Fortuitous hurling indeed for a band who are about to head off on their third trip to SXSW later this month, and who, if there's any justice in the music world (there isn't), should become a national name by the time the next one rolls around. Have they learned anything on how to take the leap?

"There's no secret, just baby steps and hard work," Molini says. "Consistency, and just keep on rocking," Tuite adds.

And maybe strike the right balance between hard work and fun?, I ask the duo, whose giggling good spirit in the interview is kind of a shocker compared to the dour vibe I'd seen on stage. "Very much so," Molini says. "We were kind of unbalanced for a bit, we're a little intense about our music. We probably need to lighten up a little bit."

Just not on record. I kinda like the way they bum me out.
