“That song, I wrote seven years ago, which I only realised when I looked on my YouTube and saw an acoustic version I was playing. It was this song that had no home, just this bastard child of a thing that had no place. It was a good place to start. I had no idea I was making an album - I just wanted a song I could destroy. ‘Why don’t I rip out this guitar part and throw in a synth instead? Take out this and throw in violins here…’ I totally mangled it, basically, and I ended up loving it.”
“This time, because it’s a full-band thing, I’m dying to play it live, so it’s a balls. But at the same time, if I’d people around me, I don’t know would it have come out as fast. I prefer writing with people, but it takes time to go back and forth with people, respecting their input as well.”
