The Submarines are a Los Angeles-based indie pop duo, whose latest album is entitled "Honeysuckle Weeks." The group's two members, John Dragonetti and Blake Hazard, were romantically linked -- then romantically unlinked -- before forming the ensemble. They came back together while sharing a studio and hearing the breakup songs each was writing about the other.
