Discovered this band because of VERIDIA| Posted December 18, 2016
After I became obsessed with VERIDIA, I found out that Deena and Brandon had actually played together in this talented band. I love their music and still go on YouTube and listen to their EPs. They have a very different sound than VERIDIA and pull both sounds off magnificently!
