"I think that comes from being better musicians, more comfortable with each other from two-plus years of touring on the road. We opened for all of these bands – like My Morning Jacket, Death Cab for Cutie, Dr. Dog, Iron and Wine – that we all had loved for years and found inspiration in. We did our version of reaching out into those sonic spaces that we saw them creating."
