Their sound is a blend of West African highlife, Indie guitar music, soul and folk and they cite a wide range of influences from Fela Kuti to The Cure.

Their single Sign And Wonda is a regular on the Lagos radio airwaves and their debut album Seven Days in Lagos is due for release in October 2010.
