Kevin once said in an interview that "the Babies are a cool freedom to have," because they're so loose, and because "we don't push ourselves too hard." Is it getting easier as it goes on or harder because you're pushing yourselves more?
Cassie: I think anything in life gets both easier and harder as it goes on, in different ways. It always evens out to create a perpetual grey shade. It's easier to perform now, but it always causes more stress when there are more eyes on it. When you're starting out and nobody even knows who you are, it's much easier because you can do what you want and screw up and it doesn't matter.
Kevin: I feel like when we started the Babies, we were going into high school and now we're graduating college. There are some pluses there, but we're in the real world now.
