BIOGRAPHY

When the guys decided it was time to push their creative boundaries beyond building lethal ski-jumps and plummeting down the Tyrolean Alps, forming a band seemed a natural progression. They spent seven years refining their special blend of Electronic Pop with a vision to producing high-quality music; to inspiring and entertaining their audiences; and to remaining responsive and true. From the start they felt more comfortable writing and singing in English, partly inspired by Ramon who is a native English speaker. In the summer of 2011 their single “Set my Sail” (SONY Music) captured nationwide attention and climbed to #14 on the national charts. For they performed extensively at gigs in Austria and Germany, at several music festivals including the Donauinselfest, Alternative Escape in Brighton, UK as well as supporting the likes of Thirty Seconds To Mars, The Wombats, Nena and Friska Viljor. Their live performances are always highly energetic, interactive and draw repeat audiences. They spent most of 2013 back in the studio writing and producing a new generation of songs for a new full-length album. In 2014 ‘LOVERS ON THE RUN’ and ‘HELP OUR SOULS’ were released and received widespread recognition resulting in a single deal on a remix with (EPIC Amsterdam) and two shows at the SXSW 2015 in Austin. With the generous support of the Austrian Music Fund, their new album will be released in 2015, an album packed with more soul, funk and beat.
