I write poetry everyday that is stream of consciousness. Then when it comes to the song writing I pick the best bits for the lyrics that fit that particular song. It’s like cut up technique except it’s not random, it’s a conscious decision to splice certain bits together. The themes are on going and tap into aspects of Dystopian society, Mythology, Biblical references. Futurism / Surrealism as well as more direct lines about love and personal experience. I am inspired by Science Fiction, Horror, Philosophy. I tend to read those kind of works and then write my own songs songs inspired by that. Some songs have multiple themes. When it comes to writing the music on an instrument, the modes are particularly inspiring and useful as a starting point. I am not afraid of dissonance and using darker chords, there is tension and resolution in our music with that. Generally speaking although we have influences we are looking to write original music and be authentic in our approach. This leads us to explore the road less travelled musically and we are into unusual progressions, odd timings and weird tunings. Different guitar tunings give our songs a unique feel. My favourite one is DADGAD.
