The famous snowboarder and skateboarder formed the band in Los Angeles with childhood friends Anthony Sanudo (guitar) and Lena Zawaideh (drums) and recently added members Jared Palomar (bass) and frontman Davis LeDuke. White plays guitar in the group and is also sporting a radically different look. 

First single “Caught Inside.” a summer song heavy on harmonies and indie-centric chord progressions, is currently streaming on SoundCloud. A tour is set to kick off next month in New York City and run through July and August.
