Tell us a few things about your new song “Beast” . What is the main idea behind it?
Beast is about addiction, I’m talking about the feeling of when you know that you need to escape a vicious unhealthy loop but it’s too scary and painful to move away. In my case it was a toxic relationship and all I could think of was to see this addiction as a beast, you know it’s wrong and harmful, yet it can also be this fluffy and misleadingly comfortable, safe place to stay in, because at times it’s really good.
Which is your most personal and honest lyric?
In Beast it would be ‘I move forward then get kidnapped, my voice weakens forgetting my escape, all I knew is what I wanted to hold on to’
Favourite album of the past decade?
Difficult to say but if I had to choose only one I’d say Choose Your Weapon – Hiatus Kaiyote they always blow my mind.
Is Spotify the music industry’s new Gatekeepers?
I hope not or us artists are all screwed and remain broke forever. I like to think artists can have more control over their music and how it’s given to their fans through channels like Bandcamp and Patreon, that’s how I try to promote my music.
When not writing music, how do you spend your time?
I love spending time with dogs, I know it sounds strange but I dog sit and have long walks in nature! I feel in the moment and my mind relaxes. I also love to see friends, read, run!
When was the last time you danced?
At my friend’s house party a couple of weeks ago! There is nothing better than a house party, you get to chose who comes at the party, the music you want and let your self go without spending a fortune!
