What is your biggest inspiration?
It’s really hard for us to say who our biggest inspiration is. We are really inspired by so many different artists over a range of genres. We kind of take those different inspirations and fuse them to help us write our music, but if we were to name a few… The Used, Mayday Parade, the Lumineers, the Who, the Killers and the Clash.
How long have you been performing, and what made you interested in performing in the first place?
We have been performing together for a year and a half now. We met freshman year in a software music production class.
What made you decide to participate in the UVL Prelims?
We competed last year but didn’t make it past the first round and decided to give it another shot.
What was the first thing that went through your mind when you found out you were advancing to the finals at Skirball?
We were really stoked and knew we needed to practice more.
What would winning UVL mean to you?
NYU is [overflowing] with so much talent so it would be such an honor. Honestly, we are just so happy to even be a part of the show and have an opportunity to perform for this great audience.
