The duo is made up of cousins Reese Donohue, who provides beats and music, and vocalist Christopher Prudhomme. The band started out with Donohue and Prudhomme sending each other music files online from two different states, but they are now both based in San Francisco.

Alisha spoke on the phone with Prudhomme about the process of writing and recording their summery full-length, keeping their music a family business, their classic rock influences, and their first-ever SXSW gigs.

Stream the interview above, along with standout tracks "Not Really There" and "Spinning Signs."
