You put in hard work with promoting the first album and touring. Did you get a chance to take a vacation?

Princeton: After the tour, we had a two-month break to catch up on school and hang out with family.

Ray Ray: My bed was the best place. Being on the road, you lose a lot of sleep. So when you get home, you just want to lie down. When we get home, we live out of our suitcases because we know something will come up. But sleep was the best vacation.

You have mature subject matter on this new album, so how about doling out some advice — what’s the best way for a high schooler to get a girl’s attention? Should he write a love note?

Princeton: A turnoff is when you have your friends talk for you. He has to be very direct and talk to the girl himself.

Prodigy: I think you should be natural and just do you. Don’t overthink it and try too hard. Say what’s on your mind, but don’t overdo it. I don’t think love notes still work.

Ray Ray: It’s like when you see the girls who are trying too hard, you always notice the ones who are chill and laid back. You have to be honest with the girl and not be too aggressive.
