Bio

I'm a big Charlie Kaufman fan, so I love the idea that someone can listen to a song (or watch a video) multiple times, and still find new sounds or meanings that they didn't notice before.

I find it really hard to assign a genre to my music without getting into dangerously pretentious territory so I guess it's just "weird pop" for now. I try to put as much of myself into each song as possible, whether that's lyrically, visually or literally collecting phone recordings and voicemail messages and hiding them in the beats. It's hard to find the right spot between vulnerability and oversharing but I think it's important. Making a song usually involves:

- Editing bird noises out of vocal takes
- Months of self-doubt
- Looking and feeling like a caveman
- Falling asleep watching YouTube mixing tutorials
- Subjecting myself to some sort of torture for the visuals
- Lots of tea

I'm eighteen years old from Sydney, Australia. Shy bean energy.

A true heart melter we all weren't ready for. You've destroyed us!!! (i say that with good intention and with lots of love). It's so sweet, gentle, beautiful. So pleasant and gorgeous to have on. Lovely!
