“Nobody can put our sound in a box,” said Mark Sheehan, the band’s lead guitarist. “We often here that we are ‘the hip-hop version of U2,’ or, ‘Timbaland mixed with Coldplay.’ It’s just pop music, with a little less pop, I suppose.”
The unique sound, however, did not front them into fame overnight. For it was a long and painful road to stardom, littered with tons of snags, obstacles and traps along the way.
“My mother had been terminally ill for about 10 months, and in the middle of recording our first album, she passed away,” said Sheehan. “About four months after that, Danny’s father passed away.”
