Following on from last weeks discussion on my approach to lyric writing and some of the methods I employ, I thought it might be interesting to talk through an example.

Gaza was a song that was somewhat unique in terms of the development of the lyrical content, and the sensitivity of the subject matter.

I was very conscious I didn't want to wade in and pass comment on the situation from a distance and so in this episode I explain to Ant how the lyric took shape through the people in Gaza, Israel, and the UN whose perspectives I learned from.

It also allows me to introduce you to my friend Oren Hertz.

Keep it purple,


P.S Listen through to the end of the CroonCast for some breaking news.
