really cool to meet and play with different bands from Long Island.

WHERE DO YOU SEE YOUR BAND SOUND IN THE FUTURE, ARE YOU LOOKING FOR A SIMILAR SOUND OR ARE YOU GOING TO GO IN A DIFFERENT DIRECTION?

While we consider our sound to be influenced by punk, we like to experiment with new ideas and

sound styles. We're also trying to find a way to incorporate a new found appreciation for Cher’s

music into our sound haha.

 

 IF YOU COULD HAVE ANY BAND/PERFORMER SING OF YOUR SONGS, WHICH WOULD IT BE AND WOULD IT BE IN YOUR STYLE OR THEIRS?

Liz- Carrie Brownstein from Sleater Kinney

Jessica- Pat Benetar

Jasmine- Gwen Stefani with or without No Doubt

Tala- Be Your Own Pet, I think it would sound rad, their singer has a higher pitched voice.
