How did the band meet?
Taylor: KT, Kate, and I all went to an after-school music lesson program where we met in early high school. After playing together in the program, we decided to form the band to play music and be goblins together, as well as fill a gap we felt was in the music scene as, in our experience, Minneapolis fostered a predominantly male-dominated space.
We really wanted a drummer that was the best fit for the band and decided to advertise on Tinder to find Katie! We just swiped “right” on every artsy nonman we came across until finally we swiped right on Katie and it was love at first sight. :)
What is the band's favorite song to play live?
Taylor: All of our songs to be honest, however, I have to give an honorable mention to our “Territorial Pissings” Nirvana cover we play at almost every show. KT’s voice is so good on the song and the crowds always go absolutely nuts. I like to put my keytar down sometimes and mosh with them, it gets super rowdy and I LOVE IT.
Kate: Sloshville is probably my favorite to play live! The breakdown is so fun to do on stage with KT and Taylor, except I always have too much fun dancing and forget what I'm supposed to play.
KT: My favorite song to play live would definitely have to be Rough. Being our most popular song, it really gets the crowd going and it makes me super happy hearing people sing the lyrics along with Taylor. Makes me do the Debby Ryan.
Katie: We have a newer (unreleased) song called 21 that is so upbeat and fun. We all just go nuts at the end.
We’re on track to release our second album at the end of this year! We’re super excited to show everyone what we’ve been working on and we feel we’re definitely settling into our “sound.”
The release date, album name, and singles are all TBA on our social media!
What is one cause that the band is passionate about?
Right now, our biggest focus and/or passion as a band is the uprisings across the country sparked by the murder of George Floyd, especially in our home city of Minneapolis. Although COVID-19 decimated our plans for 2020 (first tour, first festival, and recording LP2) the murder of George Floyd has pushed new music as a priority even farther back in our heads, and we continue to be out in the streets; protesting, running supplies and donating.
If readers would like to get involved we have a handy list of ways to support in Minneapolis (Or your city) below! As we find our way to a new "normal" in light of the massive changes taking place across the country, we've found a reignited passion in our music, our community, and the passion to push ourselves and everyone around us to consistently do better.
