"Most people, when they hear the record, they haven't heard [our folkier] songs," he says. "I'm sure it may [surprise] them a little bit. But, when writing a record, you can get away with these things. And we like the versatility in it."

For now, that fan base just wants to dance. And, for now, Ishi's all too willing to oblige.
