This isn’t just music you can drive to; this is music that drives you.

“We’ve always loved the way film and music come together to create rememberable moments. We wanted to make one of those over-the-top movie anthems that kick in when the credits roll. The song follows a trip to ‘Soho’ I went on during New York Fashion Week. It was so surreal and cinematic, it all felt like the plot to a film that was yearning for a soundtrack.” – Timmy Waldron (Lead singer, guitarist)
“We’ve been a band for about a year now. The first three songs we released were written during the very rudimentary, early stages when we were still figuring out what kind of band we wanted to be. While we were working on ‘Soho’, we reached a point where we decided it was time to stop worrying about what was cool and just make whatever kind of music we felt like making.” – Evan King (Bass)
“We teamed up on the production with our friends Sean Silverman (The Technicolors) and Alex Silverman (This Century) who did an amazing job helping us bring our ideas to life. i think we’ve found a sound that feels natural to us; something new but nostalgic. We also recorded a number of other songs that I’m beyond excited about which should be out by the end of the year.” – Sean McCall (Lead guitar, backing vocals)
