Self-confessed mudblood and avocado aficionado, Xavier Dunn, is sending his latest tune 'Isic Tutor' out into the ether this week & we at Twenty Something Humans were lucky enough to have a little preview of it. We were even luckier to have a quick chat with the mudlbood himself.
Xavier tells us about the inspo behind his new tune, shares the last song that "did things to his soul" and tells us why Woolworths has recently made it onto is bad list.
If you had to describe your ‘vibe’ in three words, what would they be?
Smavo, nonchalant, tenacious.
Can you tell us a little about the inspiration behind your new single, Isic Tutor?
Video games are art. I played one called ‘Battleborn’ with a character called Isic who was an AI-type figure-of-a-being, and he had some woke things to say. And it was my teacher. Some would say ‘Tutor’.
What’s the best piece of advice that you have ever received?
“Die on your own sword.”
If you could perform alongside any artist, living or dead, who would it be and why?
Bon Iver, cos he’s the G.O.A.T
Talk us through your morning routine.
Grind my beans, smash my smav, hit the gym. Spacebar.
Other than through your music, what do you do to keep your creative tank filled to the brim?
If I’m not working on my music, I’m writing and producing other peoples’ music! That keeps me busy. Plus sometimes hiking and water-skiing with my gf.
What’s your favourite thing about your hometown?
Well I was born in Sydney, then raised in Dubbo. I got the mudblood in me strong.
What’s the last song that made your heart thump?
James Blake’s ‘When the car beside you moves ahead’. It did things to my soul. Moved me to Jupiter. And there I stay.
What was the last book you read that inspired you?
My gf’s reading ‘The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck’ and her wiki notes on that bad boy do things to me.
What’s the last thing to have made you angry?
Woolies selling brown/hard/ gross/ too-squishy avocados.
Summer or Winter? WINTER
Early morning or late at night? EARLY MORNING
Couch and trackies or carving up the dance floor? COUCH AND TRACKIES
A shot of tequila or a shot of coffee? FILTER OVER SCUM COFFEE
Fold or scrunch? FOLD BUT IF IN A RUSH A HALF FOLD HALF SCRUNCH JOB. FUNCH.
