They are a group of foot-stomping indie-folk bandits with a taste for all things duplicitous and danceable. Think a young Arcade Fire + Gogol Bordello perhaps. They have a knack for enticing anyone in earshot to get down and boogie.
Check out their Latest album’s title track, "Futures in the Past" and one of our favorite track off of their Debut EP, "Bullet".
They have already proven to be true press darlings, being named "Filter Magazine’s Band of the Month" and included in LA Weekly’s: The Best shows to see in LA.
