Biography

HE BAND STARTED OFF IN WINTER 2009 AFTER A BRIEF SESSION IN WINTERTHUR. THE GUITARIST NIKI AND KEYBOARDPLAYER OLIVER, TWO BROTHERS, ALREADY PRODUCED MUSIC TOGETHER, BUT WITH JANINE WHO SANG IN SEVERAL BANDS BEFORE, THE SONGS BECAME A FACE.

WITH HAVING A CLEAR VISION IN MIND THEY WENT ON PRODUCING THEIR FIRST SONGS LIKE "BODYHEAT" AND "FREEWAY". THE POP DRIVEN KEYBOARD SOUNDS, COMBINED WITH THE ROCK & FUNK ELEMENTS OF THE GUITAR, SEEMED IDEAL TO ROCK IT ON STAGE. AFTER CONCERTS AT CLUBS LIKE BAZILLUS, ABART, DYNAMO ETC. THEY ATTENDED AT THE ROCK HIGHWAY SEMIFINAL AT THE ALTE KASERENE AND EVEN GOT THROUGH TO THE FINAL, WHICH BROUGHT THEM ON STAGE OF THE VOLKSHAUS IN ZURICH. EACH TIME THEY PUT ON A SHOW FULL OF LIGHT EFFECTS AND A EYE-CATCHING CLOTHING STYLE.

NOW AFTER MANY HOURS THE BAND HAS SIT TOGETHER PRODUCING MUSIC IN THEIR CELLAR AND AFTER PUTTING ALL THEIR IDEAS AND EMOTIONS IN OVER A DOZEN NEW SONGS, THEY FINALLY CHOSEN THREE TO GET MIXED AND MASTERED FOR THEIR NEW DEMO-CD AT FAMOUS POWERPLAY STUDIOS IN ZURICH. AT THE SAME TIME THE STARTING SIGNAL WAS GIVEN FOR THE SHOOT OF THEIR MUSIC VIDEO „ON THE RUN".

AS THEY HAVE THEIR ROOTS VERY MUCH IN THE CORNER OF POP AND ROCK, THEY WERE ABLE TO BRING IN MORE AND MORE THEIR PASSION FOR DANCE RHYTHMS. THEY FEEL THAT THE BAND HAS FOUND A STYLE WHERE THEY REALLY CAN BRING IN THEIR IDEAS AND IMPROVE THEIR MUSIC FROM DAY TO DAY.

WE FEEL VERY FORTUNATE TO EXPRESS OURSELVES IN MUSIC, LIVING OUR PASSION AND HOPE YOU'LL HAVE FUN GOING THROUGH OUR NEW WEBSITE!

LET THE SHOW GO ON!
