Do you still get anxious releasing and touring a new record?

I do, but it’s a positive anxiety – it’s not stage fright or throwing up in the bathroom, it’s I want to feel in control because it can be hard to keep yourself together when you’re about to walk out in front of 10,000 people!

 

What’s the secret to being a successful sibling duo for 13 years?

It’s being forgiving of the times when you are going through bad patches, that is a big part of it.

I hate to compare it to a marriage, but it is similar in terms of when people want to combine their resources and have a long-term future involving each other. 

 

Do you have differences of opinion?

There are times when we do go down different paths and we do have to figure out how to get back on the road we’ve said we’d go down.

Once in a while it is OK to go down a path of conflict if it gets you feeling good again, though. 
 

 

What’s life on the road like now?

It is different to how it was in my twenties.

When we were figuring out how to be adults, the road was an extension of home, but now it’s clearer how weird and dysfunctional it is to live in a travelling circus.

I try to make the road feel like home rather than when I was younger when I’d try to make home feel like the road.
