By: Remington Fioraso

Who are your influences?

CPB: Weezer, Misfits and Bobby Vinton

How did you meet?

CPB: Christian and Jeff probably met at school. Years later, they thought Jon was good at drums so they started jamming with him.

For those who have yet to hear your music, how would you describe your sound?

CPB: All the elements of pop that you like played with the sincerity of a good rock n roll song

Why did you choose “Superdown” as your first single from your upcoming release?

CPB: It’s heavy but also soft, I think it demonstrates the versatility of the band.

How was the recording experience for your EP?

CPB: Sort of like the movie Speed, we got there in a car that seemed like it was going to explode if we went below 70 or something. Once we arrived at the studio we channelled all the nervous energy into 4 songs which I think explains why they’re all so short in length.

What were the inspirations for the tracks featured?

CPB: The simpsons, coffee and sriracha
