What do like most about playing at SXSW?
What we most like about playing SXSW is the free love.

Are you out promoting anything?
We just released a 7" vinyl single called What a Drag. We made a video for it in the freezing rain which you can find on the internet. We're touring the US with We were Promised Jetpacks, and then again with Passion Pit starting after SXSW.

Are there any bands or musicians that you are looking forward to checking out?
Bands to see... Tony Castles

What are the challenges in playing at SXSW?
Staying sober, finding a place to sleep, finding a decent klezmer band.

Do you have any survival tips?
The buddy system

Are you more "stick around, check out music and enjoy the scene" or "play as many shows as possible then get out"?
We'll be sticking around, checking the scene for sure. It's cold in New York
