Sir Elton John even publicly labelled them his 'favourite band of the moment'. After earning triple j feature album, the band went on to sell out all 10 shows across the country on their national Sponge Cake tour, marking them as one of Australia’s most prolific upcoming acts.
The breakout act have come full speed towards 2018's tail end with their latest single For the Record, with this year seeing the band announcing their biggest Australian tour to date - stopping over at iconic venues like The Enmore in Sydney, and the Forum in Melbourne - and they show no signs of stopping there.
