Emily Daccarett Talks of the Details Behind Her Creativeness

EMILY DACCARETT is a designer, whose craft takes from designing various things, to recording music, in which she has released her first EP available now! She goes into details about her creativity and how far it can and will take her mind, body, and soul!

1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

I’m a fashion designer and I have always used music and film as my inspiration. I came to LA to start my women's wear brand and debuted my first collection during LA fashion week. At this time, I produced a fashion film in collaboration with Tiger House films to kick start the fashion show, and worked with film music composer S. Peace Nistades on an original song for my short film. I fell in love with writing music and it became a staple of my fashion shows to create original music. After some time I felt a need to blend the music I created with my fashion brand that exceeded just the runway shows. I finally stopped telling myself that I had to stay in one lane and really myself the opportunity to pursue this dream I had try to bury. I decided the best way to do this was to learn how to produce music on my own in order to create my songs the same way I design my collections. I was set on finding my sound and that piece of me that I was missing. After working on my demos, I went back to Peace and we worked on my EP Cannibal.

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

The EP's title is not the band's name. For each song I wanted to illustrate an anime inspired mascot. Cannibal girl was the first one I drew and after spending so much time on her, it felt so right to name the EP Cannibal. Cannibal is also the title of the second song in my EP, which is about how the doubts and fears we feel can turn us into a cannibal and tear us apart.

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

I’m based out LA. I love it here; it’s filled with so many talented people. Coming here I have had the chance to collaborate with an array of different artists. It’s a great place to find up and coming bands. I love going to The Mint, Hotel Café, The Study to hear new bands. I’ve gone to see Illicit for some great rock as well as Foolish Deep. Every week there are so many acts to choose from, all you have to do is pick a genre and call an uber.

4. How would you describe your style?

My style is a blend of 80's synth pop with a cinematic sound. Think of Blondie and David Lynch having a baby in 2020 and that's the direction my music takes.

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

I have done some retro French pop songs in the style of Carla Bruni and Vanessa Paradis. I love the 70’s and greatly romanticize everything out of that era. It felt like me at the time and you can still hear ties to that style with my new music. The new songs that I’m about to release have a more modern direction and I wanted to give it the energy and excitement you feel from watching runway show.

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

I have my first ever EP out now! I’m so excited to finally share what I’ve been working on this past year.

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

I’m planning on doing some small shows in LA to promote the EP and have already started working on my next fashion show/live show scheduled for March 2020.

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

I'm starting a new chapter that includes my fashion, strong visual imagery along with being a musical artist. I love the idea of Los Angeles in the late 60's with so many artists coming together for fun and creating. I'm trying to recreate that feeling today by having it be more than just music but also an experience. By hosting fashion and live music events, I hope to tap into that Sharon Tate and Mama Cass vibe. I want it to feel intimate not just another gig to see. 

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

On November 22nd my EP will be streaming on all major platforms. You can keep up to date by going to www.emilydaccarettmusic.com, where I’ll post the latest music and upcoming events. I also have an online store on that site and merch with my anime inspired mascots will be available soon. I have some cool exclusive Ep stuff as well. On www.emilydaccarett.com you can find my fashion brand, which also includes a line of unisex accessories.

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

I want them to feel happy and for that moment be taken to some lost part of their imagination.
