Basically, Sarah’s dick has a lot of room for sucking.
This EP was writing while I was in a place of anger. So lyrically it tells the story of my rage mixed with the love of embracing it.
The idea was to not to try to, you know, glorify violence or anything, we just thought it was a fun idea
Another ancient interview with Yeah Yeah Yeahs. This one was their first ever cover story. Thought you might enjoy reading this as well.

My whole school years were fucking saved by the fact that I learned to play guitar and sing
We’re all secretly struggling.
“I’d much rather have a minute of awkward silence than me asking people how their night went. Awkward silence has way more to do with the music we’re playing than casual banter”
