Hozier Interview with German site Bedroom Disco. It’s in English!

Great conversation about songwriting (excerpt):

Bad lyrics can ruin a song for me. You seem really perfectionist about yours, is that right?
I spend most time on lyrics more than anything else. You can feel your way through music, if it feels right you know it. Sometimes the flow in the lyrics feels right but the repetition to that word does not feel right. The edges are too sharp, its got too many consonants… Lyrics are the first thing I hear when I listen to music, I often judge a song by it because that is what a song is. A song is really different from music I think. There is something that the song has that music alone doesn’t. 

That is interesting! Can you explain that further?
Yeah. What’s in a song is often what the human is it could be the story, it’s the feeling, it’s the emotion behind it, it’s the motive behind the person, the person is in the song whether it’s a story, whether it’s a sea-shanty a work song or a shout song. The song contains the person, the music is just more like the medium that get’s it there. Music is absolutely incredibly important but you can feel your way more naturally through the music. Sometimes you hear a song and the lyrics are a bit by the numbers, it feels like you’re listening to something that was penned to sound pretty. The song is where the weight is- the chore of it. 

A little like: the song is the picture but the music is the frame?
Kind of! Yeah! Not in every case but I think that is a good way to put it! “
