«To grow up with something that makes you feel a little bit different than everybody else, can be challenging. When we were planning the video for «Fallen Angel», this was the story I wanted to present, based on experiences from my own childhood, to inspire kids and youths that relates to that situation and those feelings.
I grew up with Tourettes Syndrom and was named “Tics” due to my involuntarily sounds and twitches in my face. I decided to embrace the name, and the character TIX was born. In Norway, a big part of the population knows me as the one I’ve grown to be, and I believe it is important to tell my background story, and show them that there is always light in the end of the tunnel. Even an ugly duckling can become a swan.”
