We had an opportunity to interview WENS via Zoom!

"I grew up in a bubble. A beautifully tragic beach town filled with cars more expensive than my parents’ yearly salary, limitless credit cards, moms with plastic surgery, and slightly broken families with privilege beyond anything I could understand. Obviously, I was lucky to be able to grow up in such a nice community, but I struggled with always feeling like I missed the mark. Whether it was my house being the smallest out of my friends, my skin being a little darker than my friends, my parents being a little more private than my friends, the type of clothes I wore, or even seeing my future completely different than how my friends saw theirs. So I started writing. I wrote songs before I could even process any of my emotions. It was my way of expressing my feelings without talking. Because I sort of hate talking. About myself at least. Most times I wrote to escape my reality and other times I wrote to face my harsh realities. I ended up falling in love with writing because I finally felt I found something that made me feel a little more grounded to the Earth. Some people ask me why I’ve gotten certain tattoos and I realize it’s the same reason I write songs. They remind me of a time in my life. A feeling that I had that will never die. Because moments are fleeting unless you document them through art. I definitely get a little scared the feeling music gives me might wear off, and sometimes it does, but I always find myself circling back to it when I need it the most. "
