Julia Holter - Have You In My Wilderness | Domino


"- Because the stories you were pulling on for this record were more personal, did that in any way change your approach to lyric writing? Were you thinking about how direct you should be or how guarded you should be, or how poetic, because you were dealing with personal experiences more?
- No, actually, I don’t really censor myself that much. I just let myself sing what I want to sing. I think that for the most part what goes on with my songs is I just blurt stuff out. I’m playing the piano and I just kind of blurt out these melodies that sometimes have words in them that make no sense—I think a lot of writers do this. Eventually it coalesces into something that makes sense, a coherent phrase in English or whatever. With “Betsy on the Roof” this is what happened. I was like [sings unintelligiable lyrics], and it turned into this thing that makes sense—sort of—or a poetic idea at least. That’s how I write: I don’t really sit down and write a song about my feelings in a very direct way. I would say it is a cathartic thing for me to write music, and if I’m upset about something I will, but it won’t be necessarily super clear. Sometimes I don’t even know what my emotions are and they come out as I’m writing and it won’t be necessarily be about what I’m experiencing, but what’s cathartic about it sometimes is that it isn’t. For me personally it doesn’t help to write about what’s going on, it’s much more helpful to...not escape, but let my subconscious lead the way into some world that I’m creating out of whatever state I’m in.
