Our song Ceto is intentionally ambiguous to let the listener make their own meaning, but to me it was about personifying the ocean so the relationship becomes more personal, shedding light on how we can mistreat it.

Where do you create your music?:
A lot of the time the song starts in my bedroom. I try to write organically so rather than having a designated time to write, I just write when there’s something to be said. Then it comes together in the rehearsal space as everyone adds their own flair. Finally in the studio is where we make quite a few adjustments (we are afflicted with perfectionism).
What piece of music advice forever changed your way of thinking?: ‘The person who enjoys their work never works a day in their life’. For me this was really a catalyst to pursue music and is now my goal, to be able to ‘work’ full-time eventually.
I live in Perth, Australia… The music scene here is a bit isolated. We are the most isolated city in the world so it’s not uncommon for acts on tour to just skip over us. But, the community that does exist is very tight-knit and supporting.
