"But instead of soaking that in, Antonoff has doubled down on work by branching away from fun., dipping into folders of music on his laptop filled with ideas that never made sense for his other bands. 'I need a hobby, and I don’t want it to be basketball,' he says. 'I want it to be music. So to get away from music, I do other music. If I’m producing someone’s song or writing with someone else, then doing a Bleachers song or a fun. song is an escape and it keeps me creative and it keeps me locked into what I want to do. If something’s making me crazy, I need to go somewhere else and I don’t want that thing to be yoga.'"
