Band members David Farrugia and Marcus Wagstaff met in High School.
In 1999, Marcus moved to the U.K. and his teeth were cut playing the pub music scene in south-west London's most punctual band.
David stayed closer to home - playing in Adelaide bands including "Sex Hurricane 1975" and "Pornland".
In the pre-Skype era, dual-hemisphere music-making was limited - but long-distance collaboration continued and, in 2006, Marcus and David, finding themselves in the same time-zone, jammed with original material.
Poppy tunes with a dash of country tang - music for that perfect summer day. A bit like Simon & Garfunkel jamming with the Beatles in Nashville circa 1956. One of the first songs written was "Adelaide". Using their shared memories of growing up, this pair hit their stride.
Distance makes the music-writing grow fonder - what started as something of an inconvenience became the something that makes this music so special.
Negotiating the dateline, equator and multiple passport controls; over the next couple of years Marcus and David met in different locations around the world to write music.
Malta, the American Deep South, Bali - each journey imparts something different to the melody and combined, their travels provide the inspiration for the title of their first album - "Sketches from the Road".
