"Kurt seems like he could have existed 30 years ago, like he could have been on tour with Joe Walsh or Led Zeppelin in the early ’70s. And he writes songs that — even though they sound new — also sound like they could be from that time, too. He knows 40 years of rock’n’roll, but he’s trying to do something new with it. He has this really sad voice, but in a good way, like he’s a much older person than he is, like he’s been through a lot of shit. He’s an old soul."
