When I write I usually let them float to me as I do day to day stuff like work and sitting about in coffee joints and archive them in a notebook, is there anything in particular that helps you find that "one great line" that hits home?


In the studio, I eat food and play on my phone until a song is recorded. Then I ask the engineer to play an unmixed version for an hour. During that hour I write whatever comes into my head.

For Drug Church, that typically starts with thoughts about a situation or place. For Self Defense, I write down the first phrase that comes to me, then figure out where it came from and write about that.

“It’s frustrating. You don’t know if you’re coming or going,” said Bass, who feels as though it’s a type of legal eviction. “That’s just giving us three weeks to increase our rent, make a decision, get out, stay. This is really horrible. And these are families trying to stay.”
