INTERVIEW – Daisy Clark Talks About ‘Hope It Hurts You’

Songstress Daisy Clark has just dropped her heart-wrenching new single “Hope It Hurts You.” The track is now available to stream on Spotify!

“Hope It Hurts You” is an incredible break-up bop that is bound to relate to anyone who hears it. The acoustic guitar blends with Daisy’s stunning vocals so perfectly that it creates the most charming masterpiece. You can hear that the single is filled with so much emotion, you might end up hating an ex you’ve never even had!

The track was produced at Miloco Studio in London and produced by Daniel Moyler – who has worked with the likes of, Dua Lipa, Bebe Rexha, Jack Savoretti, amongst some other massive names in the music industry.

Here is what Daisy Clark said when we got in touch to talk about the new single, future plans that she may have, and more!:

Hi Daisy! Thank you for taking time out of your day to have a chat with us. We hope you’re doing well!

Of course, and thank you so much. I’m well, and super excited about my new song!

Congratulations on the release of your new single “Hope It Hurts You.” Why don’t you start by telling us a bit about it?

Hope It Hurts You is a very honest and raw account of dealing with betrayal and heartbreak. It shares all the heartbreaking feelings, but also the realisation that you deserve so much better and will move on to better things.

Could you describe the writing process for us? How did you go from just an idea of a song, to the final product? Does this change with every song you write?

This song flew out of me. The meaning of the song was very raw in the moment of writing about it so I knew everything I needed to say in the song. Every song is different but I think what I love about this one is you can hear the authenticity and honesty through the lyrics and with it being stripped back with me and my guitar.

The response I got when I shared it on YouTube was incredible.

I then played the song live at The Bedford in-between lockdowns in London. I was in the studio that week too recording with Daniel Moyler and he watched me perform the song live and said to me after ‘Lets record that first thing tomorrow’, and the song was born!

How would you describe your overall sound?

I’d describe my sound as indie/pop, with the occasional acoustic vibe thrown in! I like to keep authentic sounds such as guitar/piano in my songs and love keeping things stripped back but definitely have enjoyed experimenting with more synthesised elements recently.

What is the main message you want listeners to take from “Hope It Hurts You”?

I hope it gives comfort to those going through something similar to know they are not alone, and we will all get through it together. I also hope it gives someone who has been betrayed or is in a toxic relationship the courage to leave and realise their worth. 

If we told you to write a song based on what you are feeling right now, what would the song be about?

Honestly, the song would probably be Hope It Hurts You, haha!

I think it would be a mixture – with it being lockdown and going through a lot of changes it would definitely have some emotions there, but also it would have a lot of optimism. I have a lot of incredible things to look forward to and a lot to be grateful for right now!

This has been an extremely difficult year for everybody. A lot of people have been finding it hard to stay positive and motivated. How have you been able to keep motivated? Can you share any tips?

I have been keeping motivated by calling my friends a lot. Having FaceTime dates and talking through things I find helps keep me positive and in a better mindset to say motivated.

What advice would you give to someone who wants to start a career in music, but might be too scared to?

I would say life is too short to be afraid! It always sounds cheesy, but I do believe you have to follow your passions, and you can achieve anything you set your mind to. Making music is wonderful and I encourage you!

We would really like to know who you would love to work with someday. Who would your dream collaboration be and why?

There are so many people. But the ultimate dream would be Taylor Swift. She’s just a songwriting genius and she got me into picking up the guitar and writing my own music. Speak Now was my favourite album growing up and really inspired me.

We also want to know who you have been listening to lately. Can you recommend to our readers your top 5 most played artists/songs that are currently on your playlist?

Holly Humberstone – Falling Asleep At The Wheel

Tate McRae – Don’t Be Sad

Role Model – Blind

Orla Gartland – Pretending

Mae Muller – Anticlimax (a real good one if you’re coming out of a Hope It Hurts You situation)

Finally, can you tell us of any future plans? What do you have coming for 2021?

I’m so excited for 2021! I have two other tracks coming out that I recorded that week in London with Dan Moyler. I absolutely love them and I’m so excited to share them!

And hopefully we may be able to see some live music? I can’t wait to get performing again.

Daisy Clark and “Hope It Hurts You” deserves some of your loving! The track truly is simplistic, yet beautiful, and so easy to appreciate – so be sure to head over to Spotify and give it a listen!
