Biography

The band made their debut radio appearance in August 2009, when the track "Amsterdam" was played on BBC Oxford Introducing Increasing support from BBC Introducing followed, with the band's first release, a cassette entitled "Amsterdam" seeing release in late 2010

The band released a 7" vinyl of the track "Iron Deer Dream" through independent record label, Young & Lost Club, on 21 February 2011 - before signing a record deal with Mercury-division Vertigo Records Fixers' first official single, "Crystals", was released on 1 April 2011 - preceding the release of the extended play, Here Comes 2001 So Let's All Head For The Sun; which saw release on 6 May through Vertigo Records

A second single, "Swimmhaus Johannesburg" was released on 31 October, with a second extended play succeeding it The EP, entitled Imperial Goddess of Mercy was released through Vertigo Records on 17 December, including early tracks "Evil Carbs" and "Majesties Ranch"; the latter of which was performed as part of BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge on 15 January alongside a cover of "What's My Name" by Rihanna

The band headlined the BBC Introducing stage at Reading and Leeds Festivals in August 2011

NME described the Oxford band as "the most capable of thinking their way to break-out success with their avant-garde take on The Beach Boys"

We'll Be The Moon was released on 18 June 2012 to critical acclaim Michael Hann of The Guardian wrote that the album was 'proof that psychedelia need not be an exercise in retro genre pastiche - a terrific album' and Raplh Moore proclaimed in Mixmag that 'Your favourite new band may well have arrived' The album was The Times album of the week, calling it 'an album so beautiful and devastating as any record company could hope to release in 2012 It is the melancholia underlying We'll Be The Moon's sonic beauty that proves, ultimately, overwhelming'

On 16 February 2015 the band announced that they had completed their sophomore record
