Feeling a bit camera shy


We have deep indie rock and emo influences but it's not limited to that. Our emotional intensity is reflected in bands of these genres, but we have also been influenced by heavy rock bands like The Deftones, and classic rock such as Queen and MC5. Having been musicians almost our entire lives, and most of us having been to music school, we like to write songs that are complex and intricately layered. Overall, our main influences have been the following bands:
Interpol, Sunny Day Real Estate, Sparta, Hum, Texas is the Reason, Broken Social Scene, The Flaming Lips, The Strokes, New Order, The Cure, The Dismemberment Plan, Jimmy Eat World, Elliott, Jets to Brazil, Modest Mouse, Radiohead, The Promise Ring, The Shins, The Pixies, Sonic Youth, The Postal Service, etc...
