Seeing, hearing and experiencing the band is a far cry from anything they would have produced a few years ago. Beginning with, In Heaven, followed by, Molotov Girls, off of the latest release, Swooner, the drastic dynamic change was striking. The audience never misses a moment, as their eyes glisten somewhere beneath the fog and flashing lights, their lips are moving along to every word. The band seems to have found their niche sound somewhere between pop, indie rock and electro, that makes folks adore them. Melding the set together of songs old and new was the odd charm the band seems to posses. It encrypts itself into their music producing an addicting energy that translates into a party on stage.
