We are a pop, pop/rock band with influences such as the Go-betweens and Even. We write songs basically about the relationships we’ve been in and we unashamedly wear our hearts on our sleeves.

Our Debut EP was released in January 2005 and our sound is more acoustically driven now, but still has the rock pop sound.

We have played at Rics, The Zoo, The Rev, The Troubadour and toured Melbourne and Tasmania in 2004.
