    These guys at Thekla in Bristol were ammaaazing! I would say they sound like Calvin Harris, Micheal Jackson, and Jazz all mixed into one luscious bomb of dancable music! Absolutely top act live-so much energy and quirkiness! Id recommend everyone to go see them :p

    Saw these guys at Beachdown and though they are mental, they were good fun to! Definately worth a listen and fun to watch their antics on stage if you can.
