Guitarist George met vocalist Gaby when they both started studying the same music degree in 2008 and had been writing music together until they recruited drummer Mike Marolia and bassist Sander De Vries in March 2010.
From this time onwards they have continued writing music together as a band and from January 2011 began playing shows around the city of Southampton.

Having added to their ranks in April 2011 with the addition of keyboard player Vince Lowe, they are planning to release their first EP by mid 2011 as well as playing upcoming shows over the next few months at Hamptons, Southampton Joiners, The Talking Heads, Bournemouth Champions Bar, and Southampton’s Ejector Seat festival.
“Their particular fusion makes for a unique sound full of catchy keyboard and bass lines and good rhythms”
“With the combination of the stuttering electronics and intricate guitar riffs merged with the singer’s interesting stage outfit, it’s hard not to be drawn in to this alternative alien rock”
