One of the trio, Amelia Meath, stumbled into a new project after writing a song that didn't make it with her old band. So she approached producer and Megafaun bassist Nick Sanborn. The pairing proved to be a fruitful one and they ended up making a debut album.

Coffee is the first single from that self-titled LP, a bubbly twinkling beat pop song while Play It Right, that aforementioned song is pure happy weird-pop music.

The album's tracks falls between electro and pop with Meath's emotive bright melodies. The band are at SXSW Festival in Austin, Texas, this week, aiming to drum up interest in the album, which will be released in May.
