“I’m desperately trying to write songs that are fantastic and make life affirming in the sort of all the right ways, but I personally think that that’s what the music’s supposed to do… and umm, if you write the words correctly, you can be absorbing all this stuff. But really, the whole point is the music flows over you. Music, basically, is like mathematics, you know, and you’re trying to form patterns, patterns that make you understand what is around you, and patterns that, umm, help you get through the next day. Like, when I listen to the radio and stuff, and I hear a new piece of music that I, you know, I’ve just got to get a hold of it, because it’s, it’s, I know it’s going to help me through a particular thing, until the next one… or its, its life affirming, the whole point of music is it’s life affirming.”
