Is indie-pop a dinosaur in terms of relevancy? Are you guys a throwback act?
Everyone is jumping on the indie wagon nowadays, for better or worse. As for relevance, it's just as relevant as everything else and every band is a throwback in a sense. We have yet to see a band creating music without any previous knowledge of what music is.

Describe your fantasy live music experience as an audience member.
Our individual taste is extremely varied, but collectively we would all be pretty stoked to go back in time and watch Joy Division in concert.

Describe your fantasy live music experience as a band on stage.
There is something about John Lennon and Yoko Ono's album Double Fantasy that is just completely magical. Getting on stage with John and Yoko to jam out a song like "Every Man Has a Woman Who Loves Him" would have definitely been an incredible (double) fantasy live music experience.

Do you willingly embrace the tag dance-rock? Or do you wish rock came first? Or do you essentially consider what you do live electro?
I think all those terms apply. There is definitely dance, rock, disco, and electro elements in our approach. The order is just a matter of perspective.

-- Matt Preira and Sean Pajot
