How did you pick the band name?
Band name was decided purely by coincidence while looking in an encyclopedia ... no real meaning.
How would your define your sound?
I would describe our sound as melodic and something easy to listen to. It is alt-pop-folk-rock all rolled into one. The songs are lyrically driven but also catchy.
Describe your creative process for writing and composing music?
We usually just start with my lyrics and melodies and go from there. Sometimes, I have the song mapped out in my mind. sometimes it works, sometimes it has to be reconfigured. The guys are really good at guiding my songwriting and helping fit in the missing pieces.
If you guys were to play with another band, which would it be?
We love the dalloways! we have played with them once but it is hard for us to fit in with other bands. We aren't a heavy band, and we don't quite fit in with the indies.
Where / how often / how do you guys practice?
We would like to practice once a week but until our (mine and brock's) house is finished, we have to throw practices together at the last minute. We live in an apartment and that ain't no good for practicing.
Finally, why do men have nipples?
Guys have nipples because God wanted to play a cruel joke on the male specimen....either that or men would look funny without them.
