"Lexxi Raine Fun While It Lasted Interview"

Question: Can you tell us about Fun While It Lasted?

Lexxi Raine: Women in music are often made fun of for writing too many love songs or claimed to only be capable of writing songs about guys. That's definitely not true, but I took those stereotypes and ran with it. FWIL is a concept album all about love and its many different facets. There are so many different ways to love someone and the beginning of every relationship has a reason, whether it stemmed from hope, desperation, excitement, jealousy, or a myriad of others. Sometimes there's not even a relationship involved and we decide to love ourselves instead. Love can end in the blink of an eye, making you question why it even started. The most important thing to remember is that everything in life, especially love, is fun while it lasted.

Question: How would you describe your music?

Lexxi Raine: I didn't know how to answer that question for years and that's never a good way to catch someone's interest. It finally hit me after writing my latest album that my music sounds as if Avril Lavigne wrote Taylor Swift's love songs. The lyrics I write could probably fit well in any one of Swift's songs, but each have a pop-punk twist that gives it an edge and feels like it could have been played with the other women fronted bands of the 80s. I always say I was born in the wrong decade!

Question: Do you prefer performing live or recording?

Lexxi Raine: I definitely like performing live better. I play off the audience's vibe (which isn't great at a coffee shop with three people). When they're enjoying my music, I enjoy it more, too. I feel like I can express the emotion I felt when writing that song a lot better.

Question: What's the story behind What The Lonely People Do?

Lexxi Raine: Rebounds aren't always a great idea. It's not fair to the person you're using to get over somebody else but, hey, we're all guilty of this. "Using" somebody in this case doesn't have to mean physically, either. Getting the attention from someone you don't really have feelings for online, in person, or over texting can all be lumped into the category of not being a good person. "What The Lonely People Do" is about this emotion. I had a relationship end unexpectedly and I was searching for anyone to fill the void and give me attention so I didn't feel so low. "WTLPD" assumes that the guy knows he's being used but is okay with it because he hopes that sooner or later, she will realise that she has true feelings for him and a true relationship could be the outcome. The song ends in a cliffhanger so who knows how the story ended?

Question: What motivates you most when writing music?

Lexxi Raine: Everyday life. The most random thought or tiniest incident can inspire a full song. I was in London this fall and I saw a cute guy in the audience. I had never met him before and didn't get a chance to talk to him but sure enough, he got a song written about him called "Mr. John Doe" and he'll never know. The people I surround myself with are huge inspirations when writing music. If you're in my life, you'll probably get a song written about you one day. You just have to make sure it's a good one!

Question: Which music/artists are you currently listening to?

Lexxi Raine: My top played artists at the moment are Keaton Henson, Camilla Cebello, Taylor Swift, Twenty One Pilots, and All Time Low.

Question: What or who was your inspiration to go into the music industry?

Lexxi Raine: Avril! My earliest memory of "performing" is singing her debut album "Let Go" wearing my Burger King headset into my Barbie camcorder. I thought she was the coolest person on the planet and before her, I didn't realise girls could rock out on a guitar and wear punk clothing. She inspired me to write music and express yourself any way you wanted.

Question: If you could collaborate with another artist, who would it be?

Lexxi Raine: Again, Avril. If I had to choose a different person, it would be Brendon Urie from Panic! At the Disco. I've loved his music for almost as long as Avril. I'm fascinated by how much his music has changed throughout every album over the years and I think I could really learn a lot from him and become a better artist.

Question: What's a typical day like?

Lexxi Raine: I recently came back from a tour in the UK so at the moment I am a full-time musician trying to hit it big. I wake up every morning and get on my laptop. I spend up to 14 hours a day submitting my EPK to record labels, bloggers, and searching for local venues to play. A lot of people don't understand how much work actually goes into making a name for yourself. Every evening I head to band practice, the recording studio, or a 3-4 hour gig. It's never a dull or relaxing day for me!

Question: What has been your favourite part of becoming a music artist?

Lexxi Raine: My favorite part is definitely not the amount of money or security that comes with it. More than anything, I love when people come up to me after a show and tell me how much they liked a song I wrote. Even people commenting on a video I put on YouTube and saying that my song made them feel something makes me want to keep going. I get so happy when someone tells me they could relate to the lyrics or something I said helped them in their daily life. Making a difference is the most rewarding part of writing music. Being a musician is a hard to career and breaking into the business is even harder, but I could never forgive myself if I stopped.

"Fun While It Lasted by Lexxi Raine"

What the world needs now is love. After all, without love what would the songwriters of the world of today and yesterday write about? That is perhaps a question for the philosophers amongst you but in the meantime, we have “Fun While it Lasted” by New York’s Lexxi Raine to consider.

Sure enough, she does the usual girl and acoustic guitar thing with “Body” and “Fire & Ice” but she is clearly not content to simply wear her heart on the sleeve and call it an organic soya latte day. For one thing, she has a rather more perceptive take on matters of the heart in these halcyon days and has no problem putting her thoughts into song with “He Says She Says” being the prime example of this. Throw in some fuzzed up guitars, breathless charm and pure eighties retro stylisations – much as Peach Kelli Pop or The Aquadolls also do – and the result is as radio friendly as it would have been if it had been released in 1989.

So, as you might have expected, Lexxi Raine does indeed write songs about love but she does so with less introspection and more analysis than most do. That makes “Fun While It Lasted” a much more enjoyable listen than I had expected. I think I shall put this one on repeat. - Bluesbunny Music Reviews



MOXIE - 2017

Fun While It Lasted - 2019




Lexxi Raine is a singer-songwriter from Buffalo, NY, who has always been passionate about music. She formed her first band at the age of 16 through Craigslist in 2012 and has remained in the music industry ever since. In 2015, her original band, Avidd the Band, released their first professionally recorded album, Avidd the Album, along with her first music video to the hit single, "The Sappy Song". In 2016, Lexxi Raine decided to start a solo side project to keep her songwriting thriving through multiple band member changes. She released her first solo EP, MOXIE in 2017 along with a music video to the single, "Stop!". Since MOXIE hit the charts, Lexxi has been tirelessly working on new music among the stressful time of graduating college top of her class in Forensic Chemistry and starting her career.

Fun While It Lasted is her proudest achievement. Every song was chosen to show a different facet of love: whether it's giving up on love altogether and loving yourself, using someone to get over lost love, reconnecting with someone you were always supposed to love, pleading to not give up on love, loving someone so much that you lose yourself along the way, being hopeful for the chance at new love, and being angry because someone is trying to ruin the precious love you have. Lexxi Raine has taken her music onto every social media platform with weekly YouTube videos, daily Facebook posts, Instagram photos, Twitter, tracks on Soundcloud, tiers on Patreon, and her own personal website at Lexxiraine.com. She released her most professional music video on March 23rd, 2019, "What The Lonely People Do", which shows the loneliest and deepest inner emotions of Lexxi Raine, directed by Jordan Lee Sims. This is her proudest creation yet and she is so excited for the world to see this video and share the same feelings of using someone in the hopes it will make yourself feel better.

There are so many ways to love someone, and that's the point of her second EP, Fun While It lasted. The artwork of the album represents cynicism and how the bitter reality of this world can damage something that used to be pure. An ice cream cone, once delicious and appealing, can be ruined in an instant with the wrong touch. Loving someone can start with passion, beauty, hope, and can end in the blink of an eye, making you question why it even started. The most important thing to remember is that everything in life, especially love, is fun while it lasts.
