Raised in California her father, the lead-singer of rock-band Unwritten Law, introduced young Cailin to rock at an early age. With influences ranging from everyone from The Smithsto Violet Femmes, Sublime to Bob Marley and the Gorillaz, Cailin elaborates on the bands influences and inspirations: “Our influences are massively eclectic. My dad introduced me to classics from every genre at a very young age. As a band, we are all hugely inspired by 90’s and 2000’s icons, such as Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Nirvana and No Doubt, who each strongly resonate with our own sound. We want to make as big an impact with our own music and style like these incredible bands did before us.” Other influences include The Strokes, Pink Floyd,David Byrne, Oasis and Led Zeppelin.
