Hey, it's Madi Diaz and you're watching marieclaire.com. Let's go, oh-oh-oh. To a place I know-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh. When I first started really writing songs, I was, you know, 19 and I was first living in Boston. I would take, you know, my notebook and my guitar out on my fire escape and go and sit and play, and try to write songs. It's interesting pop, I hope, or thoughtful pop, I hope. You know, we definitely kinda dropped like Beatles influence and, you know like a, a Feist influence, or you know, a Dr. Dog influence but we're poppier than all that stuff. We recorded it in the middle of nowhere in Virginia where it rained the entire week, and then, we recorded it in Nashville for a week where it rained the entire week. And then, we flew out to L.A. and recorded it for a week in L.A. where it rained the entire week. So, it was a rainy record. I don't think I really think properly until I've had at least a cup of coffee. So, probably just- the coffee, where's the coffee? I don't, I should get one. I've- I'd- I should get one. I laugh a lot out of nervousness but it kinda turns any situation maybe into a better situation than it is, maybe like accidental positivity. Easy and can be washed in anything, anywhere. I would be lying to myself if I said anybody other than Taylor Swift and it's only because I think that we might be in real life best friends. It's between invisibility and shape shifting; probably shape shifting, 'cause then you can just turn yourself into a wall, right? Yeah, [unknown]. Jersey Shore, I had to. Shania Twain, Any Man of Mine. Any man of mine, better walk the line. 'Better show me a teasin', squeezin', pleasin' kind of time-
