It all started in a church I grew up playing music in churches and stuff. That’s where I got my start, where I found equipment that was good enough to play on…I taught myself piano and guitar and then started writing songs at like 13. I met our drummer Hayden doing that stuff and then we met Jason because we were looking to be able to produce some songs. That quickly turned into us all writing music together once we were a little bit older. So Jason produces all of the stuff, he mixes all of it, and we work together on writing all the stuff together.

“Ghost” I think that was kinda the breakthrough for us of incorporating a lot of our other - a lot of the influences we had as far as electronic music goes. Some of the beats that you hear in there are from the hip-hop inspiration that I grew up with. So it was kind of a drawing of those influences. It was the first time that we felt free to explore all of the options we had in one kind of song.

Family Support My mom always wanted to be a writer though, so it was one of those, it was a classic case of she never totally got to do what she wanted to do professionally, I think. So she was also very supportive and I think the same thing happened with my dad. I grew up with him being an appliance repair man...all my family have always really liked music that I’ve made so I think it makes it a lot easier.

The Entity, Sir Sly 8:30 I wrote the name down on a piece of paper and it felt like - the way we talk about it now - is that it feels like this person that isn’t any of us but we’re kind of aspiring to be. Like you hear the name and it makes you think of the kind of music that we want to be playing, how hard we wanna be working to make the best music we can and do things that we’re proud of and I think that’s why the name stuck. It felt like something that wasn’t us but something that we wanted to become…It basically sounded like the name of a person, or the name of an entity, that we thought worked out. The word, “sly”, was a nickname but it’s also an adjective and it kind of describes a little bit of those darker sensibilities of the music.

All the bass sounds and stuff, the way we would listen to it and move to it in the studio, it always had a little bit of that slinky kind of vibe to it.

“Gold” I think I was driving from Starbucks, from my job at Starbucks to the studio that day. And I had that first line bouncing around in my head, that repetition line of, “my mouth is made of metal”. And that turned into kind of a play on that repetition. And then the lyrics are inspired by a lot of the stuff that you see around today, whether
