Interviews

Art as a means of expression necessitates sharing part of yourself, but it's often that—a fraction. In my interviews I always aim to simultaneously engage the critical faculties of each artist, and to peel back any pretences to reveal more personable details. I have written interviews for Dork, Skiddle, Under the Radar and hyponik.

Interview: Crack Cloud

Crack Cloud are a far cry from your typical band. When the Canadian group first started gaining buzz in 2018 off the back of two supremely vital EPs there was a clear seven-person configuration at their core, but a lot's changed since then. Not only is their debut record, 'Pain Olympics' primed and ready, but they've cast an even wider net for collaborators, drawing in a wildly diverse array of artists with little concern for medium or geographical location. It's perhaps no surprise then that Crack Cloud have also been described as a cult.

Interview: LA Priest

Samuel Eastgate's best friend is a robot. In fact, for a period of time, it sounds as if his only friend was a robot, or rather a slightly cantankerous drum machine. With a creative process that sounds awfully similar to certain social isolation protocols, when Dork reaches him on the landline of his home in rural Wales, the current chaos all seems quite distant. "I live with my family in a really empty, isolated area. It's almost like I planned ahead... but I mean I haven't, I haven't."
