As we released THE HUNTING PARTY, I spoke on various occasions about the inspiration of the album. Part of the answer is that the album is a response to a surplus of danceable, safe, indie-pop music that’s taken over “rock”. A year ago, we knew the indie-pop thing was a style that our band is capable of making. But we were not interested in pursuing it. Why? Because there is a LOT of it out there. It seemed far more exciting for us to go against the grain.
In interviews like this one and this one I plainly explained that, although I enjoy listening to bands like Haim, CHVRCHES, Vampire Weekend, Arcade Fire, M83, and Phoenix, I felt like the genre as a whole was suffering from a surplus of bands in that vein–bands that, in many cases, came after the ones I mentioned.

Anna grew up in a mountain town so small it only had one stop sign. He parents grew up during the Great Depression, and they lived in a modest home packed tight with her large family. As a kid, she used to climb up into trees with books to escape the chaos of being the youngest person in the busy house.
Reading led to writing, and she eventually immersed herself in classes and conferences. She worked with as many other published and non-published authors as she could. In particular, she devoted herself to a manuscript that was clearly special.
I met Anna in the late 90’s. Like most people close to her, I admire her honesty, integrity, generosity, and fierce independence. A few years ago, after her manuscript got nominated for the…

Stupid People Say The Dumbest Fucking Things:
Winston: “Ma’am, please calm down.”
Customer: “Don’t fucking tell me to calm down!”
Customer: “The installer told me he would solve this, and now just look at my bill!”
Winston: “Again, I can’t see those charges on your account; they don’t show up on our end.”

Winston: “You mean, the main line here?”
