  It was music for the kids in high school who wore worn-out Converse and an air of nonchalance. They didn’t smoke like the others, but drank coffee like water, and listened to Sleater-Kinney with the same kind of aggression. Most were unabashedly convinced they were the only ones the band were singing to.

Kelli, 14, and Peyton, 18, formed in 2009 and have been making self-proclaimed “ugly pop” songs like nobody’s business.
