In Honest Iago, our drummer Craig and I generally take Matt's very catchy songs and make them weirder and (maybe) more interesting. When Craig moved to Los Angeles in 2010 and electronic rock duos were all the rage we thought it would be cool to learn how to write catchy pop songs, so we started Better Looking People With Superior Ideas. The name is a misquote of an LCD Soundsystem lyric.

I'm pretty sure we still haven't written a catchy pop song, but we're very happy with whatever mishmash of genres music we've been writing. One blog said we made them feel like they were "watching an art house film about a human falling in love with a robot." One time we played in a light up geodesic dome. This band is a blast, and has a lot of unreleased music we are itching to play live, but it's been on hold while we work on the next Honest Iago record.
