THE DAILY TUNE: How long have you guys been a band?
Malia: It started out as my solo project in 2015 but about a year with this lineup.
Daily tune: Has the sound evolved from your solo project or have you tried to keep it similar?
Malia: There’s definitely a bit of everybody’s style in it now. I write the songs that I like and everybody brings in what they want.
Kyle: We all have our own style but it works together.
Malia: And we all have an idea of the general direction of what the band needs.
Tyler: I think our newest record we haven’t released yet is the most collaborative so far.
Daily tune: What’s the craziest thing you’ve experienced on tour?
Malia: This could have been like a horror movie but two nights ago we were driving from Seattle to Boise and one of my tires blew out in the middle of the mountains.
Kyle: Yeah, it was like 3 a.m. and it took us two tow trucks to get us to a hotel because we couldn’t fix our spare, we we’re missing parts.
Daily tune: If you can play with any band who would it be?
Tyler: Deftones for sure!
Kyle: It would be sick to play with Manchester Orchestra or circa!
Malia: I have to come back to that one it’s hard to choose (did not come back to that one
Daily Tune: What’s your favorite song you’ve written?
Kyle: For me, it’s our new record and we haven’t played it live yet so no one has heard it, but it’s called “Another Feeling.” For us it’s definitely a step forward as a band
Malia: And it’s one of the only songs we started from scratch as a band.
Jason: As far as live mine is “Everything Glows”. Another one we wrote together.
Tyler: That one is probably my favorite too.
Daily tune: So when is the “secret record” coming out?
Malia: We don’t know for sure but fall is our hopeful answer.
Daily tune: If you could be a member in any band who would it be?
Kyle: Dude, I would be the sax player in the tower of power that would be so sick to me!
Jason: I would be George Benson.
Tyler: I would have to play drums for Green day.
Malia: I would be Hilary Duff.
Kyle: Hell yeah!
Daily Tune: If you could learn any instrument with no trouble would it be?
*Stickup kids yells from the back* “hey we’re headed IHOP if you guys want to join!”
Malia: We could all just started jazz band if we played those!
Daily Tune: If you guys made a new band what sound would you go for?
Tyler: Heavy hardcore or punk.
Malia: I would do pop vocals over electronic Pop.
Kyle: I would like to venture into Neo Soul, Funk and Hip-Hop stuff.
Jason: I would do Surf Jazz.
Daily tune: Any words of wisdom to end the interview?
Kyle: Drink water!
Malia: Eat Zinc
Jason: A wet bird never flies at night.
