We hear below from Cupnoodle as she tells us more about the story behind the song.

1) What is ‘Piece Of Mind’ about and inspired by?

Piece of Mind is a bedroom pop, early 2000s RnB track with a slice of drum and bass influence, exploring emotional and mental well-being. The song highlights the importance of mental peace over perfection through candid lyrics and witty melodies.

In the first verse, it talks about seeking a partner who offers stability and genuine support. The pre-chorus reflects on past struggles with societal expectations, describing them as “boxes that turn me into its hostage.”

The chorus is the song’s anthem, emphasizes the essential need for peace of mind with lines like “I don’t want nobody living rent free in my mind” and “I don’t have that kind of money to be wasting time.” Illustrating a conscious decision to prioritize mental health and personal well-being over external validation and unnecessary drama.

The second verse embraces imperfections and self-acceptance, seeking authentic connections. The lyrics, “Trust me I know I’m no angel” and “Not asking for perfect people,” reinforce the theme of embracing one’s true self and seeking authentic connections.

2) How would you describe the sound of ‘Piece Of Mind’.

The mix of bedroom pop, early 2000s R&B, and drum and bass creates a unique sound that makes for intimate, lo-fi melodies with smooth, nostalgic rhythms and high-energy beats.

This fusion results new yet familiar vibe, combining the introspective and mellow sound of bedroom pop with the catchy groove of R&B and the upbeat, quirky drive of drum and bass.

It’s girlie yet universal, perfect for a drive with the sunroof down.
