Coachella Q&A: Whethan
Real talk, Whethan rules. I imagine he's the kind of guy who would hide around a corner -- for minutes -- for the perfect opportunity to jump out and scare you, but also someone who'd reach his hand out to pick your ass up. His music does the same; it excites. For someone who goes through hundreds of submissions a day, Whethan is something special. So obviously we were excited to chat with him leading up to his Coachella performance that's just days away!

Do Lab last year, I forgot my USBs before my set and my tour manager had to run back to the house to grab them. Which he got right in time for my set. It was so crazy.
