Describe your sound:

Airy, synth based dreampop.

Five Questions:

1) What has been your most memorable show so far?

We haven’t had too many at this point but I’d say the last time we played Will’s for the Great Deceiver’s CD release show. Good vibes all around that night.

2) Which local band is your favorite one to play a show with?

Probably Maximino. He’s coming with us up to NYC this month. Really looking forward to seeing him every night. A close tie for second is Great Deceivers and Roadkill Ghost Choir. Tonight will be our first time playing with Roadkill but I already have a good feeling about it.

3) What description gets used for your band that you would most like to correct people on? Why?

We’re not Canadian.

4) What’s your favorite thing about being an Orlando band? What’s your least favorite?

Orlando has a growing music scene and has been very supportive of our efforts which we greatly appreciate. The only down side is that it’s so hot all the time.

5) Any big news to share?

We’re working on a full length that is set to be released next February. I think that’s all I can officially say about it.
