Although the dudes say it's nice to be back home after a stretch cramped in the van, they miss some of the quirks of this tour in particular.
Ryan: "There's a couple of hula-hoopers during this tour. At least three hula-hoopers in a row…"
Juan: "Every city's got one, you know?"
Jeff: "Hoopcore is the sorta genre we're creating."
As it turns out, the band's newfound grillwave + hoopcore sub-genre mash-up has found a comfortable corner in the burnout community. I mention all the pot-smoking around me at their homecoming show at Music Hall of Williamsburg. I like weed and I like Small Black, but… what's up with that?
Josh: "We love that."
Juan: "It’s great! Yeah, that’s been happening a lot lately."
Josh: "The best YouTube comments are when someone’s like (strains his voice and squints his eyes), 'I’m so wasted when I’m watching this video, man.'"
Juan: "We just think that they’re really feeling it in that moment…"
Ryan: "It’s a heightened experience."
Juan: "If they think they have left their body when they listen to us, that’s pretty cool. That guy that did—salvia, was it?"
Josh: "Oh yeah…"
Juan: "This one guy did salvia and…"
Josh: "He made a video of him listening to our song while on salvia. He’s some kid from Florida, rolling around in some field to our song. It’s pretty great."
