WILL GOULD

WHICH SONG ARE YOU PAR­TIC­U­LARLY EX­CITED FOR PEO­PLE TO HEAR?

“Han­nah’s song, Crick­ets, is un­like any­thing we’ve tried be­fore, and it’s pos­si­bly my favourite song. It’s put in a place on the record, in terms of its struc­ture, where it would con­di­tion the lis­tener to know some­thing dif­fer­ent was go­ing to hap­pen. I still think it will sur­prise peo­ple, though.”

HAN­NAH’S PRES­ENCE IS STRONGLY FELT ON THIS AL­BUM…

“What’s been re­ally cool is that me and Ian [Miles, guitarist] are big fans of a very flam­boy­ant style, and Han­nah is ab­so­lutely in­cred­i­ble at hit­ting those notes and mak­ing it sound more the­atri­cal. That gives us loads more to play with, mu­si­cally. I want Creeper to have as many dif­fer­ent colours to paint with as we pos­si­bly can.”

WHAT’S THE ONE THING YOU WANT LIS­TEN­ERS TO TAKE AWAY FROM THE AL­BUM?

“In terms of our au­di­ence, it would be the mes­sage of I Choose To Live, which is a di­rect re­sponse to the fan mail we were get­ting from peo­ple in bad places in their lives. We never re­ally knew how to ad­dress it, so we were work­ing out the best way to re­spond, be­cause most of the time we’re as fucked-up as the peo­ple who are speak­ing to us.”
