You’ve just been to Mexico. How was your trip?
I got back yesterday, but it was a fantastic trip. I’ve had so many good receptions from all the gigs and there’s a fanbase there, so I’ll be back there soon!
You’re busy touring, because your second album Seeking Thrills is coming out. What’s the main concept of the album?
I don’t think there’s a main concept, because it isn’t a conceptual record. It’s a collection of songs that are there to empower the listener to go out and kind of seek something that’s different and they feel inspired by to go out and seek a thrill they wouldn’t have perhaps done in their normal life. It’s there purely as a sort of inspiring handbook to going out and do something. I wrote it when I was quite seriously changing my life. I stopped drinking and wanted to get healthier, so some songs reflect that personal state I was going through.
I look back at this album and think that it is an important life changing record, so if people get a little sense of that too, then that’s great. It’s also inspired by dance floor culture and is ambiguous as well. It’s totally up to you to decide what Seeking Thrills means to you.
