They describe their influences as "'50s rock 'n' roll, '60s garage and girl groups, '70s punk, '80s American hardcore, and good pop music".
The band recently decided to create the video for their single "Wetsuits" by using crowdsourcing as their method. They’re asking their fans to take photos of any music festivals they attend using Instagr.am and upload them to a special site to be used in their new music video. Fans can tag their selected photos using the hashtag #vaccinesvideo, and the selected photos will be combined to create an animated photo video. Apparently the y are the first band to use Instagr.am images to create a music video. Instragr.am is an iPhone photo sharing app that allows you to take and share retro styled photos, publishing photos a vintage style similar to those found with old Polaroid camera.
