Playground Noise (2010)
This is the band's debut full-lenght album,released in February of 2010.Its rhythm is sometimes slow,giving a sense of introspection,and sometimes is fast like colourful landscapes outside the window of a train.The shiny days of tracks like "Today" and "April 24" dive from the sunshine freshness of love into the fragile,grey hours of "Isolation" and "Divers".To loneliness of "Last Cigarette" mixes with the agony from "Whisper In My Head".And all that,from the romantic look of a band that loves music,above all.
8.Coverd With Snow
9.Whisper In My Head
Swinging Lowdown (2012)
That's their second 7" single,released in last February,and their latest official release to date.The new single,sees the band loyal to their guitar-driven indie sound,with the addition of some new elements to the arrangements as well as the lyrics,which influence stylisticly the tracks' ambience,without threatening the solid foundation of the band's music.More string and brass instruments are brought forward also.
