Formed in the summer of 2015 the band cut their teeth busking around Europe, honing their craft on the streets before returning to Scotland to record their debut single “Breaking or Broken” with Veteran Scottish producer Bruce Rintoul (Fatherson, Twin Atlantic). Released in April 2016, the single was met with wide acclaim including features in national radio & press, including being awarded Radio X “Track Of The Week” and being featured in Jim Gellatlys column in The Scottish Sun.

Following the release the band made their live television debut on The Riverside Show on STV, and were subsequently booked for a string of shows including a headline at the famous King Tuts Wah Wah Hut, as well as a slot at the Isle Of Wight Festival. The band continued to perform extensively throughout 2016 spreading their infectiously funky brand of Alternative Pop music to the masses.

In 2017 the band focused on honing their sound both in the studio and on stage. They played a number of high profile festival slots including the first TRNSMT festival, as well as opening the main stage at Party At The Palace. 2018 will at long last see the band release their long awaited follow up single in September 2018.
