Independent artist Antigoni recently graced the stage of Headliner’s live music venue The Pioneer Club to perform her new single Over acoustically, complete with an LD Systems’ MAUI G3 rig and Mon 15 A G3 Stage Monitors. Here, she joins us for a chat after her performance to discuss her career to date, the impact of her time on Love Island, and what she’s been working on this year…
What have you been up to these past few months?
I’ve just been putting the final touches to my EP, which has just come out and is called Hexagon, and the lead single is called Over. It’s probably one of my favourite songs I’ve written and released. We shot a video for it in Mykonos. The song sounds to me like a Greek island, so it was only right that we filmed it on one! And all the other songs on the EP are singles I’ve been releasing recently, so I wanted to bring them together in one cohesive space. That’s been my main focus, as well as getting ready to move to Greece.
Tell us about Over, the lead single and the song you just performed for us.
Over is a song about one of those situations where something ends prematurely and you are left feeling disappointed by somebody, and like you were onto something really good. But it’s not a bitter or angry feeling, it’s that you’re hurt and feel like you had a good thing. I find the song quite melancholy because even though it’s sad there is warmth in it. I think a lot of people can understand that situation.
