Lately I've been rocking out day and night to Scarlett! They have a very Paramore-ish vibe that I totally dig. I'm loving Fingers Crossed and Scandals. You can check em out and download some of their tunes here. I caught up with their guitarist, Arnley Sena, who took the time out for a little Q&A with me!
