I think it helps harden your ideas to be able to hear them out loud, to speak something through,” Ashley shared in a rare June 2021 interview with iD magazine. “You know, we definitely go by intuition and instinct and it can either confirm that feeling, or if we’re both not feeling right about something, for some reason, we just don’t do it.
