You recorded a solo album for Atlantic records that ended up not being released. What was the story with that?
"When I was nineteen I signed a record deal to Atlantic. It’s the age old story of: signed too young, didn’t necessarily have the right management influence, I didn’t have the right team around me. I got lost in the system and recorded a record that didn’t even sound like me. So by the time it was finished I was adamant about it not being released, and so we scrapped it. Then we recorded another one with Phil Ek up in Seattle, which was awesome, but it never got released because all the momentum was lost. There’s actually two full lengths I recorded from age nineteen to twenty-two on Atlantic records. Then I got off the label and released New Caves Ep- self released it, this is Deep Sea Diver. At the time at Atlantic I was just going under my name, then it became Deep Sea Diver. It’s funny because I’ve recorded two full lengths, but this [History Speaks] is the first Deep Sea Diver full length, which is really exciting." -Secretly Important.
