Their sound is like an intersection of The Beach Boys, Weezer and The Isley Brothers. The band have toured with the likes of Courtney Barnett, Wolf Alice and Swim Deep and released a single and an EP both through new label Telharmonium. In January 2018 the band were nominated 'Best New Artist' for the NME Awards 2018.
