This week, we sit down with the band members of Piramid Scheme. If you’re a longtime listener, you might recognize members Lisa Said and Darrien Day (they’ve been on the show before)! They were kind enough to invite us to the suburbs of Maryland, where they gave us their ‘Perfect Pop’ selections. Today, we discuss the Toronto-based band Alvvays.
Piramid Scheme’s debut EP is “Get Rich Quick Too.” Visit piramidscheme.com
