"Musicians and music journalists, they’re both people who love music and have dedicated their lives to it. So in that way, we have a lot in common, right? But it’s like cousins. You share the same DNA, but you grew up in completely different places. I don’t know, I respect and I’m on the same team as anyone who has sacrificed and dedicated their lives to music. I don’t have a good answer. I think it’s just a weird, interesting relationship to me. They have a lot in common, but we’re very different people. I don’t know. I don’t have an outstanding beef, it’s just an interesting topic for me. Like, what is the difference between someone who loves music and wants to be a musician and the person who loves music and wants to write about music. Where does that split happen?"

If you’re reading this, you probably don’t need another person to tell you how great this Tanlines album is, but here’s the “All Of Me” video anyways.
