Welcome to Birmingham Guys, how’s it going?
Borahm: Hey what’s up?
Adam: How y’all doing?
So what do you guys think of Alabama?
Adam: I love it. It’s just great to see people partying together. People of all backgrounds are hanging out, dancing. It’s just a good scene to see happening in Birmingham.
Borahm: Adam actually made a comment earlier. So where we are from in New York, the way people talk is very flat and straight, but when we get down south it’s just more colorful. The accents and the speech, we are musicians so we are sensitive to sound. So, we love…
