The frontman discusses his penchant for short album titles, citing the likes of the first four Led Zeppelin albums, as well as how his lyrics tell a personal story of hope. He continues on to explain how he utilizes genre and melody to make a point; his love for Nick Cave, PJ Harvey, and Radiohead’s strong sense of self; and having Sonic Youth and Nirvana be his first live experiences.
“I really [thank] Nirvana and Sonic Youth for bringing those type of bills out on the road for 11- and 12-year-old kids like me,” he says. “Not only did I not know how insanely interesting what I was seeing was, but I didn’t know that there was something different. I didn’t know I was seeing something special.”
