"Ida came up with the idea to make the lyric video for Nancy Drew about all of the Tinder cliches you come across online" the band explain, -- "guys petting an exotic animal, guys mountain climbing, and illustrating them all in cool clever ways. We loved the idea and just let her run with it, and are super pleased with the final product."
The band’s debut album, Try Not To Freak Out is nothing short of a massive rock record - one that weds their behemoth pop exuberance with epic punk chops. Guitars gleam, choruses soar, and Halvard’s racing drums exude pure adrenaline. Haley’s forceful, firework-spitting punk slices through you with an immediacy and confidence of someone several records in. Her lyrics aren’t explicitly gendered, but she transcends indie rock bravado and self-pity, instead aiming to dismantle the patriarchal structures that hurt society and block progress. Whether it’s a love song from an unexpected perspective or a critique on power and ego, the foursome’s message and undeniably catchy riffs have inspired critics and fans across the globe.
