"For the longest time," Lay says, "I just kind of listened to what everyone else was into." Then she heard The Velvet Underground. "That was the door that I walked through like, 'Oh my god, everything's gonna be okay.' I started listening to X, Animal Collective, Bob Dylan. Björk changed my fucking world! You find that one thing, and it becomes a gateway." - Shannon Lay
