It's hard to nail down a standard genre for Brooklyn band youbet; the sounds on the forthcoming Way To Be, released on May 10, are unabashedly colorful and the labyrinthine song structures radiate a playfulness that is equally confounding and inviting.

I had the privilege of sitting down in Studio A with Nick Llobet, Jojo Quinn, and Micah Prussack for a selection of those new songs live, and a conversation about New York, inspiration, and the experience of being a young band on the cusp of very big things.
