Bebo did an interview with NERD and they all seemed quite comfy with one another. Pharrell reminds me a lot of my friend Brian in this clip.
He also mentions that “seeing sounds” is an actual thing that happens to certain people its not just the name of their album. I knew of this before and I meant to post about it, but things happen. Anyway, its called synesthesia and its when certain people can actually see sounds as colors and shapes in their mind.

In spatial-sequence, or number form synesthesia, numbers, months of the year, and/or days of the week elicit precise locations in space (for example, 1980 may be “farther away” than 1990), or may have a (three-dimensional) view of a year as a map (clockwise or counterclockwise).
