Winky faces, eggplants, and bananas have their uses, of course, but if you want to be a little sexier, you’re going to have to use your words.

You guys just released your debut, full-length album. We got into a small room in Bushwick in the dead of winter and just did three nights in a row. And when you first recorded your EP in Texas, it was just you, but now…Yeah, the members have changed.

There was one song we did in a stairway maybe five months later, but the bulk of it was done just in Bushwick in a little rehearsal space. It was actually Phillip [Tubbs, the keyboard and electric guitar player] and I on that first EP, and then I moved to New York.

But it's pretty similar, the LP, I think, to what the first EP was. Because it's different having a single song and releasing it as opposed to having it be —Part of the album? Yeah, I think it does do that, versus something like, we did "Affection" and a cover of "Keep On Lovin' You" and those songs feel different to me because they're kind of isolated in a little chunk versus the LP stuff.

It does feel like that, though, that these are part of a collection.

That's interesting you did one in a stairway, because I read that when you were first doing your EP you were also doing it in stairways in Texas? Phillip and I actually both moved, and we found Jake [Tomsky] on drums and Randy [Miller] on bass, and the band solidified.

How do you think the sound has changed for you and some of the songwriting has changed because now you have all of these people? I feel like I kind of found more of an identity on that first EP than I had before, and so I really kind of just wanted to follow that through and just refine that, so I think I got the general idea of what I was doing there, and now it's like going in slightly different directions with it. How did it feel putting them in this bigger body of work all together? That was what I was worried about because honestly, when I think of records, it's hard for me to think of records that are just flawless the whole way through, which is what we were aiming to get, that this would be like a perfect record. And also, we wanted the songs to be single-y, too, like bands where I love their singles, like The Smiths. But I think we got a cohesive thing and the songs do feel like singles at the same time. Do you think your feelings toward them, or the way you listen and view these songs, changes now, knowing that they're part of an album?

, Melissa Coghlan along with the writer, Stephanie Fabrizi give us fresh insight into the movie and what it took to make it.

My interview with the writer of the film, Stephanie, started off with her asking me point blank: This film is polarising right? It kind of threw me off at first, but I was completely honest and replied: "If I didn’t like it I would have said I was too busy to do this interview."And we went from there.

Dallas is a very unique character with a lot of characteristics that are as attractive as they are heartbreaking. Dallas is going to be that lesbian where the girls wanna be her and the boys wanna be her. Jasmine and Dallas indulge in a lot of PDA in the film, was that tricky to shoot?

Any time you are dealing with intimacy on set, there is a certain level of care that you adhere to.

I almost tried to privatise it but publicise it at the same time.
