As the world goes deeper into self-isolation, it is important to keep the lines of communication open and continue to support each other as much as we possibly can.
Acid Stag has launched a new series titled “CABIN FEVER” where we ask artists from all over the world to give us some insight into how self-isolation has affected their creativity and mental health, and also ask what they have/will be doing to keep their sanity and creativity flowing through these difficult times.
Today we check in with Australian indie/electronic music duo dekleyn!
What is your current situation; are you at home alone, with family, or friends?
dekleyn: We are both at home with family.
Have you been dealing with any mental health issues as a result of this isolation?
dekleyn: We have been trying to stay connected with the outside world as much as possible to avoid any issues with isolation breakdown! We are both still working so getting out of the house everyday keeps us sane.
What have you been doing to manage your mental state (e.g. meditation, yoga, writing music etc).
dekleyn: We have been working on a whole bunch of new tunes which has kept us both extremely occupied and focused during these times which is a huge blessing for us both.
Have you tried collaborating with other artists online, and if that is a yes, do you feel this has helped you feel less isolated & confined?
dekleyn: We haven’t managed to collaborate with other artists online yet, however we’ve been able to collaborate together online working on a track which has kept us both busy whilst being isolated.
Do you have any words of wisdom that you would like to share with fellow artists and your fans?
dekleyn: Stay safe, stay healthy, do plenty of exercise, and stay home where possible!
6. What is your “go-to” song right now?
dekleyn: Mutual Love by Shallou and Zachary Knowles is a must- hear!
