Wesleying: You studied film at Wesleyan, and now you’re playing in a band that’s really “breaking out” right now. How did you come to make that transition?
Ferm: I joined the band right before I graduated, in January, so that definitely affected it because we were already gaining a little momentum by then. I’d never really been in a band that played so many shows, and it was really exciting and still is, to be with people who take it so seriously. Pretty quickly I switched all my plans when joining the band, I thought I’d focus on this band because I don’t know when I’d get this opportunity again. I’d been playing music for a long time, but it was never anything I wanted to study in college.
