The Skinny: is not shy about speaking up about what they do, for what they do is what they are passionate about. Thankfully, they aren’t going to put you to sleep with what the french call a ‘metro-boulot-dodo’ story.

For the past several years, has constructed their lives around music. Everything else has just been white noise. It’s why they work pointless, unfulfilled jobs, and smile and nod when people think it’s “cute” that they make music. “But how do you make money?” friends ask. Thankfully, Matt Sullivan, (drums/percussion) Dante Berardi, Jr., (guitars/backing vocals) Caitlin Grieve, (violins/backing vocals) and Wooyoung Kim, (bass) are well aware of the fact that true pleasure, meaning, and success is derived from creative endeavors even with no million dollar contract in sight.

Good thing, or they would have ran for the hills when Nate Daniels (lead vocals, acoustic guitar) approached them with the prospect of pursuing a career that may never amount to the fame and fortune so many reality television shows make look so easy!

As a band, has distanced themselves from expectation and have flirted with the fantasies of unbridled success, but above all have created solid music that doesn’t conform to a certain genre, standard, or ideal. They stand ready, at the forefront of a movement fueled by a 21st century anti-manufactured organic sound. is ready to share their journey and sound with the release of their debut record, The Young Love EP.

The six-track project is an amalgamation of years of humming and hawing, trail blazing and bridge burning, contemplation and reclusiveness, all penned into rich and sardonically optimistic song. The Young Love EP is a cinematic soundscape that reaches into the emotional ups and downs of not only romantic love, but love in general. To listen is to love! So check this out and enjoy!
