How do you usually write the lyrics of your songs?
They’re all one-line non-sequiturs that are in the “Notes” section of my phone. I usually get high and piece them all together. Seriously. “What I’m All About” was written with my buddy Chris and we were just spitting lines about how bored we were and then it all came together. Also, I’m a huge liar so this could possibly not be what happened/happens at all.
In your opinion, what is the most important thing in songwriting?
The song, probably.
Are you ever scared of revealing aspects of your personal life/experience to strangers through your music?
All the time.
What is the best lyric that you ever wrote (the most meaningful for you)?
It’s from a song that hasn’t come out yet. It’s something like, “Get me out of this basic life / Get me out of dodge / All of life’s sensation / has dissolved on my tongue.”
What inspired “What I’m All About”?
The years from 2009 to 2013.
What was the best moment of your career? And the most difficult one?
They haven’t happened yet.
What are your plans for 2018?
Something with purple.
