How do you usually write the lyrics of your songs?

I usually write them after I have I’m done with the basic composition of the song. There are several things I want to say with Wet Dreams, so I try to choose a topic that fits with the general “feel” of the song.

 

In your opinion, what is the most important thing in songwriting?

I really don’t think lyrics are that important in Rock music, so I try to focus on the music. But I try to have a humoristic tone. One of my favorite albums in that sense is the “Jingles” album from Mean Jeans. Funny as hell!

 

Are you ever scared of revealing aspects of your personal life/experience to strangers through your music?

Not really. What I want is for people to find their own meaning through the lyrics. Sometimes I get disappointed when I read the lyrics of my favorite albums. They’re usually pretty shit. ☺

 

What is the best lyric that you ever wrote (the most meaningful for you)?

My current favorite is “Boys” from the latest record with my other band, Death By Unga Bunga.

 

What inspired “Bad Boy”, your latest single?

That is inspired by the overly masculine male culture that still is going strong against all odds. In the song, I take the role of a classic “bro” talking about how much he loves himself.

What are your plans for 2019? We’re excited for the new album in March!

We’re gonna do a lot of shows in and outside of Norway, and have as much fun as we can along the way.

 

Is there a common theme/link between all the songs of the album?

Not really. I think of it more as a collection of songs that I wrote from 2015 to 2017. One of them is about the state of Norwegian rock’n’roll, several of them is about a guy who tried to make my life miserable (unsuccessfully), and a couple of them is about my girlfriend and how much I love her.
