Do you love Stevie Nicks? We love you.

How do you describe your music to people?


Rich with harmonies, haunting guitar, danceable yet depressing.

Tell us about how the band formed.


We met on Craigslist, and instead of murdering each other, we started the band and discovered how much we all like food and dogs and playing music together.

Tell us about your best gig in Sac.


We had a radical time playing First Festival in 2017!

Tell us about your worst gig.


We played a gig in San Jose, and on the way there, our van was broken into and our gear got stolen. Then we only got to play a 20-minute set, and on the way home, we ran out of gas in the pouring rain. A really cool tweaker appeared out of nowhere and helped us push the van off the freeway, and we all became temporary friends.

What's next for you?


Record our second album and make a video.

What's the story behind the band name?
