How do you describe your music to people?

02.22.19

We make music for dreamers, pickpockets, somnambulists, poets, ne'er-do-wells, second-story specialists, free-thinkers, bums and tightrope-walkers. Aaron Davis said this in the Bee: "It’s as if they refused to vacate a Chicago martini lounge when the wrecking ball tore through it, staying with the rubble all the way to the scrapyard and not skipping a beat under a desolate moonlit sky.”
