"We’ve been playing music for our whole lives. We’ve been playing music professionally for 10 years, at least. Once you do it for so long and grind it out for so long, you know who you are. You know what your identity is and you know what you want out of life and the music industry."
Fun. was featured on CNN's Music Monday. Watch the full interview above.
