NotableMost of the band has played together since they met in college a few years ago. They were a hip-hop group until refocusing on electronica and plan to finish a debut full-length album in the coming months, Singh said.

Quotable"Once we all left school, we became really, really interested in trying to get a lot of technology up on stage and trying to create something new," Singh said. "We figured that's where music is headed - fusing together with the electronic world."
