We usually start by piecing together riffs and sections from all over the place in one song session and when we have something that musically makes sense we hand it to Hugo (our singer) who puts some random words and melodies on it. Then we decide what to write the song about.
It is definitely a weird way of going about it and it may well change as I personally love songs where you can tell the words and the story was the most important thing first and foremost.
I think we have all been through our struggles in life (like everyone) and music is the thing that has helped us through in one way or another. There just isn’t anything else when you live and breathe it. You have to do it!
