Whether it’s our fans or our label. “
However, they always wielded this level of magic …

After their first major tour was canceled midway through the peak of the global pandemic, the group found themselves at home in Los Angeles with plenty of time. Where they absorbed and transmitted a different palette of unexpected inspirations. Channeling what the leader sometimes describes as a “cursive sound,” they embraced newfound confidence and boundless creativity. It all happened in the studio and all the “rules” were broken. Noah and Jolly wrote, produced and designed the music themselves while GRAMMY® Award-nominated producer and songwriter Zakk Cervini (Halsey, Grimes, Poppy, blink-182) lent his talents with the mix and master .
