Biography

In 2001 the band was formed in Madrid by three girls and a boy from different towns of spanish geography. Their first recording was "The only one" (H-Records, 2004), a four-song EP between Garage and guitar-pop which had excellent reviews and caught the attention of the prestigious american label Kill Rock Stars. That made them appear in the compilation "Tracks and fields" (2004), along with bands like Sonic Youth, The Gossip and The Decemberists.

After recording a second EP that was never released, "When Shinning blue" became their first album on Corea Discos in 2006. It was produced by Santi Garcia, responsible of the sound of half of the best spanish independent rock bands. They played around Spain in venues and festivals like Primavera Sound or PopXiriaPop and got excellent reviews from specialized press like Ruta66 or Rock De Lux and a lot of airplay in main spanish radio Radio3.

In summer 2007, after a whole year playing and writing, they entered again Santi Garcia's studio to record their second album. This time it was BCore the label that showed interest in their music, and this "En ningun lugar" shows the evolving pulse of the band in a collection of inspired songs. More maturity, more atmosphere, arrangements, harmonies and variety of structures than ever before in their best album to date. A step forward in the search of their personal luminous way.
