Lead singer Cassie Ramone from Vivian Girls didn’t evade my camera this time. When the group was in town back in late 2008, I spoke with Katy and Ali, bassist and drummer from the all girl trio. Vivian Girls emerged as part of the Brooklyn music scene over the past few years, along with other indie bands such as Yeasayer and MGMT. Among my favorite tunes from V Girls are “Second Date” and “Lake House.” A clip from the latter song is featured in the video below. The interview took place on the legendary burgundy leather couch at The Smell in Downtown L.A.
