Formed London 2005. Shaun Milton – vocals and synthesizers, Hermione Love – vocals, keyboards, synthesizers, guitar, Cai-Marle Garcia – bass, Daisy Coole – saxophones, and Eric Young – drums.
First album, recorded with original member Gerald Clark – vocals, piano, ‘Where the silence should be’ released 2006 by Zube Records. A collection of atmospheric, idiosyncratic, piano-based songs. The stripped down production echo Roxy Music (a major influence) along with Chet Baker, seventies-era Beach Boy’s ballards and Tom Waits dreamscapes: romantic and edgy stuff!
Hermione Love joined in 2008 following Gerald Clarks departure to work on his solo project. Since then Shaun and Hermione have writen and recorded the next album`Dog Violets.’ Two new songs, `Moon Valley’ and `Lullaby’ are included on the current Zube Sampler. The sound has evolved since the first album drawing on Hermione’s own background in English electric folk and classical music and Shaun’s on-going synth-obsession with early Roxy Music, Kraftwerk and Cluster. The new album is now out on Zube Records.
A fabulist will tell you: every story is a true story.
