On the royal note, if you were a king, what would your kingdom be like?
My kingdom would be very chill and unpretentious. And no one would kill or eat animals.
How do you know when a track is finished?
I don’t. And some tracks are probably meant to be, you know, forever unfinished. Just because it’s released on Spotify or pressed on vinyl doesn’t mean it’s finished. I’d say the remix culture we’re living in is an amazing expression of that.
What does your music sound like?
Like nothing else out there, and at the same time like everything else. My music is super personal, yet in music, nothing is unique. When I was a kid, I only listened to rap and wanted to be a rap star. Today, I find inspiration everywhere and I’m into whatever makes me move, or whatever moves me emotionally.
Besides music, who inspires you the most?
I get most of my inspo from my family and my mother in particular. She’s just so powerful and creative and she spoils me with inspiration.
She came up with your name?
Yeah, I’m not sure where Anfa comes from exactly and my mom’s not either. Probably an Afro-Iranian thing, all I know is that she wanted to name me something unique. We are six siblings in total, I was the last one.
