I tested out a few tracks on them and they arent bad. I wouldnt personally listen to them but they are good enough to my ears that I can sit there and listen through their songs. The lead singers voice reminds me of Gwen Stefani a little bit..and thats a compliment! I can see them being a big deal!

Blake and Jason have a side project, The Elected and Jenny Lewis has released a solo albums, one countryesque album featuring the Watson Twins as backup vocalists.

There has been speculation on what the meaning is behind the name Rilo Kiley.  During the early days of the band, former drummer Dave Rock spoke of how they were named after a pair of conjoined twins named Rilo and Kiley, likening it to the close ...
