'May We Be Forgiven is really kind of dark, modern fiction – it's great'
I'm listening to the new Arctic Monkeys album, the new Chelsea Wolfe album and I'm going to get the Darkstar album. I've been listening to Foals. I'm really happy they're up for a Mercury. I'm listening to London Grammar a lot.
My Kindle is broken so I'm back to reading books. At the moment I'm reading a book by A.M. Homes called May We Be Forgiven, which is really kind of dark, modern fiction – it's great. I recently read Heft which was a really great book by Liz Moore.
I'm trying to catch up on Top Boy. I loved the first series - it's just brilliant, really gritty and I think Ashley Walters is amazing. I started watching Missing and thought it was great.
I went to Postmodernism: Style and Subversion at the V&A - that really inspired my first album. Even the double bun I had was definitely inspired by the music part of that exhibition. I love the V&A.
I recently went to see the new Punch Drunk performance The Drowned Man: A Hollywood Fable and that was epic. I remember watching one of their earlier productions when they did The Tempest and it changed my experience of theatre totally. My mum has bought me tickets for Chimerica, which she's had booked for ages.
