Stephanie Poetri releases second song ‘How We Used To’

Indonesian-American singer, songwriter and producer, Stephanie Poetri today releases, “How We Used To”, her second single off her forthcoming EP ‘AM : PM’, via 88rising, distributed by 12Tone Music. Listen HERE. To complement the single, Stephanie has also dropped the music video for “How We Used To” today. Watch it HERE. Produced by Doc Daniel (Pink Sweat$, Tate McRae, Dominic Fike) and Mason Sacks (Kaash Paige, Masego), the music video highlights Stephanie as she navigates a surreal dream space of a bedroom where she reflects and comes to terms with big changes in her life. In an intimate monologue, Stephanie reveals the hesitations and hardships of moving halfway across the world to pursue her career as an artist.

Speaking on “How We Used To”, Stephanie says, “’How We Used To’ was the very first song that I wrote after I moved to the US to pursue my career as an artist. I was feeling so many emotions, all positive but when I had the time to slow down ,sit down and songwrite I was able to process my hesitations and doubts at the time – emotions outside of this crazy excitement and adrenaline. It was a lot to take in, and I was moving halfway across the world away from home and so many loved ones to pursue my passion, dreams and career. I wouldn’t change anything for the world and am so lucky in so many ways to have had the opportunities I have, but I look back on this song fondly as it helped me understand my full range of emotions with a big step in my life”

Scheduled to release this year, ‘AM : PM’ manifests Stephanie’s light hearted daydreams and solemn midnight queries in the form of a musical project. The flow of the tracklist represents the duality between emotions that can arise during the morning (hopeful, energized, love) versus the evening (in your feelings, somber, melancholy). Starting with bright acoustic sounds and harmonies then leading into elements of R&B (soft guitar and bass), ‘AM : PM’ transitions seamlessly from day to night sonically when you listen to the tracks from top to bottom.

Stream/download “How We Used To” HERE, out now via Infinite Thrills/88rising Records, distributed by 12Tone Music.
