"I think the heat got to me, I was enraged by the end, and I know why I was enraged, but I'm not gonna tell anybody, but I was so genuinely angry," Bryan told Spinner. "It was very truthful."
Band mate Rhydian Dafydd concurred that the honesty helped make their set one of the early day highlights. "It's whatever comes out at that point in time, we don't over think it. These people really sense it if it's contrite," he says.
And they were also trying to win over the crowd, which was a challenge Dafydd welcomed. "I think it feels like a fight sometime on stage," he said. "It's almost like a fight for complete release of inhibition, it's important for it not to feel too easy I think. I think it's that struggle that is actually something this band really enjoys."
After winning the fight, the band was off to enjoy some of the Coachella highlights. "We've never seen Arcade Fire, go and catch some Arcade Fire. I fear we missed Elbow," Bryan said.
And more than that, they were looking forward to getting in the spirit of the fest. "Especially when you've played, it's always nice to just mill around and see what catches your attention as well. We don't have much of an agenda," Dafydd said. "We have a schedule every day, I think today we have no agenda," Bryan added.
