Lights on her new album, making comic books and the joy of touring

“Even before the pandemic I wanted to write something that uplifted me, and make me feel like a boss instead of dwelling on the things that make me sad. You are prone to believe the things you tell yourself and when I look in the mirror and tell myself I don’t like myself, I’m going to believe it.  So now I look at myself in the mirror and talk myself up and it works. Pep is this dichotomy of uplifting boss bitch lyrics on a backdrop of cynicism and misery.”
