The guys – Kalin White and Myles Parrish – opened up to the glossy about their debut album and how they built up their fan base. Check it:
On starting out: “We would promote the shows on Facebook and push them out to everyone we know and it would take like three hours, thousands of clicks. When we would see certain girls that would keep coming back, and know the songs, and be into it, and some would make their own t-shirts. This was within the first five months of us dropping the song. People were coming from a couple hours away, that was pretty legit. I think that, too, inspired us to make it work.”
On their fans: “We were hungry for it, at first, we wanted to just try to play wherever we could, whoever would let us play. [Austin Mahone] pretty much had the place sold out, so that was our first time performing in front of a big crowd like that. We got to know these girls really well, and they helped us get a really good show back home.”
On their new album: “Just the way that people listen to music these days, I don’t feel anybody’s stuck in one genre. I feel like a lot of our inspirations are coming from a bunch of different genres, and I feel that it’s natural for it to translate that way when we’re making music.”
