Lead singer Jake Johnson told Just Jared, “With a new batch of songs and a new lineup, we figured it was probably appropriate for us to operate under a new name, as well. We chose a name that was as eclectic as the process we went through to record all of the new songs.”
“The new stuff is a collection of sounds from our collective individual environments,” Jake explained. ”Throughout the course of making the demos for the new record, we discovered that we could use various objects from around the house to contribute to the rhythmic feel of what was going on. Whether it was spoons, stomping on wood floors, banging hub caps together, or a glass full of popcorn kernels, it all became part of the new sound of a new project.”
“It is, quite literally, a collection of sounds we gathered from an urban, or metropolitan environment.”
Sounds unique. Do you dig the name?
