable.

Name 5 things we all should know about you as an artist?

First, I’m actually an artist. The question crazed me for so long: what does it mean to be an artist? It means you don’t reside in the centre of culture; artists are those who reach their hands out into what is beyond the known and pull in from the edges of culture the fragments of chaos they catch. I’ve done this in my deep relation and exploration of chaos. They/we do this with absolute frankness, even ignorance, or just naturally. When I learnt that I then realised what an artist actually is and if I have the right to even call myself one: so that’s first.

I make music for me, but I don’t claim total credit; sometimes I listen to a beat I’ve made and really feel it wasn’t totally me who made that, some spirits where dancing with me.

I write, produce, perform, sing, rap all of my content. Making music is a solitary process for me — so far.

I’m dynamic in my productions. I dislike the idea of being confined to a genre. I’m partly an experimentalist.

I rap, but I don’t regard myself as a rapper.

What fashion style or brand would best describe your music?

Fur coats — anything fur. Black and white, grandmas blouses and pastel tones. But I’ll wear skinny jeans and cuban heels one day and baggy jeans and Timberlands the next. I wear outfits that conflict in some people’s eyes. “Are you a rapper? Or a rockstar?” I’m just an artist, and if I dig it, I wear it.

Do you have any bad habits? A guilty pleasure you can’t seem to quit?

I need jersey milk, all the time, a lot, rich and creamy. I like sinsemilla, I like an occasional benzo; but I like to think I’ve come very very far since my condition prior to getting signed: I was a suicidal junkie. Now I’m in love, starving for stardom and have had my gratitude for and trust in life restored.

Besides music, do you have any special talents?

I write a lot. Poems, a novel, a play. I love classic literature, Proust is my biggest literary hero. I’ll for sure put focus one day for this aspect of my interests.

Being on stage feels like….?

I don’t know, I’ve never been on one. I’ve spent hours and hours and hours religiously practicing performance since I was 17. If the audience doesn’t faze me, then I’ll rock that stage like I been doing it for years — in some sense, I have.

A question you’d like to answer, but never been asked in an interview before + your response.

Why do people like Music?

Music illustrates a rhythm which dances on the edges of the known and the unknown. I think music speaks to people because first because of it’s sonic nature — the multi-layer dance of different sounds and energies together at play in the span of time; and then the story aspect: most songs are about Love – 95% I think. You put a song and love together honestly and you don’t even know what you create sometimes, and doubtless can you comprehend what it will make people feel.
