Bipolar Sunshine interview for Love Music Your Way

Time Out has a Bipolar Sunshine interview for Love Music Your Way, the new music festival in Dubai taken place at Media City Amphitheatre on April 29

He has his own music genre, “grey”
“Grey isn’t just black and white so it enables me to find my own niche within that. So many people say, ‘oh your music sounds like this or that’. They have an opinion, so to avoid confusion, I said I’m gonna have my own style. It’s called grey and a few artists do that now, too. It’s something new and that’s a great feeling.”

He isn’t bothered about fame
“I’m just going to carry on being myself. I do get noticed a little bit now, but I just keep it calm. It’s cool when fans from all over the world listen to your music, and they care about what I’m doing. It’s a surreal feeling. But I still get the bus into town [Manchester] and I just do what I want to do.”

…But he enjoys the Vip perks
“I like travelling and I think I’ll be flying first-class to Dubai. The perks are nice, I can fly over, put my feet up, relax and hopefully watch the new season of Game of Thrones.”

He’s recently become a dad
“I’m happy. I just had a little boy, and he’s only a few weeks old. I’m feeling lucky because I’m now able to see the world through someone else’s eyes. My outlook has definitely changed, it’s just put a perfect weight on my shoulders that I enjoy, and it’s given me a focus and another energy to perform.”

His new album is a “feeling”
“I always think about things that happen in my life. I think about how I’m going to use those experiences and how I’m going to channel them to turn them into something that sums me up and makes me, and therefore others, feel powerful, strong and vibrant. I’m not going for a specific sound, I’m going for a feeling. I’m not trying to emulate anyone. I do what I want to do.”

This will be his first trip to Dubai
“I’ve never been and I’m really looking forward to seeing the architecture, being able to immerse myself in a new culture and seeing how people live, because that is always the best way to understand a new place. Hopefully I’ll shoot a video out there for a new song that I’m working on right now…”
