his talent, and Vincent brings out a side of me that I would love to explore more of. It was an extremely emotional experience, especially coming to the end of this album cycle, and that sense of achievement and loss, exhaustion and pride, all of these feelings, I didn’t have to act much those tears were defiantly real.Q2. Miranda Dawn Lorance – I had the pleasure of meeting you in Dallas in September. You drew lungs on my arm, which I had tattooed. Lungs themselves play a pivotal role in both self-expression and survival. As an artist, in what ways are self-expression essential to your emotional survival?
A lot of the factors of my creativity make my daily life pretty difficult, I don’t often have a handle on my emotions and things can get pretty confusing. But it seems as though those things come together and make sense in the studio. I tend to pull myself apart on a day-to-day basis and I think that’s my way of putting myself back together again.
Q3. Andrew John Knox – Every time I hear you, your voice leaves me mesmerized! You are one unique woman; I was completely lost in your music, when I saw you live. Is there anyone that you look up to, who you have heard, who leaves you feeling like this?
I saw PJ Harvey perform a solo set at bestival, it was just her and 3 instruments. She moved about the stage with such power and fragility it was awe-inspiring.
Q4.Irina Damian – Sylvia Plath used to say that ‘the worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt” – many artists have such moments and somehow manage to fight them and turn them into art. How do you do it?
I self doubt constantly, I feel like that’s why I make art. That self-loathing is what pushes you to create something beyond yourself.
Q5.Elaine Reilly – Does the fame sometimes get surreal for you? What’s the best part of being in a well-known band?
I think I’ve been on the move so much; I haven’t had the time to notice it. I don’t think you’re ever really aware of being famous. I guess the best part is getting to meet some of heroes, like Jack Nicholson and Ed Ruscha and to be recognised by your peers, like Mick Jagger.
Q6.Juuli Salo – are there any songs that you have written and liked them but still felt like they are too personal to release?
Most of the stuff I write about is very personal, I always try to hide behind metaphors and deny that the songs are about anything specific, but in reality most of them are. Except cialis online for kiss with a fist, that’s definitely a metaphor.
Q7.Miranda Dawn Lorance – Do you have any advice for an aspiring writer?
Keep your eyes open, read lots, inspiration comes from the strangest places, post-it notes, street signs, graffiti, save your text messages I reckon.
Q8.Alexandra Tavares – Before fame, did you have a bucket list of things you really wanted to do?
Play the pyramid stage – still haven’t done that one. Play brixton academy – did that. Make my own record. Move out of my mum’s house. That was a big one, still haven’t quite done that one either!!!
Q9.James Beardon – Would you write a song for another artist?
Yeah definitely, I’d love to write for someone like Rihanna or Beyonce, but not sure they’d need my help.
Q10.Paige M Lednar – You recently collaborated with David Lachapelle for the Spectrum music video, are there any other visual artists you would like to collaborate with?
I’d love to work with Michael Clark, he’s a choreographer and has done amazing things to Bowie and The Velvet Underground. I’m obsessed with Pina Bausch as well, I’d love to do something with her company one day.
