According to their website, vocalist Daniela, drummer Paulina, and bassist Alejandra from Monterrey, Mexico formed the band — The Warning —more than a year ago. While they initially started out with covers, they now compose original tracks as well. Over the last few months, their videos have gone viral.

"Me and my sisters seem to complement each other. What one lacks, the other has. We’re just a great team. We’re family! says Paulina on their official website, thewarningband.com
Now, these siblings are setting higher goals. The girls dream of attending a five-week summer program at the internationally renowned Berklee College of Music and have begun a set up a GoFundMe campaign to finance it, which they hope to promote with their music. Already a number of people have started supporting the girls though GoFundMe as well as by gifting them with musical instruments.
"Behind every successful musician, there are a number of people who’ve helped along the way. Please join Daniela, Paulina and Alejandra on this next leg of their muscial journey to share their passion and joy of music with the world," says their official website.
Besides a musical educations, these girls also hope to make a television appearance, on the The Ellen Degeneres show. Their website urges fans to email Ellen to invite the siblings over, saying "If you enjoyed The Warning’s music videos then please email Ellen and request the girls be guests on The Ellen Degeneres show!"
