If the addictive “Enough of You” tickles your fancy, then just wait for what she has up her sleeve for the EP. Keep reading to find out what Woods told EUPHORIA. about “Enough of You” and Heartbreak County.
What inspired you to write your new single, “Enough of You?”
All of the songs on Heartbreak County are inspired by my life growing up in LA. “Enough of You” is specifically inspired by the many kinds of addiction LA is filled with. Alcohol, drugs, sex, fame, glamour, all of it! There’s a lot of codependency going on in this city. I see people fall into the LA trap of chasing after the highs all the time. As much as I sometimes think I need a break, I also can’t get enough.
What are you hoping listeners will take away from the song?
My hope is that people will feel like they’re not alone. I also hope they dance, feel euphoric, and have a cathartic moment of ecstasy. I think that feeling of knowing something isn’t necessarily good for you, but wanting to keep that thing in your life anyway, whether it’s a relationship, a city, or anything else, is a universal feeling we can all relate to.
What was it about the track that made you want it to serve as the lead single for your new EP?
“Enough of You” was the first song I wrote that really launched me into this new era and it’s remained one of my favorites from the beginning. Sonically it’s heavily inspired by Madonna and Daft Punk, two of my all-time favorite artists, and it really set the tone for everything else that followed. Everything about it, from the production to the lyrics, inspired the rest of the EP. It’s the best introduction to Heartbreak County.
