THE INDIE/POP ARTIST HAS DEFINED HER MUSIC AS A MAGICAL AND IMMERSIVE EXPERIENCE, AND TO GIVE CONTINUITY TO HER PROJECT, THE MAGIC CONTINUED WITH THE PREMIERE OF A NEW SONG "THEY LIVE IN AND AROUND US".
Hi ALISUN. Tell us a bit about yourself.
Some things about myself: I love nature, I love learning from everything I can, and I try to pay extra attention to those who are voiceless in society/on Earth. I’m someone who sees people for who they truly are without judgment. I consider myself to be someone who tries to see the best in others so that I can give the best of myself to them at the same time. I consider myself an eternal student.
Tell us more about the premiere of AROUND THE WORLD (your 3rd recording single). What is it about, what inspired you to create it?
This song is really about listening to younger generations and the children—listening to their hopes and dreams in an attempt to make the world a better place for them to live in the future. I wrote this in response to Greta Thunberg’s speech about how our world leaders have let our generation down as well as all generations after us in regard to the climate crisis. I felt so impacted that a person of her age has such a strong voice for the cause that I had to make something out of it. I wanted to let her and others know that they are not alone and that there are people acting on real positive change, not just those saying they want it or projecting empty promises. The single is also a promise to my inner child and younger self because it’s something I’ve always cared about, and I want to make that version of me proud.
