how are you able to highlight individuality of a particular instrument while still maintaining a cohesive sound? I think something that's really helped us is we kind of are really open minded as a band. So, like someone will bring a song and maybe, you know, it's totally kind of an entirely different direction than we normally go, and we just we just do it anyways. So we're not really trying to put ourselves in this whole like genre of like, Oh, we play this one kind of music So we must stick to it. It's kind of like, Hey, let's try that.
