Excerpt from "InMusic" interview:

Q: How would you define your music?

A: The way that I'm coming to understand/think about my music is as a method for discovering better questions about myself and the world around me. In many ways that seems to be the way that art functions in my life--an exploration of things far beyond my conscious comprehension

Q: Can you tell me about your new single "Dancing With The Dogs"?"

A: Dancing With the Dogs" is an upbeat dance piece that houses darker, dystopian themes beneath the surface. It juxtaposes elements of funk music with the grittier sensibilities of punk/alt rock which I think gives it a compellingly layered texture. I wrote it over the course of about a week, starting with the harmonies, melodies, and basic arrangement, then finally the lyrics.

Can you tell me a bit about... "Strangers on a Train"?

"Strangers on a Train" is a surrealist, dream-sequence kind of song. It also takes place in the same world as "Hunger City" and "Dancing With The Dogs," though at a moment of lessened tension. It's about sex, dissatisfaction, and longing from the skewed perspective of a Kubrick-like non-human. The title comes from Alfred Hitchcock's noir film of the same name.
