That's odd, I found another interview from good news era where he mentions his brother dying but doesn't say how. I always just thought it was he and his sister. Lyrically reminds me of Wild Pack of Family Dogs with an exaggerated narration style.

Thanks for sharing this. I also checked out the link to the interview where Isaac talks about death of loved ones a bit that in the description on the side (http://drownedinsound.com/in_depth/9933), which was also very interesting.
I would imagine this is also a major influence behind the song Ocean Breathes Salty, which has always been my favorite songs of all time song, which I've always had a strong emotional connection with, so this is cool to read.
