— Dent May, while talking about his new album Do Things in July. The rest of the interview, audio and transcript, is coming this fall on In Afternoon Air.
"Living in Oxford, you see a lot of people who aren’t doing much. It’s a college town so there’s kids in school, but there’s so many people who get, “Oh, I’m going to work in a bar for the rest of my life,” which is totally cool, but it’s just like, stand up and chase your dreams. Don’t give up on your dreams that you had when you were younger because it feels like so many people in our parents’ generation kind of just took jobs because they wanted to make a living and they didn’t do what they really wanted to. I definitely think you only live once — YOLO — so I think it’s really important to just go hard for what you believe in."
