Group history[edit]

Their two singles were played on Radio 1, BBC 6Music, Xfm, and WFMU. The girls have also played sessions for Marc Riley on BBC 6Music, have been interviewed on Phill Jupitus's 6Music's breakfast show twice, plus sessions for Resonance FM, and WFMU in New York. The band's Technicolor mayhem videos have been on heavy rotation at every Topshop in Europe, and "Gonna Rip Up Your Photograph" won the accolade of being voted in the shop's top 40 videos of the year.

The band has toured extensively, and have gained plaudits across the UK, in the US, Spain, France, Holland, Belgium, Norway, Ireland, and Switzerland. They have played at festivals from Benidorm's Wild Weekend to the Glastonbury Festival, Leeds Carling Weekend, Bestival, The Big Chill, Lost Vagueness, Litfest, Italy's Festival Beat 15 and Ireland's Electric Picnic. They have played with bands including The Cramps, The Damned, Electric Eel Shock, Art Brut, The Subways, The Rezillos, The Monks, The 5,6,7,8s, and were once supported by James Blunt.

The band continues to play across the UK and Europe and after a successful mini-tour in France in August 2013. They've written the theme song called Searching For Simon for the sci-fi comedy feature film, The Search For Simon, by Martin Gooch, which has been highly acclaimed by the likes of Michael Palin and Paul Greengrass, and has been screened at festivals worldwide.
