The pair, who live in Chinatown but are not dating, make music obsessed with what Bach calls “grand stories of epic proportions.” Like, for example, the outerspace ghosts of Scientology tome Dianetics. Or the bizarro world Prince created in Purple Rain. Anything, really, that comes from a very committed, singular vision. “The type of music where you listen to it,” Bach says, “and you think, this person really got lost in something inside of themselves while they were making it.”
Or Kate Bush.
“You listen to her music,” Bach says, “and it’s like, I don’t know what the fuck she was thinking, but she was definitely thinking something.”
