After five released singles and joining the Island Records family, the band released their debut EP; “Something Like Heaven”. The band derive influence from many genres and eras but describe their debut record as a “Pop/rock main course with disco/psychedelic seasoning”.
The release of “Something Like Heaven” received strong support from Annie Mac and Huw Stephens (BBC Radio 1), Vic Galloway and Janice Forsyth (BBC Radio Scotland) as well as XFM and regional radio plays in the UK, US, Peru and various european countries. It also set the scene for the band’s first headline tour across the UK and Germany with a host of exciting festival appearances including Sweden’s ‘Where’s the Music?, Norway’s ‘Bergenfest’, Ireland’s ‘Indiependence Fest’ and ‘Open Air Gampel’, in Switzerland.
