    technically they are correct, as the word amatuer refers to someone who does something because they love it and not neccesarily for monetary gain. from its latin roots amator, meaning "lover"

    I'm no fan of this EDM bandwagon that seems to have popped up when these guys did, but there seems to be a lot of hate going around these days, can't we all just get along?

    Electronic music has reached the point where an artist can say anything that will bother others to get free viral publicty.

    Underground music should be amateurish, raw, unpolished, emotive and edgy .... duh

    Are they planning to be the next Lady Gaga or something now?
    /shudders at the thought of them posing in surströmming outfits.
    I doubt it'd stink any more than this singular cheeked attempt at generating publicity tho tbqh.
