Interview: Pop Diva Jenny March Discusses Her Infectious New Single, ‘FUWY’
Pop diva and singer/songwriter Jenny March recently unveiled her most infectious track to date — the hook-laden, euphoric single, “FUWY.” The new song has an insatiable summertime feel and describes the feeling of getting lost in the moment with the person you long for most.
I recently spoke with Jenny March about her new music and more in this exclusive interview.
What can you tell me about your new track, “FUWY?”
It’s a song about casual dating and not expecting all the formal things. When you’re both single and just enjoying each other’s company. As song about going out and having fun.
Has your songwriting process changed much over the years? Where do you draw your inspiration?
My songwriting has evolved and I draw a lot of inspiration from personal experiences, trends and other things I’ve observed. I tend to write a lot in the car. It’s my sweet spot. Whenever a melody or lyric comes I’ll stop and record it into my voice memo.
How do you know when a track is complete?
You know it when it feels right. Sometimes I may listen back to a track and then go back in the studio to change the finer details. But at the end of the day, the song has to make you feel something. If it doesn’t then you know it’s not ready.
Another recent track is “Normal In Love.” What can you tell me about it?
After I’d written “California Daze” and “Talk To Me” I was in a toxic, one-sided relationship. One where you give so much but are not getting the things you want in return. I found myself making excuses for him and realized Iwasn’t going to get what I thought would make me happy. It was unlike any relationship I’ve ever had. The day after we broke up the entire song came out all at once.
Would you consider yourself a hopeful romantic?
I know some friends of mine who are but I don’t think I’m one of them. I’m pretty chill, especially at the beginning of a relationship. But once I get into it I feel like I want to have that “old-time” kind of love. I have this bad habit of falling for broken men that I have to pick back up. Julia Michaels once said she dated men just to write songs about them. I feel like that in lot of ways [laughs].
What’s something most people don’t know about you?
I’ve been to all fifty states. It was a goal of mine when I was little and my mom and I took a lot of road trips together. Last March we hit the last two: North and South Dakota. I don’t know many people who’ve done it.
What’s your live schedule look like this year?
I’m in the process of booking more dates in L.A. and branching out from there and eventually popping on a tour with someone else.
Are there any other projects you’re working on right now?
I’m working on a lot of new material. It’s going to be the most vulnerable music I’ve ever released. I want to keep pushing boundaries and stepping out of my comfort zone. I’ve also been collaborating a lot as well.
What are you looking forward to the most about this next phase of your career?
I’m looking forward to seeing what everyone thinks about the new music and playing for more and more people. The stage is my favorite place to be.
