[moody music begins]
The search and destroy type nature
of this mission
was kind of like
we wanted to do something out of our range.
We have work in progress
but nothing was really ready to,
to just fire off here.
So we wanted to do a cover
and we settled on Abra
with the track Pull Up. ♪ Told me you liked me ♪
♪ You was in trouble the moment you said it, ♪
♪ tell all your friends to pop out if they want it ♪
♪ that they could come get it ♪
♪ Aint nobody else, ♪
♪ I want you to myself. ♪
And so right now
I feel pretty good about it,
but I mean, time shall be the judge
♪ Yeah we gon' run it up, I said we gon' run it up ♪
♪ so yeah we gon' run it up, get into trouble ♪
Writing itself has just become something I'm wired to do.
I don't know how to make sense of the actual world
If, if, if I can't somehow distill it into to, to song
it it's become a necessary foundation of, of how
I kind of make sense of everything and keep shit together.
It's a lot of keeping notes, but also a lot of
of just making yourself available and putting in the hours
because I find that the lightning
from a cloudless sky will strike every so often
but you can't sit around and wait for that.
So you actually have to sit
even though it's not comfortable and, and, and put
in the work because I'm not blessed in the sense that
that it will square it out automatically.
♪ You don't wanna be in love, no, ♪
♪ You think it's that easy to walk out the fold ♪
I love those people, Yacob and Yohan and Dan and Casper
that I play with
a lot of it is just also just, you know, hanging around
and having some sort of like vessel with each other to
to do something that feels purposeful.
I, I try not to, to allow myself to write
lyrics into final form until a week before
or two weeks before.
I know we have a, a set date in the studio and get fueled
by a pressing need of, of, of getting in there and, and
and putting it all from one mindset, overworking things
and overthinking things can be a real damage.
And, and I, I'm afraid of that.
I'm afraid of the halt that you can put yourself in
if, if, if you actually give yourself opportunity to
to sit with things too long
♪ I pull up with your bitch, now it's a party ♪
♪ Strawberita wavy baby feelin hazy ♪
Advice for other people, if there's some sort
of fire in there, I mean, try and get led by that rather
than the idea of where, where it can take you.
So I try and create these parameters and getting things
out in short lived sort of bursts to make things feel alive.
♪ You aint seen shit yet, you aint seen shit yet ♪
