“It’s one of the most vital parts of our being a human being, it is the reason we exist if you look at it from a kind of mechanical, biological point of view,” he laughed.
“And I suppose a lot of it is symptomatic of being a young man. I don’t know, it’s just reflecting on love and sexuality and sometimes the embattled nature of it when it’s faced with traditional values and stuff.”
“You really get a re-charge when you play a show and you feed off that energy, and you kind of remember, when you see somebody else enjoying your work too, it reminds you of what you might have enjoyed once (laughs),” said the young artist.
Hozier, whose full name is Andrew Hozier-Byrne, is also up for International Male Solo Artist at this year’s BRIT Awards.
Despite living out of a suitcase, he says he still can’t believe his luck: “It’s a hectic schedule and it’ll be a busy year ahead but I am still kind of in awe of what’s been going on this last year and the opportunities that I have been lucky enough to have.”
Hozier is currently touring North-America and will return to Europe in June.
