Over the last couple of months, I have documented my experiences, both in my visits back to San Diego and my life in Leeds, on a point and shoot 35mm film camera that I picked up in a thrift store (a highly recommended thing to do).

“What makes us different is that we always try to make each song we create different and original with lyrics and sound. We want our songs to have meaning and texture, we want to set ourselves apart by taking people on a trip with our youth.

Most have a revamped, more mature take on the typical tone.
