Notable: The band's music combines complex instrumentation and dark lyrics, which make for a haunting, ambient sound. Next month, it will release its self-titled debut album, which it recorded with Margot and the Nuclear So and So's in Indiana.
Quotable : "We'd like to think we're really special," Levy said. "[But] we're kind of a similar vein with Margot and the Nuclear So and So's. So, I think it was fitting."
