On our first album “You and I EP”, we wrote a song about a killer whale named Wilson who drinks Gatorade and eats ravioli. As you can imagine, it’s hard to put your heart into something like that. This is such a stark contrast to how we write now. We sing songs that we believe in with our whole hearts – and we feel like that’s what music should be. Ellis Island was a place of new beginnings. It was the start of an adventure into a whole new world. Ellis is a new beginning for us.
