Formed just over 12 months ago, the band have already, whilst unsigned, had their demos championed on radio one by Zane Lowe. Additionally, Steve Lamaq on BBC 6 Music proclaimed the ensemble his 'new favourite band'.
Signing to Nude Records (the label's first signing since it's re-emergence) in the summer of '05, the band soon picked up a number of glowing reviews as well as a burgeoning fan base via a sold out UK headline tour in July. The bands debut single on Transgressive Records (also home to early releases by Bloc Party, Mystery Jets and The Subways) was also the labels fastest selling release.
The band are set to enter the studio before the end of the year to start work on their as yet untitled debut album which should be released in the early part 2006.
