Exclusive: JSYK Kicks It With Kicking Daisies
Meet our newest obsession: Ben, Carly, Duran, and Caitlin from Kicking Daisies. If you haven't heard of them, they're pretty cool -- the all-teen band members write their own songs and play their own instruments. Oh, and Carly and Caitlin are sisters too.
Obviously we aren't the only ones who love them, judging by the Facebook and Myspace fans they have. And when we met up with Kicking Daisies at the 2010 AllyKatzz Tween Summit in NYC a few weeks ago, they had a lot of fans there too.
During the interview, they were totally chill and didn't hesitate to dish out.
We found out that the two girls can't miss an episode of Degrassi and Pretty Little Liars and that the boys love Dr.Seuss books. The band basically seemed like every other group of teens out there, goofing around and having a good time. Keep reading to see what else they had to say:
