|Past members||Mujtaba Habibi|
The band's members all resided outside Afghanistan during the Taliban era, returning to the country following the fall of the Taliban. During the Taliban era singer, songwriter and guitarist Sulyman Qardash lived in Uzbekistan, bass guitarist Siddique Ahmad in Pakistan, and drummer Mujtaba Habibi in Iran (he was replaced by Raby Adib in 2014). They formed in 2008, and played in New Delhi, India, in 2009, at the South Asian Bands Festival.
As the members of the group originate from different Afghan regions, they do not share a common first language, and perform in English. The Guardian called their music " indie rock that is peaceful, wistful and positive, with shades of 90s Britpop and shoegaze". They are influenced by British bands such as Radiohead and Travis.
The group had planned to release their first album in 2010;  but it wasn't until 2013 that it came out. In 2012, the band instigated a crowd funding project on Sellaband to record their first album and undertake a European tour.
