Soon enough the band garnered attention and buzz, allowing them to fill some of the most esteemed music venues in Birmingham and perform in music festivals. While creating creating their album, Lady Legs drew inspiration from their shared love of The Strokes, The Rolling Stones, The Pixies, and Real Estate.
