Hozier on Man Buns og Performing med Annie Lennox på Grammys

Som en ung dreng, who grows up in eastern Ireland, Andrew Hozier-Byrne never expected that he one day would reign Billboard Top 100 and be nominated to a Grammy. “Last year has been a completely surreal experience for me,” he said Med stil. “I only understand now.” For den 24-årige sanger-låtforfatter var 2014 en rigtig frugtbar. Ikke alene lancerede han sit selvbetegnede debutalbum til kritisk og kommerciel anerkendelse, men han udførte sit smash hit “Take Me to Church” på Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, på Saturday Night Live, og senest ved de ovennævnte Grammy Awards sammen med Annie Lennox.

“Hun er en sand legende i min bog,” sagde han. “Det var fantastisk for mig selv at udføre på Grammys, men at gøre det sammen med Annie Lennox var en virkelig utrolig skære.” What is more amazing is the irlmer’s unlikely rise to fame (he wrote “Take me to church” in the loft of his family home, and in September of September became the song viral at Reddit) and the fact that he managed to secure a strong-sought after radiospots med en folkemæssig påvirket, bestemt ikke-mainstream lyd. Vi chattede med musikken om hans vej til succes og selvfølgelig hans elskede frisør. Læs videre for hele interviewet.

Din musik lyder meget bluesy, men du er selvfølgelig fra Irland. What have you listened to grow up??

Min far var bluesmusiker og spillede en masse blues, før jeg blev født, så min første introduktion til musik var Chicago bluesmusik. Also one of my favorite movies when I was younger, was Det Blues Brothers. It was from a very early age that I listened to that kind of music.

Who are some of the actions you need to listen to?

When I was older and more aware of my taste in music, it would have been John Lee Hooker, Howlin ‘Wolf and Muddy Waters. Nina Simone er også stor, hun blander jazz og blues rigtig godt.

What about some of your other influences? Du har nævnt, at du er fan af James Joyce i andre interviews. 

Sikkert. Der er meget sentiment i A portrait of the artist like a young man It has had a big influence on me. Andre forfattere, som Oscar Wildes eventyrhistorier og W.B. Yates poesi.

“Tag mig til kirke” er ikke dit typiske radio hit. Had you ever thought that would be so great success? 

I really did not. I thought it would be appreciated by a very small crowd. Jeg skrev det for en år siden, bare sat down on the piano and stumbled over a wire. I did not think it would be a radio hit or chart at home or abroad.

There are some heavy texts to throw out in the attic. Mange tror nok sangen handler om religion, men i mange måder handler om sex. 

Det handler om sex, mænds sprog er informeret af et sprog i kirken. Den følelse af embattlement er informeret af en doktrin fra den katolske kirke. It’s not a matter of faith, it’s an human-organized organization and doctrine, which in my book fundamentally undermines humanity by teaching people to love or who to love. Det handler om at elske nogen og fejre det som en vidunderlig, grundlæggende del af at være i live.

The video describes it. Er homoseksuelle rettigheder et problem, for which you are very passionate for?

We wanted to refer to what is happening in Russia. We have such a culture of discrimination and hatred, and one has a negative impact on humans. It is something that very easily crosses borders. We had the opportunity to spread awareness about something like that and if it comes to people’s awareness in one way or another, shape or shape, then it’s good. Men it also reflects the song appropriately as an organization which undermines the improvement of society undermines the natural and wonderful part of what is a human being and loves someone.

Du har lige udført sangen med Annie Lennox på Grammys. Who is somebody, you hope to cooperate with in the future? 

Der er belastninger. One of my greatest influences of all times would be someone like Tom Waits. David Bowie er en anden stor indflydelse. Jeg er også en stor fan af St. Vincent og Leslie Feist.

Vi er nødt til at spørge om din mand bun. What got you to decide to adopt the style? 

I want to be honest with you, maybe it was sometime last year that I discovered what a man bun was. Min hår vokser ind i en fuzz bold – I just wanted it to grow down rather than udad – but then I realized that I could not play the guitar with it that way. I could not do anything daily without my hair coming in my mouth or in my eyes or in my food, so I just started tying it back long before I knew what a man was. I have come to like the look!
