“We wrote ‘California’ at a time of disenchantment,” the band shared. “None of us were impressed with the state of things and we needed to express that in song. It’s a break up song to the California Republic. Funny thing is, we’re still together.”
The visionary trio, comprised of American producer Johnny What and Australian vocalist brothers Jericho and Thorald, produce otherworldly avant-garde alt-pop while maintaining an air of mystery with their surreal visuals and enigmatic artist personas. They released their self-titled debut album via Rostrum Records this year, gaining critical praise and amassing millions of streams across digital streaming partners.
