    Summary

    ROLLINS STONE MAGAZINE

    In this issue
    Six of Crows: From break-ins to breakout stars, the band talks overnight success, music and madness, and everything in between.
     
    Eddie Spaghetti once said, "Rock and roll keeps you in a constant state of juvenile delinquency."

    That would explain a lot, as the dynamic within the band can only be described as a decidedly more aggressive version of The Breakfast Club. Namely: a lot of banter—most of which involves a lot of stinging and acerbic one-liners that are just waiting to be immortalized by the internet, enough hijinks to send any authority figure running, and a whole lot of waffles.

    (or, the band au no one asked for but which I wrote anyway)

    Bookmark Notes:

    I'm not really sure what I was expecting, especially given the band's reputation and where they're currently holed up. Maybe some excessive underage drinking and substance abuse. Maybe a couple of shirtless groupies. Maybe some dabbing. Maybe some high stakes gambling or whatever it is teenage musicians spend their money on. What I find instead when I stumble into the nest of the Crow Club is six teenagers all sprawled out in the room.

    "Bullshit!"

    "I just put down my winning pair."

    "I'm calling you out for cheating!"

    "Nina, this is go fish."

    "It also helps that I actually like the music we're making and the company I play with." She gives me a small grin, and small as it is, it is one of those smiles that lights up a room. To put it colloquially, my skin is clear, my crops are thriving, I have 20/20 vision, and am thoroughly glad. 

    After our talk, I look down at my notes to review what's written and by the time I look up again, Ghafa is already gone.
    ---
    Brekker is the first to rise in the mornings, always at 5:30 like clockwork. No later, no earlier. He takes his coffee black and sits by his desk on the bus, staring out the window with an indiscernible expression.

    "It's his scheming face," Fahey tells me in passing one morning.

    "Do you mean songwriting face?"

    "Nope," Ghafa claims, suddenly materializing at my side to grab a box of strawberry Pop Tarts. "Definitely scheming face."

    What the teenage frontman of a rising band needs a scheming face for, I'm not exactly sure.

    Ghafa is usually the next to wake up. She usually sits on the bench across the Brekker's makeshift desk, neither of them doing much talking, but she likes to watch the sunrise. And apparently, Brekker likes to watch her watch the sunrise.
    ---
    And finally, Zenik comes out at close to 10 am, groggy and groaning about it being too early. "I need my beauty sleep," she groans, and then stops and makes eyes at the waffles on the tables. "Ooh, waffles!"

    "We've had waffles everyday this week," Brekker raises his eyebrows at her.

    "Well, you've had the same uneven haircut this whole tour, but I don't say anything, do I?" Zenik snaps and Brekker reaches up to touch his hair, frowning.

    "Actually," Helvar adds. "You have. Several times. But please don't let that stop you."
    ---
    Later this summer, the band is set to open for The Raven Boys, who are on their second international tour. 

    (I reached out to the band regarding this but in lieu of an official statement from their manager Blue Sargent, all I got in reply was a single text from their drummer Ronan Lynch. It's gonna be great dude. Caw caw, motherfuckers.)
