It was very lo-fi quasi indie rock at the beginning, but I think we've drawn from a huge array of tastes. It's funny because we listen to everything from current indie rock to hip-hop to classical to classic rock. The biggest thing we're fans of is a great song, which can come from all sort of styles. We'll look, for example, at a record from 20 years ago- say Steely Dan or Stevie Wonder- and go through the presentation to see how each song was constructed. That brings several dimensions to what we do, so hopefully people will listen to our music and say ëhey, how'd they do that?' just like we do with those classic albums. The groove is really important too. We half jokingly say Wheat's "sexy rock."
