Their self-titled album, released in August 2011, has already been featured on popular websites like Kingsofar.com, Sonicscoop, and Gobbler. They are currently setting up shows around the US. Only a year and a half ago, all four members were in a rock band, touring around the US, and sharing the bill with artists like Natasha Bedingfield, Plain White T's, Evan And Jaron, Brand New, Talib Kweli, J. Cole, P.O.S., and Max Bemis of Say Anything. In addition, they have played at festivals such as, Bamboozle and RutgersFest. With their dreamy pop sound, lush four-part harmonies, chest-pumping grooves, and songs that induce feelings of hope and love, they give profound insight into their lives'.
