Instruments and style

The band writes with guitars, bass guitars, synthesizers, soft synthesizers, percussion, drum machines and drum samples Within a few months of working together they had the collection of songs that formed the backbone of their first album Many of these songs have appeared as single releases and on various compilations including the Kitsuné Maison compilations Their style has been variously described as disco revival and depressive disco They have been lauded as punk funk standard bearers and in their early days were described by Paul Lester of The Guardian as being "unsigned and undeniable"


Early live performances

The band started playing in London in April 2008 at venues such as Club Mother Fucker, Dollop, YoYo, White Heat and Durr In their early days they also made a number of festival appearances at events like Secret Garden Party, Glastonbury festival, SXSW, La Route du Rock, Rencontres Trans Musicales, Montreux Jazz Festival, CMJ, Berlin Festival and Art Basel Miami This laid the foundations for the live following which saw the band tour solidly during 2009 and 2010 A highlight of their early live work was victory in the Glastonbury Festival emerging band competition in March 2009

Early single and compilation releases
