Mia and Johnny.
Where are you from?
Cleveland, Ohio USA
Name of band:
Petals And Thorns.
Who else is in your band?
Just the two of us.
How would you describe yourselves?
We are a dissonantly melodic electronic, rock duo. Lead by the beauty of a female voice and fuelled with poetic verses of insight through introspection and observation. All the while, the music is set to the back drop of a synthetic groove with an accompanying soundscape that ranges from haunting piano tones, sine waves, and dirty crunchy guitars.
Who are your main influences musically?
Mia: Delerium, Garbage, The Doors, Tori Amos, Julee Cruise.
Johnny: Nine Inch Nails, Type O Negative, The Birthday Massacre, Switchblade Symphony, A Perfect Circle.
What do you hope to achieve in music?
We would just like to get out of Cleveland someday.
What has been the highlight of your career so far, and why?
Shooting our own DIY, self produced video, "Habitual Ritual".
And what’s the moment you want to forget?
Paying to play out of our own pocket.
If you had to pick just one of your songs to represent your music, what would it be and why?
"Habitual Ritual"; it's the catchiest.
Where can we listen to it?

Anything else you’d like to say about your band/music that I forgot to ask?
We'll be opening for "Lestat", on October 12th at Peabody's. In addition to that, we've been putting together a podcast featuring some of our musical influences, as well as promoting some of our friends. The podcast should be available in the next couple of days. :)
