As quickly as it came together, the band underwent a lineup change, with possibly more on the way. Ransom moved to Los Angeles to tour with Integrity full-time, replaced by the band's producer, Mitch Stewart. Modak was one of four students recently awarded a 2012 Fulbright-mtvU fellowship, and will spend a year in Botswana forming music collectives around a local brand of hip-hop called motswako, while battling the country's HIV/AIDS epidemic.

But so far, the only real obstacle Infinity Girl have faced was coming up with a band name. They eventually settled on a nod to experimental UK band Stereolab. "We didn't have a band name for three months," Eley says. "We were going through a lot of James Joyce." Adds Modak: "We had a list of names from Stereolab songs, and names from Finnegans Wake."

In the end, Infinity Girl is a perfect fit. "There's a feminine aspect, which goes against the gross, disgusting sound we have," Eley says.
