"[The song] is about sponsorships in the indie music scene and how corporations want to dominate indie rock," he says. "Not many people talk about it and it's about my frustration, about how it's a load of shit." Then again, as is Payseur's m.o., he's self-aware, laughing about the whole thing, knowing that, ultimately, you have to keep the lights on. "At the same time, [licensing songs] is something I participate in because, well, it helps fund my lifestyle."

This worldview has worked so far. "Things are better at this moment than they've ever been in my entire life," he says, smiling. He looks beyond me, out the window at nothing in particular. "I just got engaged. I just finished this record. I'm about to go on tour. My family is supportive. There's nothing I can complain about."

Except, maybe, that band name.
