Gruzman told Dave Ruby Howe of In the Mix how the duo had contacted Rosselli to get help with their first original track.[3][4] Rosselli had met Gruzman in mid-2009, he was interested in using her skill on xylophone, however, after "[I] heard her sing and I just knew that she had to do the song. We sent the track over to her and she smashed it. We were so lucky to be able to work with her, she's just great".[3] It was listed at No. 19 on the Hottest 100 of 2010, by listeners of national radio station, Triple J.[4] As a remix it was featured on MTV's partnered website Ourstage through American rap artist, The Kid Bilal, as "She Craves Me".[7] It was used as the soundtrack to Myer's 2010 Spring Racing Carnival TV commercial campaign.

In April 2012 Roselli issued a solo single, "Silk", which received rotation at Triple J by Richard Kingsmill.[10] Chad Hillard of HillyDilly website praised her vocals "it's as if everything else you were thinking about disappears. Stress, anxiety, whatever, once her voice hits you, everything dissipates".[11] In October 2012 she released another single, "Nigerian Rubiks Cube".[12]
