Writing! Writing! Writing!
For the past 8 months we have been writing and recording our album. Lots of long hours, loud laughs and great music! I’m convinced we’ve recorded enough songs to satisfy an army of starving artists! Still, ten thousand recovered word documents later, we press on!! We are heading back to LA in a few days to do MORE WRITING!! Give it up for LA LA LAND!! Why is it called that again? Anyway, before we embark our AA airplane and sit in those wonderfully designed coach seats, we thought we’d acknowledge some of the writers we’ve had the privilege of working with, PARTICULARLY the women! There are so many women writers! In a band of three boys and a girl there are serious perks when writing with women. For the boys it’s, “Thank God it’s a woman ;)” and for the girl who is only ever around boys it’s “THANK GOD it’s a WOMAN!”
So here is a list of all the female writers we love and you should get to know!!

The president of our label is leaving. Yes, Colin Barlow is leaving Geffen Records UK. Is it weird that we feel sad about this news ?? I mean he’s a suit - We’re creative. Let me say that again. He’s a suit - We’re creative - BUT, as it turns out, Colin is a creative suit and someone who was involved and excited about our project from the day we signed our deal. This is definitely bittersweet for us. Bitter- He won’t be a part of our team anymore. Sweet - He’s getting a cool new job.
Buh-Bye Boss Man. Gonna miss ya!
