---------------- From the video ----------------
Nick Kivlen: I think immediately when we first started, we had been hanging out in Brooklyn for the past few years and had seen a lot of bands. We were very much a part of the scene, and we kind of intentionally did a lot of things that we felt were opposite to what everyone was doing in the beginning. We wanted to make something more classic.
Julia Cumming: I mean, I’d say when we started the band, I was still a senior in high school. As soon as we started jamming, we felt like we were on to something, and we wanted to keep exploring it. We are all in agreement that you don’t get that many chances in this world. If you feel like you’ve got something, you should just go for it, because what do you have to lose?
Julia: I think that vulnerability may have a lot to do with the art of music in general, but I think also a lot of it is, maybe, authenticity or, you know, doing something genuinely. And I think that's something people, you know, kind of are looking towards, and someone that they can believe and stand behind in what they're doing kind of has a resounding effect with them.
Julia: It's definitely about being real. It helps to have a certain kind of openness to show that, I think.
