I generally never want to synch my music for products on ads.
If someone wants to use it commercially I look at what the budget is and the creativity of the project. When Radiohead go quiet for a few years nobody thinks they have disappeared. Walking into cafes or restaurants someone would say something really nice and want a chat. I feel a lot more anonymous here in New York which is nice.

He is a perfectionist, he is for all intents and purposes a genius, he wants it to be the best. There is a side of him, when you get him behind drums and a microphone, where that raw talent comes out. In he took a creative detour to North East Arnhem Land, where he met with Djalu Gurruwiwi, a Yolngu elder and didgeridoo player, custodian and craftsman.

In the past those field recordings have been fashioned into sounds that become parts of his songs. Dad was big on discipline when I was growing up, but I was raised with strong values and taught how to navigate problems in a very calm and balanced way. There is a nice sense of trust in our family and it stems from the way my parents raised me and my brother, Matt. I am grateful for that.

My brother played keyboards.
He is 14 months younger than me and lives in Melbourne now. As kids, Matt and I used to invent imaginary worlds. At the back of our house was a big forest and we would play there and dream up good and evil characters and invent these Narnia-esque worlds.
We were very playful as children and we kept that right through to our teenage years. We are still very close and share a deep love of music. I had really strong crushes when I was around I was far too shy to talk to the boys but I definitely liked a guy who was a bit older than me in high school.

He introduced me to a lot of music I hadn't heard before. I was enamoured that he knew music I never had access to, bands like Interpol, Incubus and Mars Volta. Nothing ever happened with him, though.
I was more of a dreamer. My first kiss was at a party when I was It was a non-event but I felt crushed when I saw him go off with another girl at the end of the night.
That was pretty tough as a teenager.
I am the sort of person who definitely likes being in relationships. I have had some significant long-term relationships and I have been in a relationship with someone for the past year. When I find someone I really like, I want to commit and give it a good go. But because I have been so career-driven and on tour a lot, I have also spent a lot of time single.
It's been good to get to know myself better and get to know what I am looking for next.
