Cassette-Rewind just published an interview with me. Straight-talk.
CR: If I can be completely real here, Afterthoughts is one of the most emotionally provoking releases that I’ve come across in awhile and it’s clear that you put your heart out on every track. Could you talk about themes surrounding the EP?
“A lot of the topics revolve around long-term depression, a deep sadness about having to die, a persistent fear of underachieving and the guilt that follows, sexual frustration, nostalgia for old lovers, a near death experience, and a resulting panic disorder I was trying to come to terms with.
Whether its singing about memories of teenage premature ejaculation or deliberately inflicting emotional pain on a partner to fuel a breakup… that’s the kind of stuff most people shy away from. I didn’t want to be scared of going there.”
