Comfort 2012–2013

At a New Year's Eve party in December 2011 Sasha Carlson, formerly of Pineapple Head, Colours and The Coshercot Honeys/Brain Slaves first brought up the idea of forming a band with Toto Vivian, whom he had met on a previous trip to London in 2010 In February 2012 Carlson moved to London from Australia and began writing and recording songs with Vivian in Vivian's flat in Hackney The duo then expanded their lineup to include Vivian's former INTL bandmate Tom Beal on bass, who had also previously been a member of Shropshire band Ripchord INTL also featured Oliver Burslem and Andy Jones, who went on to form Yak The lineup was completed with drummer Jacob Moore, who was a member of Auckland band The Checks, and joined the band shortly before Splashh's first concert on 2 May 2012

In 2012, the band signed to Luv Luv Luv records and released three 7" singles "Need It", "Vacation" and "All I Wanna Do" in the UK The band released their debut studio album Comfort in the US on 4 June 2013 via Kanine Records, and in the UK on 2 September 2013 via Luv Luv Luv Records Despite recording songs as a full band with Death in Vegas' Richard Fearless producing, Comfort was compiled from the earliest demos recorded and produced by Vivian in his home studio setup in London with just he and Carlson performing Vivian confirmed the band's second album would be recorded as a full band, that the band regularly jammed in soundchecks and were becoming a more collaborative unit

Through 2013, the band toured extensively, playing festivals worldwide such as Field Day festival, Benicassim, Liverpool Sound City, Best Kept Secret Festival Netherlands, Midi Festival France, Hultsfred Festival Sweden and Reading and Leeds Festivals The band also undertook a full US tour in April 2013 playing with The Generationals and Blood Red Shoes

Honey + Salt – discarded album 2013–2016

In November 2013 Carlson re-located to New York City where he began working with producer and multi-instrumentalist Jaie Gonzalez, with the duo performing shows together as Splashh in Brooklyn through November and December 2013 In February 2014, Vivian and Beal joined the pair to continue work on their second album, with Carlson stating that it would be more synth and loop based than their debut album On 1 March 2014, the band announced that they had parted ways with drummer Jacob Moore, the reason for his departure was not commented on

The band sporadically toured the US throughout 2014, performing mostly new material, including shows at SXSW and the CMJ festival in New York City New songs premiered included "646", "Comeback Soon", "Under The Moon", "Pure Blue", "Feel It 2" and "Colour It In"

On 29 September 2014 the band posted the music video for "Colour It In" and put the song on Soundcloud On 10 October 2014 before Splashh's CMJ 2014 performances the band announced that Brooklyn-based, Australian-born musician Angus Tarnawsky would join the group on drums Tarnawsky is also a member of Apache Beat and has toured with Temples, Brian Chase and AuRa

In March 2015 Splashh played their first shows in the UK since November 2013

Comeback single "Pure Blue" was released as a 12" single in November 2015 via Luv Luv Luv The song was recorded in Vivian's London home studio and features Dominic Boyce, from Peace, on drums It was mixed by New York-based producer Nicolas Vernhes

The band split time between London and New York from 2014 to early 2016, working on material for their second album entitled Honey + Salt, commenting on the change in direction, Vivian commented that they had "always wanted to move into more experimental, synth-based dance music", with Carlson adding that they had become "massively bored" of their previous material

Waiting a Lifetime 2016–present

On 4 May 2016 the band announced that they had signed to the Cinematic Music Group label and were set to record their second album Waiting A Lifetime in New York the following week - abandoning the previous work over the last 2 years and returning to their garage rock guitar sound It will be the first album to feature bassist Beal and drummer Gonzalez's playing and songwriting contributions The album was recorded in Vernhes' Rare Book Room studio and finished in June 2016 Waiting A Lifetime was released 14 April 2017 via Cinematic Music Group and Pod / Inertia Music in Australia and New Zealand
