Oh, and their instrumentation is an 8 string bass, cello, drums, and glockenspiels (checks #5--8).

Q: Hiye~! I'm a big fan of you guys. It sounds like it should be in an Indie Game or something. Have you thought about pairing up with an Indie Dev and composing the music?
A: Hey D! We would love to be featured in an indie game. We are currently scoring a major motion film as well as a few indie ones. We have extensive knowledge of the video game scene as our bass player was in the VG band "This Place is Haunted" for 9 years and counting. We are longtime video game arrangement artists and would be stoked to have our music be a part of some new up and coming games.
