We first introduced ourselves to the world by appearing on the 2006 compilation 'The Kids At The Club' (How Does It Feel To Be Loved?) alongside indiepop favourites such as Voxtrot, I'm From Barcelona and Lucky Soul.

Since then, we've played gigs across the country, including headlining the first ever Indietracks event on a 1950s steam railway in Derbyshire in April 2007. This event has now turned into an annual two-day festival each July, which several of the band now help to organise. We’ve also been fortunate enough to play shows with some fantastic bands, including The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart, Fanfarlo, The Wedding Present, Butcher Boy and Monica Queen.

In 2008 we even hit the summer festivals, including the Rip It Up festival (Sweden), Offset festival, The Mix festival in London, and, of course, a return to the Indietracks festival.

Our debut single, Cross The Line (Atomic Beat Records, 2007) was described by Simon Armitage as “pure snowshaker pop, and more dressing table than kitchen sink”. This was followed by an EP, Waking UP (Make Do And Mend Records, 2008), which Losing Today described as “Spring-ushering tinglesome guitars, softly shy eyed lilting melodies and hopelessly lovelorn boy / girl harmonies.”

Our debut album, Flight Paths, will be released on 13 July 2009 on the How Does It Feel To Be Loved? label. This will be preceeded by a single, Footsteps, on 15 June. Songs from the album have picked up radio play from Huw Stephens (BBC Radio 1), Gideon Coe (BBC 6Music) and John Kennedy (Xfm).
