“Such a Big Mistake” begins with discordant, scratchy sound effects and then flows into a funk-based R&B/jazz melody. The beat is tight and crisp, riding beneath braying horns that impose strident colors. Rile’s voice attains a reggae smack and cadence that work well with the melody. The overall feel of the song exudes a retro electro-pop essence.

They just do what they like! Current band members are:
