Their first release, a double A side single Too Late/The Promise brought the band widespread critical acclaim.

The band's outstanding single Black Swans went straight to number one in the Beat 100 music chart.

Following that up is their highly anticipated new single Every Rise which is another uplifting and anthemic slice of Indie Pop. It was released recently and is featured on Ralph's Radio KC Indie Show on January 15th. It's a prime example of them taking their musical influences and forging them into their own individual style.
