You recently released a new track titled Goodbye. What can you tell us about the song and where can it be purchased?

Goodbye is a very summery song where the chorus that it is admitting that its best to say goodbye to the one you love. The song has a Yellowcard kind of feel. It can be purchased on Apple Music and can be found on all streaming platforms.

Have you got any plans to release a full length album/EP anytime soon?

Goodbye was released as a single on our latest EP called Dreamstate. Dreamstate was released Late October.

What is the writing and recording process like for you?

The band worked on the song piece by piece in the studio. Moonroof recorded the song with the help of Tyler Ripley and Victor Sabatino.

Do you plan to release any singles at any point in the near future?

We just had our EP release show at Milkboy in Philly and honestly the energy was amazing. So many people listen to different things, so its all over the place.

You’re originally from Pennsylvania. What is the music scene like in your part of the world at the moment and are there any local band/artists you can recommend?

I recommend The Retinas as a great rock band and Saint Slumber as a great pop band.

What/who influences you most as an artist? What have you been listening to recently?

The bands that influence us the most is The 1975, Two Door Cinema Club, and The Band Camino.

Has the pandemic hindered your work much?

Honestly, during the pandemic all we did was record the newest EP , and when things were getting better we did shows.

Do you have any tour dates lined up?

We don’t have a tour, but we do have a lot of exciting shows coming up for us in 2022. You can catch us at The Kelly Center in Havertown on Jan 15, and The Bryce Jordan Center at PSU for Thon on Feb 18, and The Bloomsburg Spring Fair on April 30th.
