His sophomore studio album Afterglow was released on May 5 via One Little Indian/Columbia Records. It was made in Iceland over a one year period. “I approached the song selection very similar to how I always do it. The main difference with this album was that I was writing, recording and producing at the same time,” he said.
On his music video for “Unbound,” he said, “Usually for our music videos, we get a few ideas in, and feel them out. This one seemed to be a good fit. I wasn’t actually at the scene when it was made, but I had Skype meetings with them.”
Regarding his future plans, he said, “Hopefully, being able to be a musician still. To continue enjoying making music. I never really had any big plans of success or anything like that, just to be able to stay inspired to make music.”
His music is inspired by a “variety of things.” “It usually happens in waves of things, and you feel a door opens, and when you feel that, you try to write, and when it the door is closed, you don’t do it,” he said.
