Kihouti was born in a cave in Jericho. Perplexingly, however, its members grew up scattered across the Land of the Free, in Connecticut, New York, Michigan, and Texas. The fates played their sinister games with them individually from a young age, steering Sara to the bass, James to the guitar, Rory the skins, and Leila to various fields of sunflowers, notebook in hand. Fearing the uselessness of engineering and law degrees, the four decided to descend upon Miami to attain higher education in music in 2015. At the University of Miami they met, going about their first year as mere peers. Sometime in their second year, Leila deluded herself into believing James would be of any help with her songwriting, and, by a long-shot, turns out she was right. The unlikely pair realized their creative minds formed a savory, if sinister, stew, and dined to a simple toast: “You wanna start a band?”
