Until its deformation, the band line-up consists of Linda Jarvis on vocals and keyboards, Thom Hill on guitar, Will Young on bass guitar and Dayo James on drums. In what seemed to be an unfortunate event in the life pf the band, their original drummer Peter Hayes died in June 2012.

Also, as founding members of the band, were Kier Finnegan and Steven Green.

The Band Reception

  • “something striking, singular and mercurial” in a 9 out of 10 review at Drowned In Sound;
  • “a rather extraordinary sonic party full of elegiac beauty” in The Line Of Best Fit’s 9 out of 10 review;
  • “dazzling, hypnotic, deliriously seductive and gloriously prodigious” in Clash Magazine’s 8 out of 10 review; and
  • “effortless” in a 4 out of 5 review from The Times.

Along with the many receptions, the album was Rough Trade Shops’ Album of the Week, and was further listed in NME’s Top 75 Records of 2012, while also taking the position #8 in The Line Of Best Fit’s Records of 2012, and in the top 60 of Drowned In Sound’s Albums Of 2012.
