the soft candy legend begins in the fall 2010. alex(piano) met alex(guitar) through kritzer(guitar) and alex(guitar) knew roy(drums) and kritzer knew kyle(bass) and they all started playing together choosing a band name was hard and the earlier names were unspeakably profane so we spare you those early titles shoegaze jazz chords in 5/4 were cool and everything but something had to change and kritzer lost it so he bounced then adam showed up and made it art and that was cool then alex got tired of it and tried to break us up but then alex showed up and alex left but alex still played keys thus birthed chelsea boots and violet eyelids in a bloodbath of egos gone plural to at least hundreds of songwriters
the band splits after one release show but quickly bounces back when alex(piano) and adam get the idea to get kyle and roy to play with max(guitar), alex’s(guitar) friend from cary. roy leaves and insco(drums) joins max adds guitar for 2 shows then splits for LA with alex(guitar) to form mild high club
meanwhile alex(piano) learns beethoven sonatas 30-32 and plays drums in a sludge metal band and writes electronic music while adam pouts and makes sick art and records some songs with max and then moves to LA with him -- this is 2013
through a weird spiritual paradox alex(piano) adam and roy ended up back in chicago in 2015 and kyle hopped back on and cam(guitar) joined and they played some shows and started writing a new album but roy had to move back to maine and kyle loved roy so much that when he left he decided to become a full time rock climber which he sort of already was
colin(bass) and ben(drums) joined on to fill their places and the band pushed on but donald trump got elected so everyone quit the band before alex and adam could finish the album due to creative differences and the sudden decision to book studio time at an analog studio insco returns this time on bass and allen “balkoni”(drums) joins and adam gets frustrated with the direction and quits and forms wavy id so alex(piano) decides to try his hand at being the lead singer and songwriter and cam insco allen and alex continue the band in new form with new songs but the old album (the lüvrs & the h8ers) is still being finished but as such a new album (in the mirror balloon - not yet released) is born in the interim.
