Describe your sound in five words:
What has been your most memorable show so far?
Oh man, there are so many! If we had to pick, playing with our friends Beneath the Bell at Standard Collective in Melbourne. It was a benefit show for a friend who passed, and was such a great line-up with great people in an awesome little space.
Which local band is your favorite one to play a show with?
Beneath the Bell (formerly “Fighting the Silence”). They always give 110% and have such a big operatic sound that's more of an experience than a local band show.
What description gets used for your band that you would most like to correct people on? Why?
We actually like when people make up their own description, It’s up for interpretation and it's fun for us to see the words people use. We forget who, but someone called us “cosmic alt-rock.” We got a kick out of that.
What’s your favorite thing about being an Orlando band? What's your least favorite? Why?
Like most of us, we genuinely love living here, the awesome venues and for the most part the Orlando music scene is a pretty tight-knit community. We look out for each other and help one another grow. Least favorite is parking downtown.
Any big news to share?
We have a lot of big shows coming up and we are getting ready to record our full length album in 2019!
