Need To Meet: The Ettes Video
Two members of the rock trio The Ettes, Coco and Poni, stopped MC's offices to discuss how the band formed, their hidden talents and the many merits of onesies.
Hey, I'm Coco. </p> <p>And I'm Poni. </p> <p>We're The Ettes, and you're watching marieclaire.com </p> <p>I wonder what it's like to be you, every day barely getting through, mother's advice hanging by a thread. The world out there ain't what's in your head. </p> <p>Poni and I met working retail in Los Angeles, and we didn't like it, and we liked each other, and so we started an air band, and then we started a real band. The band lives in Nashville but Poni's from Queens. I'm from Florida, and we all like-- ever since we were young we just moved and lived everywhere, and thank you. </p> <p>We're from America. </p> <p>We're from America, we're-- we're an American band, very dynamic. It's a 3 piece, so I wish Jeremy is in here right now. But it's really just kind of primal, and there's a lot of fun, and there's a lot of, like, cool dynamic between [unknown] three and you, like, kind of change up who's making the most noise, and then the kind of noise we make to get there. It's a really kind of-- it's really an interesting show and it's really fun every time we play, so it's worth checking out. </p> <p>Food. </p> <p>We're usually so hungry [unknown]. </p> <p>Starving constantly. </p> <p>We play a rock show and it just is really draining, and that's how we like it, you know, it's totally therapy in that way, and then we'll go back to the hotel and go to sleep and wake up in the morning and just go, "I'm gonna eat you." Taking my Xanax and then watching Shark Week. </p> <p>Put on a onesie. </p> <p>Poni has a collection of very wonderful onesies that I like, what little children wear to bed. </p> <p>I can close my eyelids without twitching them, one. </p> <p>You turn them out. </p> <p>Could turn out-- </p> <p>Turn them out. </p> <p>Diet Coke. </p> <p>Diet Coke, yeah. Feed the children; fix the drought and the economy. </p> <p>Every child has a onesie. </p> <p>Every child-- onesies? No child goes without a onesie in our utopia, yup. </p> <p>Any sort of non-killing laser you could shoot from your hand just to keep people out of your way and, like, knock them out, and then they're like out like 25 minutes. </p> <p>Goodbye. </p> <p>Goodbye, goodbye, see you soon; see you real soon.
