Futuremag Music: Hey PNK FME, how's things?
PNK FME: Things have been great, just been doing my thing, I guess!
Futuremag Music: In your eyes, how important is the relationship between music and visuals?
PNK FME: To be honest, it has a massive role to play! Something visual brings what you are hearing to life essentially and to see a story truly expressed sonically and to have a visual just amplifies it out of this world.
Futuremag Music: Could you talk us through your studio set up? What are some of your favourite pieces of gear?
PNK FME: Ooooo this is a good question, because there are so many. I would have to say a few of them are my studio monitors and I absolutely love them, my new Nanoleaf lights are honestly amazing and mind blowing; I can’t believe I didn’t have a pair already as they transform the room. I also love my keyboard too, mainly because I adore playing keys.
Futuremag Music: You mentioned Nanoleaf? How does the interactive lighting impact your writing process?
PNK FME: A lot! It allows me to see how I am affecting a space visually from something sonically based and it can take you on an honest journey. Nanoleaf lights are amazing!
Futuremag Music: Talking about writing, what does the future hold for the PNK FME project?
PNK FME: A fair few are on their way to the big wide world in terms of songs and lately I have been writing from 100% truth which has been tough as it can be confronting. It has been the best change I have had in a while and cannot wait to share with everyone.
