On August 18th, Brooklyn’s own electro pop-rock artist Sandflower hosted a private EP Release Party at Mr. Chow’s so that New York media and music elites can get a sneak peek at her 16-song album, “The Quantum Seed”. In attendance was her producer David Sisko and founder and creator of Spray Ground David BenDavid. Also, in attendance were media mogul Rae Holliday and celebrity photographers Stefan Bunbury, Christopher Claxton, Hijo, and Johhny Nunez. Toward the end of the evening, Sandflower expressed her gratitude for everyone’s support. She stated, “I feel so blessed to have the opportunity to work in a creative community”. Thank you Sandflower for taking the time to speak with us and allowing everyone to get to know you as the artist that you are.
We are here to celebrate you Sandflower, can you tell us more about your creative process in making “The Quantum Seed”?
My creative process is fun and chaotic. I love to pull inspiration from history and the past. The album is called “The Quantum Seed” because I love science and the universe. I meditate every day. There’s a mystical quality to it. My process usually begins with meditation or a bath just to quiet my mind. Then, I have a beat I get straight to writing. If I want to design something then I draw and if I want to paint then I start there. If I’m painting I might get the inspiration from the song then it would go to what I want to wear for the video I want to do. So, I am always thinking about the visual aspects of music.
You mentioned earlier that you meditate, how did that start?
My mom is a huge inspiration. She started doing meditation with me as a kid and we would go to different meditation centers to guide us. When I was older I attended a super competitive school and my mom could see that it was taking a toll on my creative soul. So, she would make me meditate every day before I left so I can center myself. Everyone should try it because it only makes your life better.
That sounds amazing and I’m going to give meditation another try. The Quantum Seed is a visual album, how does that work?
So, I basically started recording music videos for different songs to release traditionally one after another with the album. That’s not what I wanted to do. I want to do it my way. I want people to know the vibe of what I’m going for because my music is very electric. I want to give people a base to understand me. I don’t look how I sound so I want to give people a little bit of an introduction to who I am.
What’s your favorite track on the album?
Right now I think “Bump” is my favorite because it’s up-tempo. Most of my music is that way. I like my heart racing. The song is a good anthem for parties, staying hype on the train, and if you need to uplift yourself.
Do you write your own music?
Yes, I write my own music and love working with my producer David Sisko. Our process is really simple because neither of us nor any other writers that I work with, we don’t make each other try to sound like anyone else. That’s the number one foundation. You be you and I’ll be me.
Lastly, has where you come from, Brooklyn, impacted your music?
Absolutely, I come from Brownsville and it is and still is a challenging neighborhood but that has given me the inspiration that I needed to push through. You have to be 100 percent of yourself and that’s exactly what I am giving.
