Alex: “It's great to be able to play solos and interact, but also have people mosh, dance, and freak out. We like being loud, going hard as fuck and kicking over our instruments. We’ve had mosh pits happen at many of our shows, which is kind of unusual for a “jazz” band.”
Chester: “[When we went to England to play a few shows with Gilles Peterson] it was our first time in the UK and we had a great time playing out there. Gilles Peterson is an amazing guy and being able to record at Maida Vale is an honor. It was just a really awesome time and we're so happy he reached out to us. Playing at the Worldwide Awards we got to meet so many awesome artists and then playing at Maida Vale and being in the same room as so many big artists was a great feeling.”
Alex: “I think we're going to be back in London in June or July playing some shows. At the awards show, we met the members of the xx and they went into the audience to watch our set and told us how much they loved it.”
