What made you decide that music is the thing for you?

Going to live shows mainly. I remember going to the first Longitude festival in Dublin and thinking how amazing it would be to be able to create music and play it live. There’s something about the feeling you get at your first gig that can’t be replicated, but I remember it was special. 

Introduce us to you and your musical history?

I don’t really have a musical background. None of my family played any instruments, but I was brought up on Johnny Cash, Elvis and The Dubliners. As a kid I loved to create things from nothing, but I was never very talented at art until I discovered my love of music. 

I ended up studying music production in Dublin which helped me develop an interest in electronic music. As much as I learned in college, I think I learned most of what I know to this point by watching tutorials and reading music production blogs. 

What’s one question you’re sick of being asked when interviewed?

I don’t do interviews. 

We set up RGM USA and many other countries in the world to share music with America and the UK, good idea?

Yes absolutely. I think its great that you give new artists a platform to showcase their music and personalities. 

Do you sign up to any conspiracy theories? 

That King Charles is a vampire. Prove me wrong. 

Did you buy anything you don’t need in the pandemic?

I bought a race car bed just like Kirk Van Houten from The Simpsons. I thought it was appropriate at the time. 

What useless party trick do you have? 

I have an encyclopaedic knowledge of Harry Potter quotes.  

Tell us something about you that people would be surprised about? 

My bed is technically road legal. 

If you had to describe your band/music to an alien how would you describe it? 

The sound a Tuscan Sand Raider makes when he’s being butchered by a Jedi. 

What makes you stand out as a band/artist?

As I am the sole writer, performer and producer of my music, every aspect of it comes from within me and my own experiences. Just like a plant’s flowers will change their colour when dye is introduced to it’s water source, everything I produce is a reflection of what has helped me to become who I am. 

Right now, what’s pissing you off the most?

The housing crisis in Ireland, but that’s a serious issue so I’ll just say people who don’t own a race car bed. 

I hear you have new music, what can you tell us about it?

I’d describe it as Under the Sea from the Little Mermaid if Four Tet was the producer. So, if you’re into that then I guess you’ll love it. 

Talk me through the thought process of the single?

I don’t really remember much of the process. I find that experimenting with different sounds and textures is what works for me, so its hard to keep track of the actual process. The track is very different to what I had envisioned at the beginning, but I guess that’s the beauty of creating.

What was the recording process like?

Relatively straightforward. I write and record everything myself, I guess that has its positives and negatives. I do like the peace and quiet of working in my own space, which gives me room to be freer with my ideas. 

What was the biggest learning curve in writing the single?

The mixing was definitely a struggle. I find it quite tedious after spending days creating the music only to listen back to the track a billion times afterwards. I think its hard then to gauge the quality of the music overall, when you have to inspect it in such detail prior to writing it. 

Would you change anything now it’s finished?

There are a few things I would change, but I’m happy with the track as a whole. I don’t think any artist is truly 100% happy with the finished product, and there are always things that could be tweaked and changed. In the end I think you just have to settle for about 80 or 90% in order to actually finish tracks and move on to the next one. 

What are your plans for the year ahead?

I plan on making more music. Hopefully release an EP before the year is out, and perform it live in the new year. I have never performed live so it is something I definitely would love to do in the near future.

Is there anything else you would like to share with the world?

People, look after yourselves and each other, cauliflower is not traditional.
