Experimental indie rockers Stiletto! say the primary thing that has kept them a band for the last seven years is their fans. “We have always been very personable with our fans,” bassist Mike DeCarlo says, “and more than anything, want to give back to them for coming to our shows. The loyalty we receive from [them] is breathtaking.” DeCarlo also credits the band’s eclectic personal tastes—ranging from a love for R&B and Motown to a passion for post-punk and hardcore—have played an important part in making Stiletto! who they are. “The spectrum of the music we each listen to is prevalent in our songs, and each person's contribution to our style is what makes it so unique,” he says. The band are looking forward to releasing their first full-length this winter.
