Released on September 26 2005. it sold out its 1,500 copies in a day. A free download in Wicked Owl was then released, followed by their first chart single, Tendency, which hit the top 40 at no.37, Their sound has been described as a mixture of "cyclical guitar hooks and angular rhythmic patterns", and they've been compared to the likes of Radiohead, Bloc Party, New Order, Coldplay and The Cure.
The band are managed by former Drowned In Sound writer Gareth Dobson who DJ's around London under the pseudonym G-Man.
