About their music:
“Our music is heavily beat and synth driven with elements of live instrumentation like guitar, piano and vocal. We write most our tracks with the intention of getting people up to dance and party but at the same time we try to add depth to the songs through meaningful vocals and thoughtful melodies and chord progressions. We usually write our tracks in full on acoustic instruments like piano and guitar and then bring them into the studio and begin producing. It is this process that we believe gives our songs a unique sound. We all have very diverse musical backgrounds and musical tastes and we have all been playing music together since way back in primary school. It is these diverse backgrounds and mutual understanding of one another’s writing and performing styles that is a key aspect of our sound.”
