What informs your music and songwriting?
My songwriting is mostly inspired by life and how I exist in it! I always access what exactly I want to say and go from there.

How have you evolved as an act over the years?

I’ve evolved because I’m constantly changing as a person and experiencing new things and feelings all the time. Music would be boring to make if I wasn’t.

What are you up to at the moment artistically?
I’m currently writing and working on a bunch of new songs. I’m a strong believer in letting songs happen when they do, I think the politics behind holding onto a record is strange.

What’s on your rider?
Hummus, hummus always. And grapes.

Tell us your most embarrassing or surreal experience.
A surreal experience was definitely performing on Jools Holland, I watched it religiously as a teenager. It was crazy being on the show.

What song do you wish you’d written?
There are so many, but the lyric I always think about lately is “Do you ever feel like a plastic bag, drifting through the wind wanting to start again?”

What’s your worst lyric?

The lyric I always think of being the worst I’ve heard is from the Backstreet Boys saying “Am I sexual?” Like how did they get away with that?
