If you need us to spell out the sexual innuendo in any of that last sentence then award yourself 100 innocence points and prepare to listen to a song that to you is all about food and to us is about something else entirely.
I really rather like that. I hope you do too. The track is available as a free download on bandcamp and appears to be a demo. I know nothing about the band other than that it seems to consist of four young women and is based in Orlando, Florida. If you can fill in any of the blanks then drop us a line.
