Two and a Half Questions with Eluvium

I guess the first obvious question is, what prompted you to take this brave leap forward and put your own vocals on the record?
- it's really as simple as feeling a need to, or an interest - it can be quite easy to get caught up doing the same thing over and over again- but i still consider music, and "albums" to be about being artistic, and following your heart wherever it may lead you - sometimes this means making statements that other people may not like, or even be able to relate to, or want to relate to - but creating isn't always about that - it can also be about trying to better oneself or exorcising ghosts - some would consider the move brave - but i really just did what i felt like doing at the time - and it was a wonderful relief

Are you responsible for all the instrument playing, including the drums, on the album?
- yes -

What is the main theme behind Similies?
- sorry to firstly correct you - but the spelling is actually similes - i know it sounds like it should be the other way
-but to answer your question - it's sort of a lot to talk about - but a simplified way to explain it might be "emptiness" -
