Little Lapin - Little Lapin Newsletter Interview

28 Apr 2013 // An interview by Shade
 

Little Lapin is a Raglan based indie-pop singer/songwriter. To date, Little Lapin has independently filmed 4 music videos, recorded an EP and her vocals have featured on a theme song for a prime time TV1 programme in NZ. Her single Waiting Room has been chosen to feature on Under the Radar's (USA) digital sampler for their Winter 2013 edition and she has been tipped as an artist to watch this year.

Lucy answered the following questions for muzic.net.nz:

How did you come up with the name Little Lapin?
 
I wanted a stage name that people have to think about plus I like winding up Kiwis about their accents and I have heard some pretty funny ways of lapin being pronounced. It should be pronounced lapan as it is french for rabbit. A friend at school gave me the nickname little lapin lupe lu so it is a diminutive of this name. Most people like it and find it really cute.

What can we expect to see from Little Lapin over the next year?

At the moment I am concentrating on getting the live act going as up until now I have been performing as a solo act which can get really lonesome and sometimes you just crave the buzz of having some like-minded musicians on stage with you. I plan to leave my hometown Raglan and move to Auckland in the very near future as I have an Auckland based band which is made up of some extremely talented musicians (I am keeping them a secret for now)! We are hoping to be performance ready in the next few months so we can tour off the back of my debut EP Little Lapin.

I would be extremely happy if by this time next year Little Lapin had played at some major Kiwi festivals and had sold a few thousand copies of her EP!

What sets you apart from other bands?

I suppose being a pom sets me apart from other kiwi bands although I am a NZ resident so this is definitely my home now. I'm originally from Plymouth in the UK and moved to Raglan nearly four years ago. Originally it was the surf that brought me to Raglan and now all my time is spent on music. NZ will always be a special place for me as it is the place I was able to spread my wings. I used to be really shy about my music and would only sing in private which makes me even more determined to get my music out there now.  

Where do you get your inspiration to create music from?

Conversations, emotions, memories, experiences, stories, people, places, travelling, you name it there is a song in everything.

Do you have any plans for future collaborations with other musicians.

Yes I am always thinking of the next project and when my debut EP has had time to settle into people's lives, I plan to collaborate with a very talented songwriter, singer, musician and producer for my next EP.
