“I was stoked,” said Baker. “I just like being in a band. I think I became a solo musician because I put out a record that I recorded by myself that my band didn’t want.” 

For Dacus, being in the band was the life change she needed at the time. “I felt so hopeless at that time, so to have this idea of making something with them, and seeing them in the future, was a tether to joy,” she said. Dacus added, “I feel towards Phoebe and Julien the way a lot of people feel towards their families. Like, whenever I have downtime, my mind goes to them.”
