How Does It Feel? was inspired by Sappho’s Fragment 31, drawing on the theme of forbidden love and jealousy. The lyrics centre on the overwhelming emotions that come with unrequited love - doubt, denial, hope and hopelessness. "How Does It Feel? is a song I feel really proud of. I’d been reading up on Sappho’s poetry and as soon as I head Hangi’s beat, the lyrics just fell onto the page," lottie said. She continued, "I studied poetry at university and found that it has really benefitted my songwriting. Incorporating the work of an LGBTQ+ icon such as Sappho really helped to add a new element to my writing." The song has a melancholic feel, with lingering verses that build to a powerful chorus.
lottie, together with Hangi Tavakoli, is currently working on her debut album which will be released later this year.
