Francis: "We met on Myspace. George actually did a remix for my old band. We hit it off on the first day that we were in the studio together."
Reid: "It was very easy — so much fun. We just kept on writing. There was no real premise behind it. It was just music for the sake of music."
Reid: "It's been so nice to see the reaction. It's amazing to go into a festival and see people sing the words back."
Francis: "The set-up rule we live by [for stage shows and videos] is to keep it simple, so that the music can shine through with whatever we do."
Francis: "George's style may come from his skater days — jeans that don't flap about all over the place and a good looking T-shirt.
Reid: "As for Aluna, I truly don't know what to say. I'm worried that I could get into trouble."
Francis: "He's looking at me now suspiciously." [laughs]
Reid: "How about 'just really, really good.'"
