I have been writing songs. DIDN'T SEE THAT ONE COMING DID YOU?????
 
What’s your favourite thing about being a musician?
I get to say things in songs that would be weird af to say in conversation.

I was buying loads of gifts for someone who doesn't like me.

Zayn. 
 
What was the first record you bought?
It was a bunch of five. Vampire Weekend's debut, MGMT's 'Oracular Spectacular' and Calvin Harris' 'I Created Disco', Florence and The Machine's 'Lungs' and the Darwin Deez debut. 
 
Who’s your favourite pop star?
I have a lot of time for Bruno Mars, liked the second album a lot. I think he's a great writer. 
 
What’s your favourite smell?
Rain on really dry, hot ground.
 
Which of your songs does your family like most?

Being in a pram while it rained.
 
How punk are you out of ten?
If 0 is Theresa may running through fields of wheat, and ten is Mark E Smith punching through his parents' drywall... I'd say I was about a 6.4.
 
What’s the scariest thing you’ve ever done?
Acid.
 
Do you believe in aliens?
Yes, of course. 
 
Have you got any secret tattoos?
Nope, I’m a clean sheet.

I'd buy an obscene amount of fields all over the country and plant loads of mad forests.
