With influences ranging from The Beatles and The Doors to Vampire Weekend and Of Montreal, the young trio melds a retro 60’s feel with a modern twist of intricate rhythms and upbeat melodies that permeates onstage and in recordings.
They have shared the stage with national acts Diane Coffee, Jesse McCartney, Car Seat Headrest, Little Green Cars, and The Ready Set, as well as performed to packed audiences across the Mid-Atlantic region at venues such as Black Cat, Rock & Roll Hotel, Jammin’ Java, and Arlene’s Grocery. In August 2014, the band released a self-titled LP to praise from music blogs and listeners alike.
