Sometimes people talk about music, whether blogs or magazines, in a strange way where it doesn’t seem like they’re actually listening to it. They’re just like, ‘Oh, it sounds like the second album.’ It’s not the best way to listen to music. You can’t direct people, but you can just go, “Hey, I don’t quite know what that means.” In our music, there’s a lot of stuff going on, but the most important thing for us is that we hope it resonates with people. If someone talks about that, we’re going to understand. Whereas if they say, “It really sounds like this,” we’re gonna say, “Uh huh, ok.” You can make a reference to Cocteau Twins, you can make as many references as you want, but I do think the most meaningful thing about our music is the feeling.
