"It's freaking awesome to not be constantly compromising with people who are in the same role as you," she says. "It's different when you're compromising with other creative artists because that feels like a collaboration, which is very different in my opinion. When I started, I was coming off the trauma of having been in a band so long that I had all my guards up. I have the final say, but because I've been writing with such talented people, it's never come to that, which is funny."
Without two members with equal say, and a new manager, Prynn says she's much more comfortable with her career. "In Northern State, I always a bit of the rebellious younger sibling, like, 'If we're late, who cares?' You don't need to be the first band there every single time. It's not that big of a deal," she says. "In Northern State, we never let management do anything because we had to be in charge of everything. Now I have a great manager who does all the things a manager is supposed to do, so you can just be creative and be like, 'I'm in a band. It's my job. It's so cool. Why should we be so stressed out?' There should probably be more pressure but it just feels exciting. I feel like I'm not f---ing anything up yet, but we just started. Ask me in six months."
Any Northern State fans that are hoping to see the Long Island trio reunite someday shouldn't get their hopes up, but it's not out of the question. "It's like when you break up with somebody and you say, 'It's completely done.' Well, you never know," Prynn says. "Maybe we'll do something at some point. I wouldn't rule it out that we'd maybe record something together one day or do a show. But no, we're not an active band right now and this is where all my energy's going. I'm excited and I don't see myself being in that band. I don't see a future at this point."
