1. Where did you get the idea for the band name, you planned it or came out just like that?

We got it from a psychology textbook. We were learning about the the eye and the brain, and the retina is the what translates light into color. We think thats similar to what music does.

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

We don’t really play a specific genre, we play whatever we can and however it comes out. We get labeled as punk a lot of the times, but we want to play anything from country to punk, not get tied into something.
