However, despite it being quite “different” according to Phillips, she claims it may be a “cool new thing to try out” and that the band might bring a little “punk rock,” to the venue.
The band members say they consider themselves Indie Rock say they are also influenced by The White Stripes, The Strokes and Arctic Monkeys. “We’re a new sound,” said Phillips, “We just want people to enjoy us as much as possible.”
