Tell us about your music - how did you develop your sound?
Our music blends the band dynamic with electronic sounds. Usually I (Tom) start writing songs on the guitar or keyboard, from there it's working on the computer with sounds, samples and MIDI. I like to work on my vocal melody and lyrics as the song grows and progresses. Working on the computer is great for us because we can really explore and form the song together.
