Coordinating seven people isn’t easy. A decision as simple as where to eat dinner can turn contentious when more than a few opinions are involved.

Though we didn’t know it at the time, a seven-person interview—all of its interruptions, tangents and contradictions included—was the ideal introduction into the world of World’s Fair. The group thrives on paradox. They’re simultaneously one sound and six; old school and new; competitive and collaborative. Like their native Queens, the collective and their forthcoming record, Bastards of the Party, have mastered the art of unlikely combinations. [Source]
