About the new single, nylon.com reports:
Right off the bat, “Stuck” bops to a bouncing guitar line that tips a hat to West Coast cool, brimming with youthful wonder. There’s nostalgia packed into “Stuck,” too. It sounds like your ideal prom night song: easy to sway to, easy to dance with another. It has all the markings of a stellar debut: catchy without being an earworm and a refreshingly different sound from the often cookie-cutter hits that dominate the charts.
The girls in the band have been together for years and play at different venues around Utah. The group is unique, spunky, and total crowd pleasers. They have several concerts scheduled for this summer. On 1 July they will be performing at Jazzy’s in St. George Utah, on 11 August they will be presenting the Twilight Concert Series in Salt Lake City, Utah, and on 20 August they will appear at the Gooseneck Music Festival in Torrey, Utah.
Cristal Ramirez is the lead singer and primary songwriter for the band. She has a personality that is hilarious and easy to love. Cristal knows how to please a crowd, and her voice is amazing. She is not only devoted to the band but is equally devoted to her many fans.
Alisa Ramirez is the younger sister of Cristal. She plays the drums for the band. Alisa is sporty and not so girly which adds a different personality type and variety to the group. She works hard and gets into what she is playing. Everyone loves watching her perform.
Mckenna Petty is the bass player for the group. She puts her all into the songs she plays, and it is apparent that she loves the stage and playing. She is quite athletic and loves the outdoors.
Katie Henderson is the lead guitarist for the band, but she also does harmonies and writes some of the songs. She has been playing the guitar since she was little. The best way to describe her personality is happy and mellow. She is a great addition to the band. Her brother is also in a group. They love playing at shows together and are musically talented.
There is no doubt that this quartet has a fantastic future ahead of them in the music business.
