Tell us about:
Your latest single you have released:
I have reworked a 2020 song called “2nd Wave Rave”, which lyrically I felt needed updating now that we’re able to gig again. This new version is redefined ages, better mixed, louder, more vocals, new lyrics etc. It should be out now with Spotify, Apple, Amazon etc.
Your first single and how you felt when it was released:
My first single was “Piece Of Shame” from the first EP “Share If You Agree”. As I look back now, it is so far away from the direction I’ve ended up heading, but it needed to be made. I was trying to redefine myself away from both a previous solo project and my other band I’m still in. It was a shock to the system for myself and anyone who knew me, but it did help me understand what Vulgarithm was and what it has now become.
Your favourite song that you have created that is an album track:
Vulgarithm hasn’t made an album yet, but there have been 3 EPs. It is a really hard one though as it always depends on my mood. My proudest song would probably be “Out My Way!” as that is the one that people on most drawn to and had the most traction.
Your favourite song to play live:
Vulgarithm has been in existence for nearly 18 months and has not been able to perform in public but we played our first live shows in August.
Your most emotional track:
that would have to be “I can only find nothing”. It’s a song that I wrote when I had what can be best described as chronic apathy. All the lyrics were written no earlier than 2am so that gives you a sense of where I was.
The best lyric you have ever written:
“Hypocrisy is the fuel for survival” the state of the world is pretty horrific, even when there isn’t coronavirus destroying peoples lives. It really doesn’t help when people in power are changing opinions and denying every lie they have ever mentioned, even when there is unequivocal proof of it.
Describe the feeling you get when you walk on stage to do a show:
Speaking of previous experience, it’s a great feeling on two fronts. Firstly, if they are there to see you, you know everyone is gonna have a good time. However if they have never heard of you, this is your opportunity to blow their mind.
The hardest track to play live:
That would have to be “The Vulgar Rhythm”. As I said before I’ve played live yet, but I have been rehearsing with that song first, and that is a very intense song to open with so I have to be on it, as do my wrists.
Essential items you always take on tour with you?
Not done touring yet with Vulgarithm, but I would need some access to binge watching, as I won’t have that much time for downtime.
Describe your fans in three words:
Not that many (hahahaha)
A song by another artist or band you wish you had written:
soooooooo many to choose from. I’ll go with “Hurt” by NIN as not only is it a phenomenal song but also it gets covered by the greatest artists who ever live.
What we can look forward to from your band this year:
LIVE MUSIC, finally! I’ve waiting for this for so long, the time has finally come. I’ll make sure it is not an anti climax. Meet me on the dance pit!
