Bronson is the solo project of minimal croon expert Patrick Everman. He recently finished a new ‘mixtape’ called Moth. Turns out, he only calls it a ‘mixtape’ because he thinks less of these recordings than he does recordings he would put on an EP. As he puts it, “ its a mixtape, so its an excuse for sub par quality i guess.“ After exchanging a few emails, I thought I’d ask him a few questions. What I didn’t know was that he would totally ignore my questions and then write answers of his own, to questions I would write after the fact:
Where were you (physically/mentally) when you recorded MOTH, it seems like you were in a bit of a low place?
Yeah I mean, now that I think of it, it was probably one of the lowest valleys in my life. It was kind of nice to have it cataloged and embodied, however abstractly. I mean, we had seen each other before, but this time I wanted to give all of myself to someone, so badly.
is more- rebuked
(in that order)
Your music is raw and honest, is it hard putting yourself out there like that? Or is it necessary?
well ive always been sort of self concious about it, my heart is a precious thing.
What are some of the main themes evident in your music?
its more about attachment and vulnerability than sexuality
How old we’re you when you first started making music?
What are some of the feelings you experienced that were poured into Moth?
It probably comes out of fear and disattachment, the older parts no longer reflect the present, what better than to xxxxxxx and start anew? I always end up feeling unstable and all over the place. I don’t kiss and tell
Who do you love the most?
