“My Siamese Twin is inspired by the film “Split”. It’s about having an alter ego which you can’t disconnect from. Inside us all are multiple personalities, some more devilish than others and some that we wish occurred more often.”

“I am always looking for emotion in my music. I start out with something going from either a beat or an idea in my head but it is usually not an idea per se, it is more of a feeling I am looking for. “

“Because my relationship with singing is a long one, but also a very tumultuous one, it’s the step I dread most. At the same time, it’s also always the part that matters the most to me. It’s where I crystallise the song into something other people can understand. It’s something like: I wrote this about how I felt; and now I want to make sure it’s communicated to you exactly in the way I want you to feel when you hear it. Which is impossible, and very greedy. But I try to get as close as I can!”

Attack on Anxiety

“Music has always been especially important and still is. I consider music as my best friend. Been there for me all kind of emotions I’ve gone through over the years. I still keep updating my playlists for different situations of my life”

Underlined Passages

“The EP deals tangentially with losing relevance in middle age and learning how to accept the inevitability of slipping into a life of obscurity as we age.
The concepts of contemplating suicide while realizing the absurdity and selfishness of that act, accepting oneself as you are, and the surreal fragmentation of digital life that prevents genuine gratitude – are explored on this record.”

Breezy (the band)

“This song is like a tongue-in-cheek conversation between a Horseman of the Apocalypse with a modern-day Christain who’s so caught up in themselves they’ve become blind and apathetic towards the end of the world going on around them.”

“I love listening parties at the end of a session or project because it is really the first time you get to hear what your vision sounds like and you can finally switch off and take it at face value.

TOZ Antonio Piretti

“I feel that music has strong power. It touches your heart and soul and goes right inside. I believe songs should also help people to live a better life and send out positive examples for a better world. I try to write songs with meanings and I hope they can be of help to other people as many songs were helping me or are part of my life.”

“I want to write music that makes people think. I often get the feedback that my lyrics are too sad but honestly I don’t want to write something for people to listen to to pass the time, I think that music should make you stop and think and even sometimes make you uncomfortable.”

“The creative process for me is always anarchic – confused, messy and unpredictable. However, it’s that very chaos which is dear to me.”

“The whole message behind ‘May Have Strained’ is that although passion may have strained, don’t let it get in between the people that you truly care about.”

Matt Astles

“Pain, sorrow, heartache, depression, joy, happiness, hope, beauty, all these things are expressed through music, it touches us and reminds us that we are not alone. The music that I love is sacred to me in that sense.”

“The key idea behind my approach to making music is simple – I make music that I want to hear myself. Artists should be selfish, and please no one but themselves first.”

“There’s a maxim in jazz, more honoured in the breach than the observance, that you should never play a note until you know what you’re going to play. One of my key ideals is minimalism – every note…

Songs for June

“I’ve always been fond of songwriting when a song can be sung with just a voice and one instrument. These days I find less and less attractive songwriting, everything is drowned in a lot of studio production. That’s not what I really like.”
