I couldn’t help but notice (like many others) all the Dune references embedded in the tracks on your debut record Geidi Primes. Do you feel a relationship between the ever-present dreams you assimilate on this record and the nightmarish future presented in Dune? Is there a moment or theme in the film that you particularly love?
Well, I’d have to say that when I referenced Dune it was moreso from the books than the film, but I really do love the film and probably my favourite moments are anything to do with the Baron or Feyd Rautha ‘cuz I love the bad guys. But yeah, I don’t know, I would say Geidi Primes is quite nightmarish to me… I think it’s quite a bit how Dune is… kind of scary and caustic but beautiful and sad at the same time… and like, super escapist, super otherworldly… I like to think of it as a sci-fi record a bit. It’s funny to answer questions like this because when I initially made the record I never thought anyone would hear it.  If I’d known that it would actually have an audience I might have been a bit more subtle with the references haha, although Dune is really one of the most aesthetically influential pieces of art I’ve ever experienced… It’s extremely close to my heart and soul, if I could enter into any alternate reality it would be that one for sure.
