17 year old Ethan Sak Talks With TMI About The Music Video For His New Single “Make My Heart Go”
How excited are you that this song is finally out?!?
“I’m so excited that it’s finally out for everyone one to hear it! It’s definitely a song and production I’m very proud of.”
What has been your reaction to all the success the single has been having?
“I’m just astonished. All this work that my team and I have been putting in is starting to pay off and I couldn’t be more thrilled!”
What does this song mean to you?
“I had just gotten over my first high school crush, and I was trying to summarize my feelings that I still had for her. I guess that, to me, it represents my first time successfully putting down words of love to music.”
Can you tell us the meaning behind the song?
“If you look closely to the lyrics, you’ll see that everything the singer is experiencing isn’t all great. They’re being utterly and totally consumed by infatuation for their crush, and they couldn’t care less! Other than the hints of insanity that we chose to accentuate in the video, it’s just a simple confession of love?”
How did the idea for this song come about?
“I was experimenting on my computer late at night when I came up with really laid back organ chord progression, that I quickly put a beat to. I had the whole verse through chorus finished within the next hour, and completed the song out early the next day.”
What’s the process of writing one of your songs?
“It depends greatly on the type of song I’m writing. Sometimes, I come up with one chord progression and all of the lyrics and melodies will flow out of me within 30 minutes. Other times, I’ll come with a lyric and melody first, then the chord progression, and it’ll take me a day or so to finish. Most often, however, I just write a lyric or two down and never think about them again.”
Are you excited to start performing your new single live?
“I am so ecstatic and anxious to have the opportunity to share this song with so many people. I want to make sure that the audience gets more than just the song if they come to see me live!”
You also just released the music video for your new single, how did the idea for the music video come about?
“Well, like I mentioned earlier, there are some glimmers into insanity through obsession in the lyrics, so we just grabbed onto that. The team of videographers and dancers I worked with were absolutely amazing, and everyone came through on the project in some beautiful way!”
Are there any other projects in the works you can tell us about?
“I’m currently working on finishing up the last two songs for my upcoming EP, another two music videos, and much more coming soon after?”
Do you have any last things you want to tell your supporters?
“Everything I’ve done up to this point will only get better, and I just want everyone to be there when I’m finally ready to share all of it! I promise that you’ll love it!“
Thanks for taking the time to answer these questions!
“Thanks for the interview, it’s been fun!”
