On who's passive, and who's aggressive:

Alisa Xayalith (AX): We're a bit of both, individually — in the best way.

On their upcoming LP:

Thom Powers (TP): I don't think there's a conceptual theme behind our music. It's just a personal expression. It's more about an aesthetic theme. I think this will be more modern, a little bit more pop and more electronic whereas the last record was more rock. We don't know when it'll be out yet — I think we might be done with the writing, but we're still in the middle of recording. 

On what they'll change about their early career:

AX: I wouldn't change a single thing. I like looking back at how young and inexperienced we were at the beginning. It's reassuring for me to see how I've changed and advanced.

TP: My haircuts.

On experimental hair colours:

AX: You know what, I think I really threw myself into dyeing my hair so much to the point where I never want to do it again. I went through a phase where I wanted to experiment with my look. And now that I've done that, I can say I'm done dyeing my hair.

TP: It was very stressful. She dyed it too much and it broke off at the back.

AX: My hair worries became the band's hair worries.

On what they want for Christmas:

TP: I actually like homeware stuff. I want new curtains. I'm very domestic at the moment. Real partiers... we're totally rock and roll.

AX: I want one of those KitchenAid machines where you can make everything: Breads, cakes, cookies. We've spent a year and a half not touring so I got into being at home, cooking and nesting.

On New Year resolutions:

AX: Oh my god. I don't know. I haven't thought that far. Well, trying to finish this album by a certain time. It's the only looming thing in my life right now.

TP: Mine's to cut down on drinking. I quit smoking last year. Just by cold turkey. I said, "this is stupid", and stopped.
