What music or artists inspired you?
We are currently working on our debut EP and the things we are creatively borrowing/shamelessly stealing from are Michel Gondry films, mornings by the river, kissing, Arcade Fire and our own sense of social paranoia.

How did things get started?
The interwebs. Cat videos + musical friendships.

How would you best describe your live show?
Bass, feels, tingles. – (for us anyway)

What shows do you have coming up?
We are playing a special outdoor show at the Adelaide Fringe Club under the stars. Wednesday 24th of Feb, 9:30pm. Annie is dressing up like a bird. A sparkly bird.
Keep an eye on Facebook for more dates.

Tell us about your latest release:
The last song we released was called “Neverland” and it featured an amazing Sydney vocalist called Le Pie. It’s a free download from our Soundcloud page. We are also about to put out a sneaky cover we recorded by The Knife. It will be a free download also.

Where can I get your music?
Soundcloud.
