Seasick Mama in FAME Magazine
How did you start writing it and when?
I started writing Tip Top Shape in the summer of 2012 mainly between Los Angeles and New York City. I worked in quite a few different studios including Dave Sitek’s private home in Glendale. He owns a few cute bangle cats and had a team of really cool musicians.
Like everyone else, I was going through a pretty rough time…the perfect opportunity to write. I was waking up everyday saying “I need to be better, I need to be better, I need to be better”…That is where “Tip Top Shape” was actually born from.
There is a song that Peter Wade and I wrote (still untitled) that never made it onto the EP…It included the lyrics “I wanna be, better. I wanna be in, tip top shape.”
