Regarding the project, front man Carmen Cirignano says, “For me, doing cover songs was a fun and welcomed challenge. It was a way to tap into artists and styles that really influence us, and learn about what made this music stand out. These songs were covered in particular because they are simply a few of my favorite songs. Also, we wanted to do try a few new things in the studio, which are the reasons behind the duet with Brianna and the synth heavy “Age of Consent”. We picked songs that we felt would be fun and challenging at the same time.”
