Your song “John Cusack” is a very eclectic track in which you even introduce drum and bass elements. We know this is a hard task, but how would you define your genre in one word or line?
indie r&b with a synthwave undertone. It’s Wave Pop babey!
How did “Fake Dad” come to life? What is the story behind it?
What are the topics that inspire you the most to create music?
Often other art mediums like tv shows, poems, films, novels, and short stories. Our biggest inspiration though usually just comes from living—every day interactions with friends or strangers in new and old places. We both can’t help but people watch and eavesdrop when we’re in public settings, like on the subway or on the streets of New York, so sometimes inspiration will just hit from something we overhear on the train, or a stranger who seems to have a really interesting story.
Your songs sound uplifting but you appear covered in blood in your photographs. What is the thinking behind the paradox between your brand image and your sound?
That’s that push and pull again! We love making happy-sounding songs about sad subjects. A lot of our music is about imposter syndrome, low self-esteem, self-doubt, and just generally having a complicated relationship with yourself (which we both do), and we want to reach people who that resonates with. But what we really want is for people to find solace in that moment of connection—a sad feeling can be happy when you realize you aren’t alone in it. That juxtaposition is what we try to present in our shoots. (Plus, we just really vibe with campy, off-putting imagery)
If you were a… type of breakfast?
a BEC (bacon, egg, and cheese breakfast sandwich—a New York staple) of course!
