“I can hear why it would be a dichotomy to other people’s ears, but these songs really are the most natural output of what we write together,” says Marc. “Really, all of those words and sounds go together and mesh well in our minds. The balance and tension of these songs just feel the most organic and natural. There’s always a bunch of things going on between all of us, so these songs really sum up and exemplify how we interact with each other too. It’s always a balance.”

Worthless Chorus is a great example of how we roll. It starts out like a face ripper and ends floating in space. Although, to be honest, that song might be a bit too much of a juxtaposed, bipolar song, so a solid runner-up would be $20, which is an all-around solid jam and also exemplifies all of our interests in what we like in songs -- super rad groove, assertiveness, and its playful.
