Rock's most hard-rocking new act in 2013 say the only reason they wear few clothes on stage is because they "sweat a lot."
The pair, who impressed us early in the year when they featured on a weekly playlist with just their fuzzy dual vocals, guitar and drums, told Classic Rock that it's about more than just putting on a good show.
"We get very hot on stage, so wearing less clothing is great because, believe me, we sweat a lot" said Lindsay Troy. "Aside from that, we just love over-the-top rock 'n' roll glamour. We love Bowie, Hendrix, Jimmy Page, Madonna, Tina Turner ... and what they became on stage. It's our way of creating a heightened experience for everyone. The stage is sacred to us, so we're kind of putting on our religious regalia to get up there."
In the same interview, they recall meeting in the unlikely environment of an L.A. crotchet class. "We thought we would have to make up some bullsh-t about how we met," says Troy, "because the truth sounded too nerdy. The irony is that people now think we made up the true story."
