We are all driven by artistic integrity and have attempted to scrub our project clean of insincerity by staying true to our musical roots. Since our formation in April (2012) we have played several major events in San Antonio such as The Big Spill music festival (headlined by Best Coast and Motion City Soundtrack), The Tejano Music Awards official after party (with Texas Tornadoes member Flaco Jimenez), and The Current's loal music concert at Nightrocker Live. We are releasing our EP 'The Low Commotion' on October 20th.


Our single 'Seattle Lights' has received airplay on the indie music station KRTU.
