The band formed as part of a ‘musical project’ whilst they were all studying separately in Bath - put together entirely randomly and asked to, quite simply, ‘write a song’. Finding common ground with a group fixation on the warmth and nostalgia of 70’s and 80’s pop culture, the bands inspiration all comes from the same sources – The Cure, Cyndi Lauper, Culture Club alongside cult films like ‘Heathers’ and the timeless work of David Lynch.
