Biography

Originally from Newcastle, Australia, the band relocated to Sydney at the start of 2013 to pursue their music and it has proved to be an excellent decision.

Over the last 12 months the band have been killing it at home and overseas. 

They toured nationally with their newest EP "Where We Go" and sold out 2 consecutive shows in their hometown of Sydney. Straight off the back of this the band flew to New York and played three shows as part of the CMJ music festival. They scored a USA booking agent and also recently signed a Publishing dealing with MRM/ Universal, headed by Chris Murphy of INXS fame. 

Their music has continued to grow internationally as well with their songs being added to rotation in countries like Canada, South Africa, England and a heap of play on college radio stations across the US.
The international attention continued when the band was noticed by Japanese indie record label This Time Records, who released a Japan exclusive compilation of their previous EP's on one disc, receiving rave reviews throughout the country.

Earlier in the year the band was given a leg-up in receiving the inaugural First Break Development award from Commercial Radio Australia and the Mushroom Group.

2015 will see the band hitting the road to do two East Coast tours of Australia, and will travel to America in September to tour across multiple states

It is going to be BIG.

Lyrics

Paper Mache Planes

Written By: James Buckingham,Anna Buckingham,Laurie Mahon

I’m writing my name on paper mache planes,
I’ll never be the same
And you took your pencils back and fact is I’ve been slagging,
slandering your name
you wear my heart away, now don’t be crazy,
who’s gonna be changing, I told you at least a hundred time before
no more “I’ll tries”, or singing me lies with your lullabies,
we’ve been through this before

Ooooo, ooo, oo, oo

and I’m writing my name on a paper mache plane,
and I have been awake,
for so long and you struck me in the chest, you knocked out all my breath,
you stole one of my songs

now don’t be crazy,
who’s gonna be changing,
I’ve told you at least a hundred times before,
said enough is enough,
I get so caught up in,
what’s in store

Too many halves in our wholes,
Like sunken ships,
Sinking hearts,
Broken bones
Like sunken ships, sinking hearts, broken bones

Ooooo, oooo, ooo

And I’m writing my name on a paper mache plane
You have been away, from my reach,
So much that I can’t sleep,
so much that I can only see you in my dreams

Now don’t be crazy,
Who’s gonna be changing,
Lord knows that I’ve tried I’ve tried I’ve tried I’ve tried
No more I’ll tries, or singing me lies with your lullabies,
You’ve got me stoned, I’m hypnotised
Ooooooo,
You can take or leave this fight, cause

Too many halves in our wholes,
Like sunken ships, sinking hearts, broken bones
Too many halves in our wholes,
Like sunken ships, sinking hearts, broken bones
Like sunken ships, sinking hearts, broken bones

You love me too,
I know you do,
So why do you say that it’s not true, and do you
Parles vous? cause I’ve been trying to say what I meant too.

Jennifer Lawrence

Written By: James Buckingham,Anna Buckingham,Jake Asser,Laurie Mahon

Riding through the streets we go,
To the sand that fills the cracks in toes,
Where we go,
Where we….

I’ve been chasing waterfalls,
Down into the valley of,
Where we go,
Where we go.

All these noises inside my head,
To the concrete, alphabet
The little row boats that we stole then fled, woh
Will they break me, or find us still hiding in them?

Out here I struggle with the breathing room
(As we cast out from the city)
And you stay silent like a haunting tune
(And we don’t know where we’ll be)
When we go,
Where we go.

All these noises inside my head,
To the concrete, alphabet
The little row boats that we stole then fled, woh
Will they break me or find us still hiding in them?

And we’re not going anywhere, no
We’re not going anywhere, no
We’re not going anywhere, no
We’re not going anywhere, no

And we’ll be honest, like Jennifer Lawrence
X4

Will they break me,
Will they break me,
Will they break me, or find us still hiding in them
