How do you approach songwriting? Are there any themes that you are keen to
explore when you start off?
It’s a different approach every time, or at least a different angle towards the approach. Sometimes a melody hits me smack in the balls and I have to record it on the spot, to stop the ball ache. My phone is full of voice notes of me, humming shit and beat boxing.
Sometimes I’ll sit with my guitar or piano, and shit just happens.
If the lyrics come first, it’s usually because I’ve seen something that’s made me think and reflect. Sometimes I’ll even think of a name for a song, before the song exists, because I know I want to deal with a certain subject. Like dogging.
