Tell us about:
Your latest single you have released:
My Sting Machines is a song I wrote while thinking about being judged. Not in the sense that the judgement was either good or bad but being judged nonetheless. Being looked at and being judged. I wrote a few versions but the strongest thing that stuck through and remains is the piano melody that runs through the track, everything built around that.
Your first single and how you felt when it was released:
The first single I ever released was called CD Green, I felt happy with the name of the track. It felt right.
Your favourite song that you have created that is an album track:
My favourite song that was created as part of my first album Sew would have to be the song Fresh Orange. This was one that came together very naturally. In fact, I was testing some new software for an audio software company, and it was in the early early stages of development, which meant that it was easy to get some artefacts in the audio. I picked this up and used it to manipulate a short clip I wrote some years ago. The whole thing came together quite quickly. But I would say that I find the accidental nature of the track endearing.
The song that was the longest to write and why?
The longest song to write is always something with a lot of tracks. Sometimes, I am working on a track and the track count goes up like a kid trying to get cookies from the shelf but it is out of reach. There is no surefire reason why this is. I feel that I might be holding onto ideas that are not working. Trying to make them work. If I accept that they are not what I am looking for, I also have to do a lot of rewriting. But ultimately, time is good. Time and distance are friends and they give perspective.
Your most emotional track:
I am writing a track right now about not accepting happiness when it is presented to you. And it feels emotional.
A song by another artist or band you wish you had written:
If I were to wish, I wish I were to have the vocal range of Sly Stone.
What we can look forward to from your band this year:
More videos and new stories culminating toward the album release towards the end of the year.
