"Am I crazy for thinking we could make it, baby?"
When does excitement and attraction become unhealthy infatuation? What is the line between a crush and an obsession? In "(I'm) Crazy," pop artist Vanalika Shan explores these questions in dreamy, vibe-y detail, using a driving beat and enchanting harmonies to obscure what she calls an "ethereal nightmare." In this episode, Vanalika talks about writing songs as a character, asking social questions in music, and using lyrics to explore the human condition. Emmeline and Vanalika also talk about the journey from piano ballad to pop anthem and how one can use music to set a scene.
