Arif added: “Every day, for a year and a half – any chance we got, be it midnights or even at 3 am – we tried to put in our effort and make music.”
“It’s been an amazing experience. We are just starting and hopefully, this year is going to be a big year for us. We have planned a lot of things for this year, and we are also planning to drop an album – our first big project called ‘Motion Sickness’, and we are really excited about that,” Lil Late said.
