Developers and marketers have no clearly defined rules about what music belongs with which building.

Buildings with long histories or those that are not specifically aiming at young buyers often use classical. Jazz, with its myriad styles, tends to cross geographical and architectural boundaries.

DiS first saw you at this year's SxSW. It was pretty crazy, and a lot of people were talking about you. Do you think that SxSW helped 'break' you as a band? Or were things in the works beforehand?

SxSW was a lot of fun for us. It’s such a constant process to see what hits for people and you never know who's seeing you, and when. At the very least SxSW was the place where we signed the record contracts, though obviously both were in deep discussion for a while before signing the papers in Texas. We had a great time down there, though it was our momentum as a band the year leading up to SxSW that got us there. I think our greatest breakthroughs definitely came beforehand, but again, you never know who's seeing you when.
