With regard to a thin voice I discovered this:
The more air that resonates, the richer and fuller the voice sounds. If the tongue is raised high in the mouth, as it usually is in a thin voice, then it takes up more room.
A serious question. Do you think that Debbie Harry's mouth looks like her tongue is raised high in her mouth? Maybe it has something to do with her aristocratic slanting incisors? Do people's looks have any bearing on their voice and how they sound when they sing?

Talking about the band as a unit, it is singular, and takes a singular verb.
Americans and British speakers (for example) differ over this plural/singular thing with 'groups' like "Blondie" and "Chelsea" and "my family". In British English, the plural is used more frequently than in American English.
