Our debut album, Kisses, arrives October 18th!

We are so excited to announce the release of our debut album, Kisses. Due on October 18, the album is an intimate collection of portraits of the people we love and have loved. It describes kisses on the cheek, a lovers' kiss, and a goodbye kiss among others. The album was recorded in New York City with Nicolas Vernhes at his Rare Book Room Studio - one of the last before the iconic space was sold. Vernhes, who has worked with the likes of Animal Collective, Wild Nothings and The War On Drugs, helped push the band to confident new places, inspiring a new level of synthiness and vocal harmonies on the album. We can't wait for you to hear it, keep up a look out on our socials for more news and sneak peaks soon!

Get your sugar fix from our new video!

We've released a video for our new single Sweet Talking!

It was created by the amazing team at Hiball Productions and is inspired by cult 80's film clips - think raised platforms, soft focus, emphasised colours, neon lights and artificial dessert trickery - you are literally being “sweet-talked” to!

New single 'Sweet Talking' out today!

Our new single 'Sweet Talking' is out today!

The song is all about the excitement of a new relationship expressed via synths, harmonies and a relentless momentum.

The original guitar licks were really dirty and playful, trying to have an Unknown Mortal Orchestra vibe. When we pushed the tempo it really started to pump. To stop it from being a conventional garage track we decided to change up the vocals and try speaking it instead. We were trying to channel David Byrne in ‘Once in A Lifetime’ and Kim Gordon in ‘The Sprawl’. Lyrically, this is our most racy track, with an empowered voice and confident sexuality.

We recorded it in New York City and it's taken from our forthcoming debut album, created with French producer Nicolas Vernhes who has worked with some of our favourite artists including Moodoid, War on Drugs, Animal Collective and Deerhunter.

We team with queens of experimental film, HIBALL for new MV




For our new single Skipping Girl, we teamed up with Melbourne’s new queens of experimental film, HIBALL for a music video.

We loved that they wanted to contrast the sweet harmonies, lush synths and swirling guitar with some eerie undertones and a highly-stylized aesthetic, which we think brings the song to life in a whole new light!

The video draws on the surreal work of American photographer, Gregory Crewdson and the emotive films of Celia Rowlson-Hall, exploring the song’s core subjects in a series of surreal contrasting moments that touch on the complexities of home, family, love, tension, and memory.
