What was the inspiration behind your track?

Musically, people like Richard Ashcroft and The Last Shadow Puppets. As well as old film scores by people like John Barry and Elmer Bernstein.

What did your process involve?

The verses and choruses were written separately then and then put together later on, happy accident. The writing of the strings involved me sat on Sibelius trying to figure out how it worked.

Is there a specific line that stands out in the song, and why?

“Make your way down the estate, the salt of the earth on your plate” – It’s the most direct lyric in the song.

Can you describe your sound in three words?

Old fashioned Pop

What’s the best thing about studying at BIMM?

You make lots of contacts via the tutors. You meet lots of really good musicians that play like pros already. You’re getting a degree to do music.
