Pretty much my whole life, I’ve been a performer and have loved singing and writing songs in my room for my own ears.
Bellyache’ is totally fictional. I like writing about things that aren’t real. The song is about not trusting anyone and then putting trust in yourself and realizing that you don’t know what you are doing, either. Or realizing that things you do with a group of people that you think are cool in the moment […]
Writing music is just like writing a book.
If you write in the same way over and over again, like, in the same place with the same techniques and with the same people, you’re sort of writing the same song over and over again.
Writing a song is so personal. You have to have trust in someone you’re working with; otherwise, you’re not gonna come out with something that’s really you.
When I do have free time, I spend it with friends, or I spend it at home writing or making something.
