Enjoy our conversation below. Tell us about yourself- where are you from? I was born in San Francisco and have been living in the Bay area my entire life.

By now if you haven’t seen the Neon Bandit’s “sizzler”, I’ll be blunt with you, you’re missing out. We have conveniently included it here, below, for your viewing pleasure.

One of the cool things about creating this video that was unlike most things Sammy and I seem to be working on these days, is that the video came together pretty quickly.
