WHO AM I?

LOOK AT MY WEBSITE. I don't mean that in a too cool for school esoteric way, just literally just look at it, look at my portfolio. I'm a freelance multimedia artist, and I'm active online.

WHAT IS THE ALBUM?

God Burned Down My House used to be called I Miss My Wife. It's just the same idea as that but better. I think that title and that image speak for themselves and that's why I like it. The album is heavy and chaotic, but in the way i think about "heavy and chaotic." I intentionally wanted to avoid doing things the way anyone else does them because I always found I made the most boring shit otherwise. Part of the long recording process was learning how to do justice to my own ideas in a way that didn't come of as amateur. I grew up on sludge metal and stoner rock like Kyuss and Melvins, and got into listening to/making electronic music as a teenager, so hardcore techno is totally up my alley, I just don't want to do it that way. I guess my music is more like rock than electronic. Getting into Death Grips, Nah, and B L A C K I E at 14 was huge because it blurred the line between my two worlds. For whatever reason I negated those influences and made more happy chiptune-esque music for some time and rapped, but after I grew up I got pissed off again so here I am.

HOW DID I MAKE THE ALBUM?

The album has probably been 5 or 6 completely different albums at several different points in time. Moments from some previous versions have been preserved on certain tracks, but generally the past year has been spent developing my skills at finishing tracks and performing. I started demoing the album in like 2019 I think, and ended up working on multiple side projects and did a bunch of film and graphic design work on top school. I definitely needed that experience to be able to finish this album, so I'm glad I took my time and learned my shit because I was able to be confident in my skills.

WHATS NEXT?

My band Psychic Pain is releasing our first EP. It's nu-gaze zoomergaze whatever, but it has elements of hardcore (punk) and witchhouse. My next album is gonna be more spastic and faster, after that I want to pivot and make something really poppy and weird. In my 30s I want to be making music like Yellow Magic Orchestra and Oneohtrix Point Never.
