Aside from four-part harmonies that melodically intermingle on stage, each band member has also had to figure out for themselves how to survive in a touring band.

Mostly it is: "Who is able to withstand this lifestyle?" Li Pino asks. Between living together, touring together and having a business together, the four Seattleites remain an independent musical force as they manage themselves and find success amongst the difficulties of being a burgeoning band.

Watch a conversation with the four ladies below, and then check back in on the fourth Monday of every month for a new Interview Series episode from Pickathon 2016.
