We all have lips.” Perhaps that is what we all had in common: no one was allowed to be serious, except about the importance of music, the glory of faces seen in the crowd. We had our songs, we had our faces! We had our web belts and painter’s jeans, our dyed tank tops and...

I’d love to say that I could write political songs, but I don’t feel clued-up enough.

Melodic songs that people can relate to has always been our thing.

I try not to write songs in which men glamorize their own need for approval from women. That’s kinda a bogus way to go out. But I try to do this quietly. I’m not about to go around telling people how they should or shouldn’t think. My feminism is for me.
