I've given up trying to understand what people think about me. It seems like a lot of people don't like the music we make and don't know me, or something.
You can do a lot to shape the feeling of a song by the way you record it.
When I started writing songs, I was doing it for myself and a small circle of friends. And gradually, over the years, an audience became involved.
It's glorious to be able to go onto the Internet and hear any kind of music anywhere, from anywhere, and get it instantly. But there's also something glorious about having a record with a sleeve and looking at the artwork, putting it on the turntable and playing it, there's still something romantic to me about that.
