being a live singer

Because I’m a live singer, I’m very aware of the fact that a song is not going to sound the same twice and it shouldn’t. So you just take advantage of what you’re feeling at the moment. It’s even better if you sing a cliched, happy tune when you’re really upset. It brings a lot of edge to it. When I was in the punk band Kukl with Einar though, that was fucking therapy ; every gig was like cutting your chest open and tearing out your heart. It just became ridiculous after a while.
